The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is extending its blind cord safety awareness campaign to five new regions in Scotland.

In order to raise awareness of the dangers of looped blind cords, local authorities will hand out thousands of Make It Safe packs, informing people with guidance on how they can ensure their children avoid any accidents.

Jennifer Henderson, RoSPA Scotland’s home safety officer, said: “We’re delighted that a further 12,000 families can benefit from the Make it Safe initiative thanks to the generous support of Scottish businesses."

RoSPA has advised parents to search for blinds that do not have cords or chains, especially if they are being fitted in a child's bedroom.

This news comes after the organisation welcomed new additions to the Public Health Outcomes Framework, which could convince firms to install new safety signage.

Four explicit accident prevention indicators have been introduced, with RoSPA hoping that sufficient resources are now dedicated to them.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801293142-ADNFCR
