A senior official from Abu Dhabi Quality and Conformity Council (Abu Dhabi QCC) reiterated the importance of using certified window protection and fall prevention devices to boost child safety in the UAE capital.
The decree requires building owners to install approved fall prevention devices on all windows and openings leading outdoors, where falls can occur.
Abu Dhabi government has issued a directive asking building owners to use only those window fall prevention devices that have been approved by the Quality and Conformity Council (QCC) as part of its ongoing efforts to promote child safety across the emirate.
Organizations such as ASTM International (formally the American Society for Testing and Materials) have written technical standards for window fall prevention devices.
Don't forget chairs, stools, handrails and other fall prevention devices.
We compared households with different demographic and home structure characteristics, determining that fall hazards are prevalent in many types of households, and use of fall prevention devices is limited," Marshall explains.
