Snap and click. Install childproof latches on all drawers and cabinets.
Secure the perimeter: Install ground fault circuit interrupters on all electrical outlets.
Lid down. Keep the toilet lid closed at all times and install a toilet-lid latch.
Cut the power. Unplug hair dryers, curling irons and electric razors when you’re not using them.
Solid ground: Apply non-skid strips to the bottom of your bathtub or shower, and install non-slip pads under any rugs.
Watch the windows: Use cordless blinds on your windows.
Up and away. Keep sharp objects, medications, mouthwash, cosmetics and other chemicals in a locked cabinet out of reach. Only use childproof caps on medicine bottles.
