We all share responsibility to keep children safe.
In this podcast Gail Greatorex of Product Safety Solutions in Melbourne, Australia talks with David Schwebel, Professor of Psychology, and Associate Dean for Research in the Sciences at University of Alabama at Birmingham.
David begins by talking about a series of tragic toddler deaths and how his research led to important changes in the design of a product.
David and Gail then discuss the need to think about how children perceive and interact with products.
David also talks about work he has done on the vigilance of swimming pool guards, and how this has lessons for supervision in other activities.
