Designing for safety

Safety In And Around The Home

Author: Australia Dept of Housing and Construction,
Type: Book Section
Year: 1981

Houses should be designed not only for adults but with the expectation that children can use them just as easily and safely and that they will not be tempted to investigate potentially harmful objects.
