Toy safety is a year round concern, but is heightened during the holidays. While the holidays are a time of joy and celebration for many, unfortunately, toy and holiday decorating injuries and deaths are all too frequent. In 2017, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there were 13 toy-related deaths and 251,700 hospital emergency visits. In addition, there were 3 deaths and 14,700 emergency department visits associated with holiday decorating.

Join this webinar to hear from two of the nation’s leading experts on toy and holiday safety. Nychelle Fleming of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Morag Mackay of Safe Kids Worldwide will provide background data on toy and holiday-related injuries and deaths, toy recalls, and prevention recommendations. They will also share resources available to providers and consumers.
