Make it Safe is a campaign by the British Blind and Shutter Association (BBSA) to promote window blind safety in homes, public buildings and other environments.

If you have a window blind which has an operating cord or chain that forms a loop it needs to be kept out of the reach of babies and young children.
Safety devices for every type of blind are available and can be easily fitted to existing blinds. These include a cord/chain tidy or tensioner to keep looped cords or chains taut and cleats to keep loose cords out of the way.
The first action is to check your blinds!View more information for householders
