hey ...KUDOS to all for great tips... n i would like to add that i had to explain it to my kid too as i also was perennially concerned about their safety and dangers of being lost. what worked in my case is stories n i believe that telling stories to kids is a wonderful way to get your message across and make it more fun and deeper by enacting it. you can deliberately test the learning of the child on this issue by creating scenarios to watch his behaviour.

hey A M, i completely get your anxiety and it is very relevant at this day and age, anurima has in fact written a great article and that talks about all such things in detail, i would recommend that you do go through the Blog and also seeing that your child has a history of getting himself in such situations , it may be a good idea to inform the security guards in your society to keep an eye out, just in case something may happen again. Also as suggested by anurima , a safety latch would be good idea....

Dear A M, I got lost as a child, in another city, but was lucky enough to land in safe hands. What helped was that i knew my home address. Was about 5 though. As Anurima has so rightly said, now is a great time to make your child understand about personal safety.. tell him stories (not scary stories though :)) about how children can be hurt in unfamiliar situations and places.. take care!

I have written the blog keeping in mind the safety issues with all age groups. You could use some of the suggestions written therein. Also, when you have to leave him with his grandparents, please make sure that the main door has a child lock. This will prevent him from leaving the house unsupervised. You can buy safety latches, door locks (toddler proof) from any store selling household items. I suggest doing this as the first step. Then, you may sit with him and explain that it is not safe for him to wander off without an accompanying adult or without permission. If you speak to him in a calm and a friendly tone, he is likely to understand the seriousness of the matter. Good luck.
