TV Safety Initiative: Giveaway by Sanus

Is your family safe from your flat panel television?

Flat panel TVs are prone to tipping over. I experienced this first hand. Thankfully no one was injured. The TV in our living room is setting on a stand on a table. It has tipped over not once, but TWICE! in the past 2 years. No one was near the television either time it happened, so, likely, we set it up incorrectly.

Flat Panel TV Stats

Even so, here are some startling statistics:

2011 US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report on flat panel TV safety revealed:

  • ·         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
  • ·         An estimated 17,000 people each year, the majority of which are children, are treated for injuries from TV tip-overs
  • ·         Reported cases have increased almost 25% from 2006  to 2010, and over the last 10 years, injuries have increased by 31%
