Every year children are injured by hazards found in the home and around it. The good moderns is that the risk of injury can be reduced or avoided if child securety devices are used and reminded ancienter children who activate or connect the devices after turning them off or disconnected.

Most of these securety devices are relatively inexpensive and are readily available in difficultware stores, playground equipment, supermarkets, drug stores that sell products to make home improvements, on the Internet and through catalogs. Safety devices should be firm enough to prevent access of children and at the same time easy to use for an adult.

To be effective, they must be installed properly. Follow the installation instructions carefully. Also, remember that no device is completely childproof; have been known to youngsters who have found a way to disable or disconnect.

Here are some child securety devices that can help reduce injuries in young children. The red numbers correspond to those found in the drawing on the back of the house.

 

1.

Use  latches and locks  on cabinets and drawers in the kitchen, bathrooms and other areas to help prevent incidents of poisoning and other injuries. Install locks and latches on cabinets and drawers can help prevent children from gaining access to medicines, cleaning products, matches or cigarette lighters, as well as knives and other sharp objects.

Even products with securety caps must be locked and kept out of reach of children. This packaging is not childproof.Buy locks and latches that can be easily installed and used by an adult, but at the same time be firm enough to withstand children halons.

2.

Use  Safety Gates  to help prevent falls down stairs and to keep children from entering the bedroom and other areas that are potentially risky.

Install securety gates that children can not be removed easily, but that adults can open and close easily. At the top of the stairs only use gates that screw to the wall. Use securety gates that meet current securety standards. Replace ancient doors that have a "V" as the space between bars is large enough so that the head and neck of a child entrapment.

3.

Use  Knob Covers Doors and Locks  to help prevent children from entering areas that are potentially risky. The knob covers and door locks can help keep children away from risky places.

Make sure the guard door knob to be firm and to allow an adult to open the door rapidly in an emergency.

4.

Use  anti-scald devices  for faucets and shower and set the temperature of your water heater to 120 degrees Fahrenheit to help prevent burns from hot water. The devices used to prevent burns for adjusting the temperature of the water can help reduce the chance of burns.

5.

Use  SMOKE ALARMS  at every level of your home, inside each bedroom and outside sleeping areas used to alert your family in case of fire. Examine the smoke alarms once a month to make sure they are working. Replace the batteries at least once a year or consider using batteries that last 10 years.

6.

Use  Window Guards Window and Mesh Networks and Security  to help prevent falls from windows, balconies and terraces. Check these securety devices frequently to make sure they are secure and properly installed and maintained properly. Do not open windows more than four inches. The space between the bars of the grates should not be more than four inches. If you have security bars for windows, make sure at least one window in each room can be easily used for escape in case of fire. The metal nets are not effective for preventing children from falling out of windows.

7.

Use  Receipts edges or corners  to help prevent injuries from falls against sharp edges of furniture and fireplaces. Ensure that guards are tight on the furniture and in the corners of the chimney.

8.

Use  safety covers on outlets Plates  to help prevent electrocution incidents. Safety covers for outlets and plates can help protect children from electrical shock and possible electrocution. Make sure children can not remove the securety covers that easily and are large enough to prevent children can choke on them. If you replace the receptacles, buy those that are resistant to handling children.

9.

Use a  Detector Alarm Carbon Monoxide (CO)  to help prevent incidents of CO poisoning. All consumers should install alarms carbon monoxide near sleeping areas in their homes. Replace the batteries at least once a year.

10.

CPSC recommends the use  of curtains and blinds without cords  in homes where small children were strangled to prevent it. Children can wrap the cord around the neck or reach a cord that seem inaccessible and entangled in the loop formed. If your windows have curtains and blinds 2000 or previous years and can not buy modern slip, call the Security Council Curtains and Blinds (Window Coverings Safety Council, WCSC) at 800-506-4636 or visit  www.windowcoverings. org  to request a free repair kit. A potentially deadly bond can be formed in the blinds when a child pulls the cord up inside the blind. Consumers should know that the repair kit WSSC does not eliminate the danger of the cords hanging freely from many shades and blinds common.

11.

Use  fasteners to Avoid Fallen Furniture and Appliances . Furniture, TVs and ranges can tip over and crush children. Deaths and injuries occur when children climb onto, lie down or push on television stands, cabinets, bookcases, desks, chests and stoves. For added security, anchor these products to the floor or attach them to the wall. Independent stoves should be installed with supports to prevent rollovers.

12.

Use  Layers of Protection Around Pools and Spas . It is essential that the pool and spa are completely surrounded by a wall. This should include a fence 4 feet tall and has gates that are closed and secure themselves.If the house is one side of the barrier, the doors leading to the pool should have an alarm or the pool should have a power securety cover. The pool alarms can serve as an additional layer of protection.

Sliding glass doors must be secured after each use is not an effective barrier to prevent access to the pool.

This is Real: The World Climate is Changing

Our Earth is warming. The average temperature of the Earth has risen about 1.4 ° F (0.7 ° C over) over the last century. It is projected that the average temperature rise of approximately 2 to 11.5 ° F (1.1 ° C to 6.4 ° C) over the next hundred years. Small changes in average global temperature could lead to large and potentially dangerous changes in climate and weather.

The evidence is clear. Rising temperatures have been accompanied by changes in the weather and climate. Many sites have seen changes in rainfall, which resulted in more flooding, drought or heavy rain and waves more frequent and severe heat.The oceans and glaciers on the planet have also undergone some big changes: the oceans are warming and acidifying, the ice caps are melting and sea levels are rising. As these and other changes are more pronounced in the coming decades, they will have to present challenges to our society and our environment.

Learn about the signs of climate change in the United States.


Humans are largely responsible for recent climate change

smoke coming from a chimney in a factory

Over the past century, human activity has downloaded large amounts of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Most greenhouse gases come from the burning of fossil fuels that produce energy, but deforestation, industrial processes and some agricultural practices also emit gases into the atmosphere.

The greenhouse gases act like a blanket around the Earth, which traps energy in the atmosphere and causes it to heat.This phenomenon is called the greenhouse effect is natural and necessary to sustain life on Earth. However, the accumulation of greenhouse gases can change the Earth´s climate and dangerous effects to human health and welfare and ecosystems.

The choices we make today will affect the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere will in the near future and for years to come.

Learn about the causes of climate change .


Climate change affects all

Our lives are linked to climate. Human societies have adapted to relatively stable climate which have enjoyed since the last Ice Age ended several millennia ago. A warming climate will result in process changes that could affect our water supplies, agriculture, energy and transport systems, the natural environment and to our own health and safety.

Some of the climate changes are inevitable. carbon dioxide can remain in the atmosphere for about a century so the Earth will continue to warm over the coming decades. The hotter it gets, the greater the risk of more severe changes in climate and Earth system. Although it is difficult to predict the exact impacts of climate change, it is clear that the climate to which we are accustomed to is no longer a guide to which we can trust what we can expect in the future.

We can reduce the risks we face from climate change. Choosing options that reduce pollution from greenhouse gases and prepare for the changes that are already underway, we can reduce the risks of climate change. Our decisions will shape the world in which our children and grandchildren will live.

Learn about the impacts of climate change and adaptation to change .


We can make a difference

hands holding a globe

You can take action. You can take steps at home, on the road, in your office to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and the risks associated with climate change. Many of these steps can save you money; some, such as walking or cycling to work could improve your health! You may also participate in activities to support local or state level energy efficiency, clean energy programs and other climate programs.

Calculate your carbon footprint and find ways to reduce their emissions through simple actions you take daily.

EPA and other federal agencies are taking action. EPA is working to protect the health and welfare of the people in this country through common sense measures to reduce pollution and greenhouse gases to help communities prepare for change climate.

Health care for childrens: basic information.

What should I look for when choosing child care? Information is available at Child Care Aware of Missouri (Resource and Referral).

How can I get a list of child care providers in my area? A list of licensed and license-exempt child care providers is available at Child Care Provider Search and through your regional resource and referral agency Child Care Aware of Missouri.

What inspection requirements do licensed and license-exempt facilities have? Both licensed and license-exempt facilities are required to have regular fire, sanitation and health inspections. In addition, licensed facilities have additional compliance monitoring inspections each year.

Do all persons who care for children (who are not related to the provider) in their homes have to be licensed by the state? No. A person may care for four or fewer children who are not *related to the provider without being licensed.

What should I do if I notice an in-home provider is caring for more than four (4) unrelated children? Providing unlicensed child care for more than 4 children, who are not *related to the provider, is against the law in Missouri. If you know someone who is providing illegal care, contact us and file a complaint.

How many children may a licensed facility care for at one time? There are several criteria that determine a facility’s licensed capacity. These include:

  1. Square footage for indoor and outdoor areas;
  2. Director’s education and work experience; and
  3. Amount of materials and equipment.

What happens if my child gets sick while they are at the licensed facility? Child care rules document what symptoms require providers to observe children more closely and what symptoms require that providers send children home. Your provider is required to contact you when signs of illness are observed.

How will I learn about the provider’s rules and policies? A licensed child care facility is required to provide the parents with written policies, program goals, admission, care and discharge of the child at the time of enrollment. The provider must also have a copy of the child care licensing rules available for review. License-exempt providers are required to give parents a Notice of Parental Responsibility which includes the facility’s discipline philosophy and policy, facility’s staff/child ratio, and the educational philosophy and policy. Sec. 210.254, RSMo

Can my provider give medications to my child? The center or home provider is not required to administer medication. However, if your provider chooses to administer medication, there are guidelines in the rules that must be followed for licensed and license-exempt child care providers.

What happens if my provider breaks a rule? When it is determined that the provider is not in compliance, the provider is notified at the time of inspection. If there is a consistent pattern of non-compliance or areas that present a danger to the health, safety and welfare of children, disciplinary action will be taken.

What types of disciplinary action can be taken? Disciplinary actions include the following:

Denial of Initial License - A formal action notifying a person why he or she cannot receive a child care license, taken when an applicant for initial license does not comply with statute or licensing rule requirements.

Denial of Renewal - A formal action notifying a person why the child care license will not be renewed at the expiration of the licensing period. This action occurs when the licensee does not comply with statute and licensing rule requirements.

Letter of Warning - Formal correspondence that notifies a licensee that violations have occurred. It is removed from public record after one year.

Letter of Censure - Formal correspondence that notifies a licensee that violations have occurred. It is filed permanently in the public record.

Probation - Places conditions or terms on a license that may exceed the licensing rule requirements for a specific period of time. It may lead to further discipline if the licensee fails to comply with the terms of the probationary license.

Settlement Agreement - This is a negotiation process by which we and the licensee finalize a formal agreement on specific terms or conditions to allow continuation of the license.

Immediate suspension - This is the only action taken by us that immediately terminates the licensed status. This occurs in situations of imminent bodily harm to children.

Revocation - This is a formal action that removes a child care license.

Injunctive Relief - This is a court order that causes a person to cease operating a child care facility or imposes conditions to protect children who are in care at the facility from imminent danger.

Where can I get sanitizer test strips for my child care? Providers are required to have a test kit for testing sanitizer solution concentrations.  Restaurant supply stores are generally considered the best place to obtain test strips for the various approved sanitizers.

Why is hand washing so important? Good hand washing is the single most important thing a child care provider can do to prevent the spread of disease.  It is critical that provider and child alike learn to wash their hands frequently.
