Children, especially younger ones under the age of 5, are at serious risk for injuries when walking up or down stairs OR when on or near escalators. When a summer camp, school, or day care center is supervising children on campus OR on a field trip, it is important to provide the necessary supervision to make sure that children are kept out of harm’s way. Many staircases are built in a manner in which a child could crawl or squeeze between the bar. As such, at any given moment, a child, who is not under the constant watch or supervision of a child care provider, could slip away and suffer from a fall that leads to serious personal injuries or even death.
