Since October 2013, the Check it Fits Service has provided free child car seat checks at our nationwide face-to-face events. Following the introduction of public health measures in response to Covid-19 this March, we made the decision to suspend the service. Since then we have been working on ways to bring this vital service back in a way that is safe for both the public and our expert checkers.
The RSA Check it Fits Service is now offering FREE virtual child car seat checks. The new virtual service means that parents, guardians, grandparents, and childminders, can now have their child car seats checked by one of our expert checkers from the comfort of their own home. It is easy to avail of the new virtual service. Simply visit www.rsa.ie/checkitfits to book an appointment at a time and date that suits you.
In Ireland as many as 4 out of 5 child car seats are incorrectly fitted which can lead to serious injury or even death in the event of a collision. While we continue to work towards bringing the Check it Fits Service back on the road, we are encouraging people not to wait to have their child car seat checked and book a virtual appointment with Check it Fits today.
We would be delighted if you could help us to raise awareness of child safety in cars by letting colleagues, friends, family members and any other relevant contacts know about our new virtual service. We have developed some supporting material that you can be download here, which may be useful for promoting the new Check it Fits virtual service in your workplace and community and for use on your social media channels.
