Is the bed safe? Does it comply with all the safety standards? Where was it manufactured and do you trust the quality control of that country? Read up on the safety standards before shopping so you know. Are there obvious safety issues like sharp, protruding edges, unfinished wood, or splinters? Any violations in this area could lead to serious injuries. Beds coming from a reputable furniture manufacturer should be compliant with safety standards.
Is the bed sturdy? When assembled, it should not wobble. If you are looking at a bed in a store, shake it to see if it is sturdy. When you assemble the bed at home, check again before letting your children sleep in it. Screws and nuts should be tightened on a regular schedule to prevent loosening. Compare the weight of the bed as heavier beds are usually sturdier and wobble less.
This cannot be said enough. The safety of your children should be your primary concern when constructing your bunk beds. Various national groups have been set up to monitor and test the safety of bunk beds. If you`re interested in a particular brand, ask if it meets the voluntary safety guidelines of the American Standards of Testing and Materials (ASTM) and the minimum safety standards of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Both of these groups have been around for a long time, and their approval indicates a quality, tested product. Make sure your mattress fits properly. A space greater than three inches should not be tolerated.

Many of these accidents can be avoided by having safety rails on both sides of the top bed. If one side of the bed is against the wall, that can be sufficient-but it must be against the wall. There are also regulations regarding headboards. There is a link to a page with the regulations at the bottom of this article for those who wish to read further.
