Why is Window Safety Week Important?
NSC and the Window Safety Task Force established Window Safety Week in 1997 to heighten awareness of the actions homeowners can take to establish window safety and fall prevention as a year-round safety priority.
Window Safety Week, the first full week in April, coincides with the arrival of spring, when people naturally want to open the windows and let in fresh air. The goal of this observance is twofold: for families to understand the role of windows in escaping a fire or other emergency and to learn how to safeguard against window falls.

Use #WindowSafety or #WindowSafetyWeek, and visit the Window Safety Task Force on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn for tips on window safety throughout the week. Be sure to follow and share.
Window Safety Week is in April, but we encourage you to practice window safety year-round. Lives depend on it.
The Window Safety Task Force in partnership with National Safety Council was formed in 1997 to promote greater awareness of window safety. Members include representatives of the Fenestration and Glazing Industry Alliance and the Window & Door Manufacturers Association and other organizations, as well as leading manufacturers of windows, doors and screens.
