Furniture and television tip-over prevention
NRA Best practice guide
Young children can suffer serious injuries from falling furniture and televisions. Some injuries are fatal, with up to two children dying in Australia each year.
The National Retail Association has developed a best practice guide to help retailers, as well as manufacturers and other stakeholders, address the hazard.
The guide focuses on key strategies of improving stability through design, pre-installing anchor devices and educating consumers at point of sale.
The best practice guide contains advice on:
- furniture design
- roles for manufacturers, importers and retailers
- anchoring devices
- user instructions
- consumer education
