Legislation + Safety

Did you know that in Australia, a child is admitted to hospital with serious or life-threatening injuries as a result of a fall from windows and balconies nearly every week.

With more and more people living and working in high-rise dwellings, it’s vital that we embrace safety measures to keep children as safe as possible.
Based on the outcomes of the Westmead Children’s Hospital ‘Kids Don’t Fly’ working party, NSW is leading the nation in the campaign for Australia-wide safety measures that will prevent unnecessary tragedy resulting from falls from windows.
