7 Top Tips
Before you buy:
1. Avoid 2nd hand car seats, you cannot be sure of their history.
2. Research & Prioritise Safety. All seats must pass minimum standards of safety some manufacturers test way beyond these standards
3. Get independent advice If not from Child Seat Safety then contact your local authority road safety team. Many have been through the IOSH course or can direct you to someone who is experienced

4. Ask for the car seat expert in store to serve you. Ask what qualifications they have. If they are IOSH approved in Child Seat Safety Awareness they should be able to provide you with their accreditation number.
5. If they aren’t available ask for an appointment
6. Where possible make sure your IOSH expert shows you how to fit the seat in your car. This avoids confusion & should give you confidence to fit the seat correctly yourself
7. Don’t worry if you haven’t done this. Car seat fitting clinics occur across the country so drop in & get your car seat checked
