AHFA Signs on as Anchor It Campaign Advocate

The American Home Furnishings Alliance (AHFA) is among 20 organizations announced as advocates supporting the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) “Anchor It!” tip-over awareness campaign.

The CPSC launched the program in January 2015. Its a call to action that educates parents and caregivers about the potential dangers of furniture and television tip-overs in the home and urges them to take low-cost steps to prevent these tragedies.

AHFA recently coordinated a “Tip-Over Prevention Is Everyone’s Business” campaign, which seeks to involve all segments of the residential furniture industry in helping educate consumers about potential tip-over hazards in the home. The campaign points manufacturers to the AHFA website, www.ahfa.us, for information on how to comply with the voluntary furniture safety standard and directs others to the CPSC website, www.anchorit.gov, for information and resources to help educate consumers.

“From furniture designers to product manufacturers to retail stores and the sales associates who work in those stores, we can all play a role in educating parents and caregivers about tip-over hazards in the home,” said Andy Counts, CEO of AHFA.
