When it comes to windows, most homeowners don’t really notice them. We tend to only notice what is on the other side of them. But, as spring approaches, we need to take a close look at all of the windows to ensure they are undamaged by our winter weather. According to the National Safety Council, windows are in important safety feature, but they need to be maintained properly so they can adequately protect your family.
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.
Window Safety Week is in April, but we encourage you to practice window safety year-round. Lives depend on it.
Window Safety Task Force
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 American Architectural Manufacturers Association, the Window & Door Manufacturers Association and the Screen Manufacturers Association in cooperation with the National Association of Home Builders and other organizations, as well as leading manufacturers of windows, doors and screens.
