In a report published by the Malaysian Journal of Public Health Medicine 2016, [Noor Faradila P. et al., 2016], 34.7% out of 291 respondents not using a child restraint system (CRS) in Central Peninsular Malaysia, indicated that their child has outgrown the CRS. However, when they were asked to specify the child’s age, they are only 4 to 8 years old. 17.9% didn’t use any CRS because their children protest and cry, 15.5% because they think CRS is expensive.
The Ministry of Transport has announced that CRS usage will be made mandatory by 2020. However, awareness of safety seat usage and child passenger safety, in general, is still poor in Malaysia. Would you like to equip yourself in order to help us advocate this awareness among the public?
Have you heard about events where folks get one-on-one personalized instruction on how to properly use their child’s car seat? Join CPSM team of certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPST) and be that community advocate or resource in your local area!
As a CPS technician, you will put your knowledge to work through a variety of activities, including community presentations and/or child safety seat checks where parents and caregivers receive education and hands-on assistance with the proper use of child restraint systems and seat belts. A majority of parents still misuse their child restraints and need help to get it right.
