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.

According to CPSC’s most recent report, 459 children died from tip-over incidents between 2000 and 2018 in the U.S. Data shows that about every 43 minutes a child is injured from a TV or furniture tipping over.
A new 30-second TV PSA, available in both English and Spanish, illustrates how quickly a tip- over tragedy can occur, even when parents are nearby. With more families staying at home due to COVID-19 restrictions, there is an increased risk for tip-overs. Entitled: Even When You’re Watching, this PSA contains real, terrifying footage of tip-overs caught on video monitors, and, in one case, an incident filmed by a mother carefully watching her toddler.
