The Consumer Product Safety Commission has chosen Safety Institute Executive Director Lewis Howe to serve as a panelist during the agency’s upcoming national summit on all-terrain vehicle safety.
Mr. Howe will be part of a panel discussing legislation and policy as a means of promoting safety on ATVs. Howe was the CDC’s core injury prevention grantee in 2010 when Massachusetts enacted Sean’s Law, which bans children under the age of 14 from operating or riding on ATVs in that state.
The two-day summit, to be held October 11 and 12 at CPSC headquarters in Bethesda, MD, will focus on the theme of “Keeping Families Safe on ATVs” and will also feature TSI Survivors Network partners from the Concerned Families for ATV Safety, as well as Katie Kearney of Plymouth, MA, mother of Sean Kearney, for whom the Massachusetts ATV Safety Law is named.
