The Window Safety Task Force, under the NSC Community Safety Division, is comprised of members representing the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA), the Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) , and the Screen Manufacturers Association (SMA) in cooperation with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and other organizations, was formed in 1997 to promote greater awareness of window safety.
Observed annually during the first full week in April, National Window Safety Week is designed to heighten the awareness of what North Americans can do to help keep their home and family safer from the risk of accidental falls or injuries in the home, especially as windows are open to provide ventilation. While National Window Safety Week is observed annually, safety education occurs throughout the year.
- National Window Safety Week safety observations, resources and downloadable pdfs, and tips for enhancing safety around windows, doors and screens are found here.
The Window Safety Task Force of the National Safety Council strives to provide educational information and heighten safety awareness to help consumers take the necessary action to prevent the risk of window falls and to understand the vital role windows and doors play in fire safety.
Working in conjunction with the National Safety Council, trade associations and their representatives from the window, door and screen manufacturing industries are voluntarily teaming up to help educate and inform the public of the importance of taking proactive measures to enhance safety in the home. The team focused on safety issues is a joint effort of the membership of the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA), the Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA), and the Screen Manufacturers Association (SMA) in cooperation with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) to promote safety awareness.
