CPSC launches important 'Anchor It' safety campaign

When individuals become new parents, they generally develop a heightened sense of awareness when it comes to safety hazards. When surveying their home, the houses of loved ones and other frequented surroundings, they begin to see any number of safety hazards which could compromise their vulnerable infant, toddler or child's safety.

One of the primary hazards that parents and caregivers of babies, toddlers and young children must guard against are furniture and electronic tipping hazards. If a large electronic piece of equipment or a large piece of furniture tips over onto a child, that child could become severely injured or that child could die. As a result, it is vitally important that parents and caregivers anchor large tipping hazards in order to keep young and vulnerable individuals safe.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recently launched a significant campaign to educate the public about these kinds of tipping hazards. "Anchor It!" will hopefully inspire anyone who is regularly in the presence of very young individuals to anchor tipping hazards in order to prevent injuries and death.

If you could benefit from anchoring certain tipping hazards but you are unsure of how to do so, do not hesitate to log onto the CPSC's website and check out the information available on this subject. According to the CPSC, a tipping hazard kills an American child roughly every two weeks of the year. In addition, 38,000 Americans require emergency medical care as a result of these tipping hazards annually. Please take the time to secure any tipping hazards in your home. Your future self and young loved ones will likely thank you for your efforts.
