In-School Road Safety Education. Globally, 1,000 young people a day die on the roads. Safe Kids develops culturally sensitive educational materials and partners with schools, teachers’ unions and governments to provide road safety education to students.
Every year infants die in their sleep from SIDS and accidental suffocation. They are the leading causes of death among babies age 0 to 12 months, with those 2 to 4 months of age most at risk.
Parents can reduce risk of this tragedy by following some simple guidelines to make sure the sleeping baby’s breathing remains clear and unobstructed.
Each year in the United States, more than 2,200 children – or six kids a day – die from an injury in the home. Parents just can’t imagine a serious injury could happen to their kids, until it does. Our national home safety initiative educates parents, grandparents and caregivers about the simple things they can do to create an environment where kids can be active, healthy and safe at home.
Our sports safety program is a national campaign to raise awareness and provide education on how to avoid sports-related injuries. It addresses the most common and severe injuries in sports today, including acute and overuse injuries and concussions.
