What is the CPSC?
The Consumer Product Safety Commission was founded in 1972 to reduce injuries and deaths from products. They do this by informing consumers through the media, government, and private organizations. They are basically responsible for keeping the public safe from potentially harmful products.
Why was the CPSC formed?
They were formed, per their website, to "protect the public against unreasonable risks of injuries and deaths associated with consumer products."
This video is an example of the CPSC recalling products that can be dangerous to the public.
Recall Roundup: June 9, 2015
The most recent product recall (as of November 30th) is a type of Ski-Doo snowmobile. The fuel hose can easily be damaged and cause leaks, resulting in a possible fire.
The CPSC, out of the choices of services/products, employees, enviroment, and business, best fits into services/products. This is because the company works specifically with products, as it recalls ones that are unsafe. They are constantly working hard to keep the public safe.
