Water Safety and Window Safety

Last updated: 25/03/2021

The CCG East of Berkshire produced the following short video clip in 2017 and the message remains important today and can be used across widely.  Using messages around water safety and window safety, the CCG decided to produce the video in response to increasing concerns about the distractions of mobile phones and how use of electronic devices may impact on risks to supervision of babies and children. We are conscious that many children are at home, the weather is good and water play will increase during COVID-19.

Up to 60 children drown every year in the UK. However, most of these deaths could be prevented.

Babies and infants need constant supervision around water – whether this is in the bath, paddling or swimming pool, by ponds, rivers or lakes. They also need supervision around open windows.
