"Safe Kids Week 2009 : Home Product Safety
May 25th - 31st, 2009
We are pleased to invite you to participate in the 13th annual Safe Kids Week campaign. Safe Kids Week is an exciting national education campaign presented by Safe Kids Canada with sponsor support from Johnson & Johnson. Every year during Safe Kids Week, hundreds of community organizations across the country join Safe Kids Canada to focus attention on preventing injuries to children.
Safe Kids Week is Safe Kids Canada's largest-scale annual public awareness program designed to help reduce the frequency and severity of preventable childhood injuries, the leading cause of death and disability of Canadian children. This year Safe Kids Week will be held from May 25th to May 31st, 2009 and our focus will be on home product safety.
Product related injuries are a leading cause of injury for children under the age of fourteen. The campaign will emphasize education, engineering and enforcement solutions to reduce product related injuries and fatalities.
