Comprising the American Architectural Manufacturers Association (AAMA), the Window and Door Manufacturers Association and the Screen Manufacturers Association, in cooperation with the National Association of Home Builders, the WSTF was established in 1997 to heighten the awareness of what parents and caregivers should do to help keep their homes and families safer from the risks of accidental falls.

Griffin has worked for Roto Frank since 2000 and is their representative for AAMA, the American Society for Testing and Materials International and the National Safety Council.

“I’m pleased to be representing Roto Frank of America on the Window Safety Task Force,” says Griffin. “The task force provides important information on how effective window safety practices and hardware can help significantly reduce the number of window-fall-related injuries, especially among children.”
