Jeff Baril – Massachusetts

Safe Beginnings

Jeff Baril is the owner of Safe Beginnings in Massachusetts. Jeff has been a childproofer for 23 years and earned the Advanced Certified Professional Childproofer certification. Safe Beginnings is the New England distributer and installer for Protect-A-Child removable pool safety fences.

Being a dad planted the seeds for his childproofing business.

Jeff Baril is the father of two daughters, ages 26 and 18. Being a dad was the motivator for the creation of Safe Beginnings which Jeff started with his wife, Susan, in 1991. When they became parents for the first time, they were aware of the need to childproof their home but were still caught off-guard when their baby began to crawl. They quickly set out to find childproofing products to make their home safer but after many shopping trips, returned empty handed or dissatisfied with their purchases. The seeds were planted for their business and for helping other moms and dads with the same challenges.

How do you stay up to date with the best products and best childproofing techniques?

Jeff stays active by attending industry meetings and trade shows as well as being an active member of the IAFCS. He has served as the President of the IAFCS for nine years. He is also involved in product design and manufactures many of the products he installs.

What are the main reasons people choose to work with you?

Many clients lack the time, tools or expertise to childproof their homes. Our customers often do not know what items to select. We can accomplish in a matter of hours what would take families several weekends to do.

A recent client shared,  “From the first phone call through completion of service, our experience with Safe Beginnings was THE BEST. This is a business owned and operated by a family that TRULY cares about providing the best in customer service, safe products, and careful and expert installation. I had no fear letting them drill into the patio around our pool knowing that they had installed many pool fences and knew exactly what they were doing. They were super friendly, gave great advice since we had just moved and were starting child proofing our new house… I just can’t say enough.”
