Dorel Juvenile Group is the first manufacturer to become the lead agency of an official Safe Kids Chapter. Through this Chapter, we are working together with local community organizations and businesses to provide a reliable, expert child safety resource for local families.
"As the leading manufacturer of child safety products, protecting children is our main priority," said Dave Taylor, President and CEO of Dorel Juvenile Group. "In addition to providing the safest products, we believe education is a critical element to ensuring our children avoid unintentional injury. With the opening of this Chapter, we're working with local organizations and businesses to provide vital resources to help protect the children of local families."
Dorel Juvenile Group, together with local community organizations and businesses, will provide educational tools, discounted safety gear, and annual training sessions on childhood injury prevention to the local community.
"Safe Kids is a network of organizations working to prevent unintentional childhood injury, the leading cause of death and disability for children. We commend Dorel and its community partners for their leadership in helping children in the Columbus, Indiana area to grow up safe, healthy and injury free."– Kate Carr, President and CEO of Safe Kids Worldwide

Building on its commitment to child safety, DJG opened the Dorel Technical Center Car Seat Inspection Station in April 2011, a free, permanent service families can utilize to ensure their car seats are properly installed. DJG also takes safety education on the road, deploying its team of Child Passenger Safety Technicians across the country to ensure car seats are properly installed and provide parents and caregivers with tips and advice for child passenger safety.
