Consumer Product Safety Commission
This report, prepared for the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) of Washington, D.C., outlines our approach to investigating the increase in injuries related to inflatable amusement rides. Using data from surveys, interviews, injury databases, archival research, and product testing, we completed three goals: We developed a five category system to classify inflatable amusement rides; determined ways the CPSC and other involved parties can improve the safety of inflatable rides; and recommended how future CPSC investigations can be handled.
