In brief: Global safety

Gates on stairs, locks on doors, locked up medications and cleaning supplies, outlet covers, cords for electronics hidden safely, etc.
Firearms should be stored unloaded separate from ammunition and locked.

In brief: Be cautious

As babies learn to walk, they will grab anything to hold on, including electrical cords attached to coffee pots.
Babies fall often at this stage and furniture with sharp edges or stonework may be dangerous. Burns and drowning are possible hazards at this age as baby explores the house. Avoid small toys or toys with small pieces that may break off and become lodged in the throat or lungs.
