CPSC Anchor It!
Consumer Product Safety Commission:
CPSC is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of the thousands of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $900 billion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard. CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products – such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals – contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years. A major public education initiative is swimming pool safety.

One child dies every two weeks and a child goes to the emergency room every 24 minutes because a TV, furniture – or a combination of both – tips over and falls onto them. With these statistics in mind, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) launched the Anchor It! campaign, a nationwide public education effort aimed at stopping child deaths and injuries that result from tragic tip-overs. The goal of the campaign is to prevent these incidents by educating parents and caregivers with young children about simple, low-cost steps they can take to secure the furniture and TVs in their home.
