CPSC POOL SAFELY CAMPAIGN PARTNERS WITH INDUSTRY ON EDUCATION AND OUTREACH
November 9, 2010 – This week, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a strategic partnership with the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) for the agency’s Pool Safely: Simple Steps Save Lives public safety campaign.
As the newest Campaign Safety Partner, APSP will play an important role in helping to reduce the number of drowning, near-drowning, and entrapment incidents each year by working with its members and customers to make compliance with the Virginia Graeme Baker Pool & Spa Safety Act and education priorities.
Starting at the International Pool, Spa, & Patio Expo, APSP will provide Pool Safely materials at industry events, in publications, on industry videos, on its website, and through social media channels, such as Facebook and Twitter. In addition, as APSP develops new safety videos for its industry members, it will incorporate Pool Safely messaging and materials into the production of the videos.
