Christmas safety tips for whānau

  • Firmly mount TVs to a wall or a piece of furniture, or place the older models onto low stable furniture that is able to hold the weight. You can secure the base with screws for extra stability.

  • Use brackets, braces or wall straps to secure unstable or top-heavy furniture to the wall. Dressers, bookcases, and mirrors are what we mean here. It’s also good to put stops on dresser drawers to prevent them from being fully pulled out.

  • Place items such as iPads, DVDs and remotes It’s best to place them out of reach where they can’t be seen such as in a locked cupboard.
