an up-to-date look at approaches for a company to develop a system for making safe products
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) December 14, 2011
A new product safety program designed for manufacturers of consumer products such as sleep products, home furnishing and furniture, children’s products, and other consumer goods has been developed at the Saint Louis University Center for Supply Chain Management Studies.
The course is a short, information packed workshop that offers product safety, risk managers, and product design and reliability engineers an up-to-date look at product safety issues, trends, and approaches for a company to develop a system for making safe products. It takes place February 21 and 22 on the campus of the university. Those completing the course will receive a Certificate in Product Safety Analysis.
Saint Louis University is known globally for its Certificate in Product Safety Management course that offers instruction on how to design, develop, and maintain a system for producing safe, compliant products. The new industry course came about based on interest expressed by individuals and associations in a shorter, more concentrated course. The International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) was a leader in bringing the concept for industry training to Saint Louis University.
The workshop will focus on risk assessment, product hazard analysis, and safe engineering. Participants will also get insight into current regulatory and compliance issues through instruction by lawyers on current consumer product safety laws. The workshop is being developed in cooperation with ADK Information Services, a product safety information and education development firm. The tuition for the course is $1,250.
The course is designed for product safety personnel, product safety and design engineers, quality assurance and testing managers, quality specialists, risk managers, and import/export compliance managers.

“We understand how to offer product safety training to professionals. With the growing interest by whole industries in product safety education, it seems that the time is right for an industry/university collaborative,” according to Dr. Ik-Whan Kwon, director of the Center for Supply Chain Management Studies at Saint Louis University.
