Families love to gather around their flat panel televisions to watch their favorite movies and sporting events or play their favorite games. Most parents are not aware of the safety risks that flat panel TVs pose for their children. Here are some alarming facts from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report on flat panel TV safety:
· A child is killed every three weeks from an unsecured TV
· Every 45 minutes a child visits an emergency room due to a TV tip-over related injury
· Between 2000 and 2011, 215 fatalities have resulted from TV tip-over
SANUS and Safe Kids Worldwide recently launched a TV safety initiative to educate consumers on the risks of unsecured flat panel TVs and to offer safe solutions for families by reducing TV tip-over related injuries and fatalities. Due to the increasing size and new ultra thin designs on the market, today's flat panel TVs can easily top over when bumped or pulled.
