Part of KID’s mission is to educate parents and caregivers about product safety issues so that they can protect their children from dangerous products.
KID’s educational workshop, Creating Safe Environments for Children outlines the problem of unsafe children’s products, identifies specific product hazards, and provides participants with concrete tools and resources to identify and remove unsafe children’s products from their environments. It is a flexible and interactive presentation that can be adapted for a variety of audiences. Each participant receives KID’s Product Safety Guide, a comprehensive booklet on children’s product safety. Take a look at the reviews of past workshop participants.
In 2017, we debuted our second signature workshop: Is This Safe? A step-by-step guide to assessing infant sleep products. With all of the new products appearing on store shelves, it can be difficult for parents and caregivers to make the safest choices when it comes to infant sleep environments. This presentation will walk participants through an 8-step checklist to quickly evaluate the safety of any infant sleep product. Each participant receives a copy of our Safe Sleep Checklist, a highly useful handout designed to help parents and caregivers assess the safety of any infant sleep product. View the full presentation here.
KID is based in Chicago, IL and offers trainings throughout northern Illinois. We respond to out-of-state requests on a case-by-case basis. If you would like to host a safety workshop at your organization, contact Carson@KidsInDanger.org or call (312) 595-0649.
