In 2015, the WCMA created a "Best for Kids" program to help consumers identify window blinds that were safe in households with kids.
CPSC advises consumers to replace any corded blinds with cordless ones. For households with corded blinds, the CPSC suggests the following tips:
Move any furniture away from windows or cords to make them tougher to reach.
Keep tasseled pull cords as short as possible.
Remove dangling cords, and keep any others out of reach.
Double check cord stops are properly installed to limit their movement.
Keep continuous-loop cords on draperies and vertical blinds anchored to a floor or wall.
