Toy Safety Workshop (Part 2): Identifying Hazards and Minimising your Risk
Course detail

This course will take you through process of carrying out a Safety Assessment and will help you recognise and address potential hazards before your product is placed on the market. 

In a workshop situation, we take a step-by-step approach to completing Safety Assessments on samples of products that are representative of popular children's formats.  Using foreseeable use as insight we determine how children will interact with your products in both intended and foreseeable ways.  Understanding the interaction between the child and the product, will enable you to identify potential physical hazards that may affect the safety of the product.

We will also help you develop a good understanding of the latest chemical requirements and how to manage testing costs effectively without compromising the safety of the product.
