Falls affecting children – furniture safety

At least 14 children under 9 years old died in Australia during 2000-2015 after household furniture fell on them.  This is around one death per year.  Be aware of furniture items and televisions that could easily crush children.  A TV or piece of furniture  might look stable but could topple if pushed or grabbed by a child.  Retailers, parents and carers can take steps to help prevent death or serious injury to small children from toppling furniture.
