Abstract：Objective To understand the epidemiological characteristics of product-related injuries among children in Changshan County from 2011 to 2017 and to provide evidence for targeted intervention. Methods The surveillance data of product-related injuries among children aged below 18 years from 2011 to 2017 was collected from three sentinel hospitals in Changshan County. The characteristics of product-related injuries among children were analyzed,especially those injuries caused by furniture,stationery and sporting goods,commodities and toys. Results A total of 5 111 product-related injury cases among children were reported,accounting for 13.49% of product-related injury cases of all age. There were 3 138 boys and 1 973 girls,accounting for 61.40% and 38.60%. There were 2 973 cases less than 10 years old,accounting for 58.17%. The main causes of product-related injuries were road traffic injury（49.46%）,blunt（16.02%）,stab/cut（12.39%）and fall（10.37%）. The main categories of products included transportation equipments（not including motor vehicles,36.83%）,motor vehicles（17.82%）,furniture（12.23%）,stationery and sporting goods（8.45%）,commodities（4.89%）and toys（3.25%）. Stab/cut（53.01%）was the main cause of commodities related injuries;blunt was the main cause of furniture,stationery and sporting goods and toys. The stationery and sporting goods related injuries occurred mainly in schools/public places（64.57%）and sports venues（18.48%）when engaging in sports（54.13%）;furniture,commodities and toys related injuries injured cases occurred at home when engaging in leisure activities. Commodities mainly resulted in sharp/bite/open wound（51.50%）;furniture,stationery and sporting goods and toys mainly resulted in bruises. Most cases were injured in head,slight and allowed home after treated. Conclusion The product-related injuries among children in Changshan County are more boys.
