PRLog - Nov. 27, 2012 - St. Louis, MO -- Companies that are required to meet consumer product safety laws and standards in the United States have a new avenue to help them build safer products: university-level product safety education courses.  Taught at Saint Louis University’s John Cook School of Business, the next course is a 2-day Product Risk Management workshop scheduled for February 4 & 5 that will teach safety professionals how to conduct product risk assessments using the most current techniques in hazard analysis.

Companies have been sending their managers to product safety courses at the university for the past 4 years.  Saint Louis University’s product safety courses are the first such management courses offered at the university-level by a top 100 accredited university in the United States. The program is offered through the school’s Center for Supply Chain Management Studies, which was recognized in 2012 for contributions to the product safety field by the Chairman of the U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Inez Tenenbaum.

Intended for technical staff involved in making safety decisions, safety engineers, product developers, and quality assurance personnel, graduates of the February course earn a Saint Louis University Certificate in Risk Assessment. A course description and registration are available at www.adksafetyinfo.com, or by calling the Center for Supply Chain Management Studies at 314-977-3617.

Large global brand corporations, along with medium and small companies, have found the courses to be valuable in showing employees how product safety systems fit into a company’s new product development process. By building safer products companies reduce the risk that they will be among manufacturers or retailers required to recall product units due to the unreasonable risks of injury to consumers. Instructors for the course are recognized authorities in the product safety field working under the guidance of ADK Information Services, LLC the University’s product safety adviser.

The Product Risk Assessment course  includes over 2 hours of hands-on training using risk assessment tools and processes. Students will examine foreseeable use of products that could lead to injury, and focus on the different forms of hazard that can be identified in products such as asphyxiation, physical/mechanical hazards, thermal effects and electrical hazards, and chemical hazards.
