Hello, I’m Inez Tenenbaum, Chairman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission. In my first hours as Chairman, I spoke frankly to families and consumers across the country. I said that as the leader of this important safety agency, I was committed to creating an open and transparent CPSC. We have kept our word. But now we are taking our commitment even further with the launch of CPSC 2.0. CPSC 2.0 is all about letting you know what’s going on at CPSC and gives you an opportunity to participate in the safety discussion.
I’m very excited to announce that you’ll now find us on a new CPSC blog site we’re calling “OnSafety.” You can also find us on Youtube, Twitter and Flickr. These are terrific tools that I plan to use frequently to keep you up to date on what’s happening on issues that affect you directly. These sites are for the moms, dads, grandparents and others who want to protect themselves, their homes and those they care about.
I’ll do my best to keep you up to date by posting here frequently. You’ll also see on our new site a video series: “The 60 Seconds of Safety.” If you have a minute to spend with us, you may learn something that’ll keep you safe for a lifetime. And I want to hear from you – I want to know what’s working for you in keeping your families safe and if there’s something you’d like to see on this site. CPSC stands for safety, especially the safety of children. Together, we can take safety to the next level.
