CPSC holds roundtable on crib safety
The roundtable was attended by consumer advocates, safety groups, manufacturers, retailers, government regulators from the US, Europe and Canada and testing labs. CPSC staff presented useful information about the incidents, injuries and deaths they see involving cribs and other sleep environments as well as a comparison of standards and a glimpse at their Early Warning System for reviewing sleep environment incidents. All their presentations as well as those from KID and the other presentors can be found on CPSC's website. The afternoon allowed time for an exchange of ideas from the audience on ways to improve crib safety.
