Office Child-Proofing


Offices are mine fields for the curious small child. If you have small children, or if children visit, you will need to child-proof your office. Secure the cords from you window blinds. Put dangerous things in locked boxes, locked cabinets, or locked drawers. Take a look around your office for the small things little ones might swallow, things that are poison, or other items that could cause injury; for example:

  • Rubber bands
  • Paperclips
  • Glue
  • Pushpins
  • Cigarette lighters or matches
  • Razor blades or X-acto knives
  • Drafting or drawing tools
  • Scissors
  • Paper cutter

You will need to teach small children that your work computer is not a play computer, or you may want to put it where small children can't reach it; CD drawers are too tempting. If small children can reach your keyboard you may find that documents get seriously edited when you leave the room - kids love to push buttons.
