Safety in Use Guidelines
Make sure all cords and chains are secured and out of the reach from children
Do not allow cords or chains to hang free
Where possible, cords should end and/or be secured at least 1.6m up from the floor
Never put a cot, bed, high chair or playpen near a window or patio door where a child can reach the blind cords or chain
Keep sofas, chairs, tables, shelves or book cases away from windows to prevent children climbing up and reaching blind cords/chain
