Children’s Hospital of Michigan in partnership with Kohl’s Cares has launched the Kohl’s SAFE 4 Kids (KS4K) program to Strengthen Accident-Free Environments.

KS4K focuses on pregnant women, caregivers, and children from birth to five years of age to enhance their ability to prevent the leading causes of unintentional childhood injuries in our community.

KS4K Offers SAFE Baby Workshop

SAFE Baby 101 is a safety workshop for caregivers who are pregnant or have a child/children who are under 12 months old and less then 30 pounds. This workshop focuses on the leading causes of unintentional and preventable injuries to children. Each topic includes free safety materials and equipment to ensure children will be SAFE:

  • Fire Prevention – Smoke Alarm
  • Car Seat Safety – Convertible Car Seat
  • Burn Prevention - Hot Water Tester

Workshops are held monthly and participants must be prepared to stay for 3 hours. Workshop space is limited. If you are interested in attending, please complete the registration for ONE DATE (below), and a program coordinator will contact you.

Please note:Registration for the next upcoming class, ends the FRIDAY before the class. Class participants will only receive ONE of each type of safety equipment (car seat, tub tester, smoke alarm, etc).

  • Also, participants that have attended a KS4K workshop in the past are NOT eligible.

KS4K Focus Areas:

Fire Prevention – Children under 8 are at greatest risk of death and injury due to home fires, properly working smoke alarms and being prepared can prevent these tragedies.

Child Passenger Safety – A high rate of misuse and nonuse of car seats is frequently observed in the Detroit area, while properly used car seats reduce the incidence of severe injuries and deaths in infants and children.

Burn Safety – According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), every day, more than 300 children ages 0 to 19 are treated in emergency rooms for burn-related injuries and two children die as a result of being burned. However, these emotionally and physically damaging injuries can be prevented.

Initially, the KS4K program will serve families in five Detroit zip codes (48224, 48205, 48219, 48223 and 48228) to educate community professionals, parents, other caregivers, and school-aged children to enhance their knowledge of the behavioral modifications necessary to prevent tragedies.

If you are an agency working with families with children from birth to eight years old in these zip codes and would like to learn more about our program, please email Kohl’s Safe 4 Kids at:chmSAFETY@dmc.org.
