The objectives of this project, completed at the Danish Consumer Council, were to present a comprehensive analysis of children's accidents, provide a comparison of risk perception among Copenhagen institutions, and find important trends in accident data. The following three procedures were used to gather information: analysis of accident data, field work done at playgrounds, and interviews with childcare personnel. Through these methods, problems and trends were detected in child safety, and finally, recommendations for improvements were formulated and presented.
