DSFederal Redesigns SaferProducts.Gov to Enhance Consumer Safety


    Consumers need access to reliable product safety information on everything from their coffee makers to their power drills. They also need a way to let the government know if

    these products are unsafe.


    In September, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) awarded DSFederal a contract to redesign SaferProducts.gov, a public information resource and data collection tool that addresses those needs with the goal of reducing the number of consumer product incidents nationwide.


    CPSC was established in 1972 to protect consumers from products that pose unreasonable risks of injury or death. CPSC was then mandated by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) in 2008 to provide a searchable database for incident reports and a mechanism for collecting this information from the public.


    As part of the redesign, DSFederal will enhance the site’s usability and mobile compatibility, and streamline the incident-reporting tool to improve efficiency. The company’s recent redesign of the highly successful CPSC Regulatory Robot, an interactive online tool that gives users quick access to information on product safety certification requirements, provides DSFederal with intimate knowledge of the agency’s mission and ensures it will deliver responsive web design and development.


    “We are thrilled and honored to have this opportunity to work with CPSC to improve the saferproducts.gov website to better protect Americans and their families,” said Project Manager John Yu. “This project aligns with our track record of providing digital services that further our clients’ critical health and safety missions.”
