One of the most comprehensive resources for child safety is the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The CPSC protects the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction. The Commission is devoted to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard or can injure children. The CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products -- such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals -- contributed significantly to the 30 percent decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years.
