Hemophilia: The best way would be to remove items the child could trip on, such as loose rugs. Padding around fixed items with a sharp edge (fireplaces, window ledges) could help.

Childproof home: Most important is to pad shar corners of furniture and cabinets. Make sure the handrails on stairs is secure to prevent falls. Make sure rugs have non slip pads. If there are toys on which he can climb, make sure you have put soft material under it in case he falls from it.
