Safety Tips for the Bathroom
- If you have a very young brother or sister keep the bathroom door closed at all times to prevent access and never leave them alone in there. For example they could drown in the toilet or bath.
- Never get into a bath unless an adult has first tested the temperature and said it's ok. Many children can get nasty burns and scalds if it is too hot.
- Never play with razors, scissors or other sharp objects in case you cut and injure yourself.
- Don't touch medicines, cosmetics or household detergents (e.g. bleach etc.) and make sure you don't allow your young brother or sister to access them.
