The FACTS

Thinking of childhood injuries as "accidental" implies that they are random and beyond control. But here are the facts:

  • 90% of unintentional injuries in young children are preventable.
  • The majority of childhood injures happen around or near the home environment—
    many times in the presence of parents, grandparents or caregivers.
  • Injuries are the leading cause of death and one of the main causes of hospitalization for children 1 to 6 years of age.
  • Parents, grandparents and caregivers have an important role in reducing childhood injuries.
