Host a workshop

KID’s educational workshop, Creating Safe Environments for Children outlines the problem of unsafe children’s products, identifies specific product hazards, and provides participants with concrete tools and resources to identify and remove unsafe children’s products. It is a flexible and interactive presentation which can be adapted for a variety of audiences. Each participant receives KID’s Product Safety Guide– a comprehensive booklet on children’s product safety. Check out our workshop informational flyer for more details and take a look at the reviews of past workshop participants.

In 2017, we debuted our second signature workshop: Is This Safe? A step-by-step guide to assessing infant sleep products. With all of the new products appearing on store shelves, it can be difficult for parents and caregivers to make the safest choices when it comes to infant sleep environments. This presentation will walk participants through an 8-step checklist to quickly evaluate the safety of any infant sleep product. Each participant receives a copy of our Safe Sleep Checklist — a highly useful handout designed to help parents and caregivers assess the safety of any infant sleep product. View the full presentation here.
