Summary: The purpose of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's FY 2015 Agency Financial Report (AFR) is to assist Congress, the President, and the American people to assess the agency's stewardship over resources with which it is entrusted.
Extract: (, and Safe To Sleep® Initiative ( I continue to speak out about finding ways to help children enjoy the many benefits of sports, while promoting meaningful culture change in youth sports, in order to reduce the acute and chronic effects of repetitive hits to the brain. These initiatives promote a culture of safety. Rather than focusing on a single product or product class in a reactive manner, these initiatives encourage our staff and stakeholders to consider an expansive view of product safety that is active and considers all aspects of the consumer product lifecycle, from design to disposal.

Summary: The CPSC Inspector General audit of the PCSC's FOIA requests processes
Extract: Under the section "Frequently Requested Documents, In-depth Investigation and Incident reports, Reports by Topic" section, GCOS lists only three subject areas: crib bumpers, drywall, and recreational off-highway vehicles. We requested the mechanism management used to determine frequently requested topics, and found no performance of such analysis. GCOS does not update the FOIA website in a timely manner. Upon review of the "Search for Investigations and Incident Reports by fiscal year" section, we noted that the most recent reports available were from FY 2012. GCOS does not always properly index files. We selected the "Recreational off-Highway Vehicles, Consumer Incident Reports" link, which provided a 320-page document.

Summary: A briefing paper for the Commission to consider a draft notice of proposed rulemaking for publication in the Federal Register that would establish a safety standard for infant bouncer seats.
Extract: 6) In September 2008, a 2-month-old infant was put to sleep and secured in a bouncer, which was placed in a crib (080917HBB3900). The infant's mother fed the infant at 12 a.m., and then approximately 4 hours later checked on the infant again and found the infant hanging out of the bouncer with her head and upper torso down toward the crib mattress while her left leg was still intertwined in the restraints. The medical examiner ruled the cause of death as mechanical asphyxia. It is HS staff's opinion that the placement of the bouncer in the crib created the hazardous environment in this incident.

Summary: Widmeyer Communications Inc - Pool Safety Campaign
Extract: The CPSC's work to help ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals - contributed significantly to the decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years. In 2010, CPSC created Pool Safely: Simple Steps Save Lives, a national public education campaign to reduce childhood drowning, non-fatal drownings and entrapments in pools and spas. The campaign carries out the public information and education requirements of Section 1407 of the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act (hereafter referred to as the VGB Act).
