Accident prevention and promotion through the environment
Air quality is the environmental factor that I chose. Poor air quality can have a profound impact on an infant’s health & safety in numerous ways, some of which include: increased likelihood of respiratory illnesses such as asthma or bronchitis, susceptibility to allergies & sensitivities to certain pollutants etc..
Aside from this, exposure to higher levels of hazardous particles may also cause developmental delays in young children – meaning they are more likely to encounter problems with learning/cognitive skills later on in life.
In addition, poor indoor air quality can lead to various other issues too such as the accumulation of dust mites & mold spores which could trigger skin irritations/allergic reactions when inhaled. Long-term exposure to polluted outdoors air can increase your risk for developing cardiovascular disease and cancer.
Overall it is clear that adequate ventilation along with regular maintenance and monitoring is essential for maintaining good air quality within one’s home – since this will help ensure that infants remain safe from any potential adverse effects associated with poor environments going forward.
