Indoor play areas, care homes, NHS properties and similar premises benefit from implementing measures to prevent finger trapping accidents .
BS7036 Part 4: Item 7.1 recommends “the use of a finger protection device that either fills the finger trap or minimises the gap so as not to create a finger trap”. Attention to door safety prevents distress, or even disfigurement, from one of the most common accidents.
Schools & Nurseries
Avoid Finger Trapping in Schools and Nurseries.
Head teachers take school safety very seriously as they have a responsibility to protect the children in their care from potential hazards in and around school buildings. One such hazard is unprotected door hinges and the fitting of door finger guards, such as Kindagard, can help dramatically reduce the risk almost immediately.
Accidents tend to occur in Nursery or Primary schools where younger children’s fingers have become trapped in the hinged side of doors which have not been fitted with door finger guards. Injuries can be very serious and accidents can result in finger crushing injuries and, in some severe cases, amputation. There is still a risk with older children in secondary schools although this type of injury is less frequent than with the more vulnerable younger children.
Avoid expensive litigation and the worry that an accident can cause.
If you run a business you need to protect everyone from the dangers of trapped fingers, particularly in high traffic pedestrian areas. Whilst there is no specific legislation at present, if your premises fall within the scope of the Heath, Safety and Welfare Regulations, then you could be deemed negligent if reasonable safety precautions, such as fitting door finger guards, have not been taken. Don’t take the risk when there is a simple, quick and inexpensive solution available. At Home, At Work, At Play – Fit Kindagard® Today!
