WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Home Safety Council announced OSRAM SYLVANIA as a winner of the organization's 2008 Commendation Award for Product Innovation for its Power Failure Light. Product manufacturers from a variety of industries including home improvement and fire safety were among the five organizations that received the award in acknowledgment of their exceptional contributions to improving consumer home safety.

According to the Home Safety Council-commissioned study, The State of Home Safety in America™, home injuries cause an average of nearly 20,000 deaths and 21 million medical visits each year. The Home Safety Council's Commendation Award for Product Innovation was established in 2004 to recognize manufacturers for their contributions to reducing home injury risks by developing innovative products that aim to protect consumers from home injury.

"Manufacturers continue to be vital partners in the Home Safety Council's constant effort to reduce the toll of home injuries in America," said Home Safety Council president Meri-K Appy. "SYLVANIA represents a wide range of home safety product innovations and we commend the company's strong commitment to the health and safety of consumers."

The Power Failure light features three functions in one. It offers bright energy efficient LED light during power failures and automatically comes on when it senses a loss of power. It also functions as a night light with an automatic sensor and light indicator. For mobile usage, the Power Failure Light turns into a bright LED flashlight. The Power Failure Light never needs a bulb replacement, as it has built in rechargeable batteries. Whether in your kitchen, the bedroom, garage or hallway, the Power Failure Light is always charging while plugged in so you will never be left in the dark.

"We are honored to receive the Home Safety Council's Commendation Award recognizing the innovation of the Power Failure Light as well as our corporate commitment to ensuring the health, safety and satisfaction of our customers," said Constance Pineault, product marketing manager, OSRAM SYLVANIA "Nothing brings more pride to our organization than knowing that the products we develop can help protect consumers with their safety features."
