Posted By Ken Taylor The International Centre for Consumer Ergonomics at Loughborough University have a nomograph tool for risk assessment in consumer products generally. This could be of help in this instance and, in any event, they are likely to have some views on cot-sides. Contact Lawrence Clift (lclift@ice.co.uk).
