A three year old boy died when a dining room chair he was sitting on fell backward, triggering bleeding along his spinal cord. Approaches utilized in the danger analysis include: accident reconstruction, safety literature review, safety standards research and testing, accident statistics survey, and evaluation of alternative dinette chair designs. The primary goal of this investigation is to make dinette chair designers, retailers, and users more aware of the tip over danger and to identify design alternatives to help reduce the number of these types of injuries.
