Back to School Backpack Safety

- Wednesday, August 17, 2022

As we all fall into new routines this month, we want to share some best practices to prevent backpack-related injuries as your kids go back to school.


In 2016, over 6,300 kids had backpack-related injuries severe enough to receive Emergency Room treatment.

It is estimated that 14,000 children are treated for backpack-related injuries every year.

In a recent study, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission found that 75% of children surveyed between the ages of 8 to 12 years complained of back pain related to their backpacks.
