Generally speaking, the garage is not a safe place for unsupervised young children to be. With the summer months upon us, time spent in or near the garage will probably increase, and precautionary measures are needed in order to prevent accidents. The garage can be a busy place! It can serve as a workshop, storage shed, and much more. When thinking about the items that a garage contains, it becomes clear that the garage is a potentially dangerous environment – especially for children. For many, the garage will not only house a vehicle, but sharp tools, toxic and flammable chemicals, insecticides, and fertilizers may also be found there. Furthermore, there may be countless items that could fall over onto a child and result in serious injury. While many parents and caregivers would not dream of allowing small children in a garage area unsupervised, it is important to utilize safety strategies in order to mitigate risks.
