Good product safety is no accident
Managing product safety risk has always been important, but now, with the introduction of the new Australian Consumer Law in January 2011, it has become critical to your business's long term survival. Companies that fail to do so will soon find themselves in the public spotlight for all the wrong reasons. Often brands never recover from the public scorn associated with a serious breach - not to mention the substantial financial penalties these breaches will soon attract!
However there is an up side too! A sound knowledge of the new Australian Consumer Law coupled with a reliable and effective risk management system could yield significant commercial advantages to your business and is likely to have a very positive effect on its bottom line.
While you are getting on with business, your competitor set will be stumbling over repetitive product testing, recalls and certification issues; and of course dealing with the ever present prospect of bad publicity associated with getting it wrong.
To be confident that your company is across the issues and ahead of the game, enrol now in StanCert's product safety training courses.
StanCert and the National Retailers Association (NRA) have partnered to bring you this training. The NRA represents thousands of Australian retail, fast food and service businesses of all sizes ranging from the smallest corner store to the largest retailing groups. More information on the NRA can be found at http://www.nra.net.au/.
Below is some feedback from course participants
Mark Bezzina is the most knowledgeable product safety and compliance advisor I have ever spoken with. He has a wealth of information in the product safety and risk assessment/management areas.
The whole course was very interesting and made the new Australian Consumer Law section on product safety much clearer for me. I’ve already used some of the knowledge I learnt in the following days after returning to work and was able to confidently put information forward to the business knowing that it was correct. I enjoyed the group exercises and meeting other people in the same industry that going forward we can help each other out, ripping apart the toys and clothing was a great way to end the 2nd day as well! Highly recommended and well worth it!”
Helen Schwartz – Merchandise Compliance Team Leader
“Attending the Introduction to Product Safety and Compliance and Intermediate Product Risk Assessment courses with Mark Bezzina was extremely beneficial.· There was a good balance of information (theory) coupled with practical activities which helped enforce what was covered.· Mark’s knowledge on a vast range of subjects was also very helpful.· I really enjoyed the experience and the ability to meet other people in similar roles, the sharing of knowledge was also a great highlight of the two days.· I would definitely recommend that people attend these courses especially with the changes that came into effect on the 1st of January 2011. I look forward to sharing this information within my organisation.”
Rita Hamzey – Product Safety Supervisor
“The StanCert Product Safety training was very informative and provided practical information on how to develop and implement a best practice product safety management system.· The hands on activities allowed me to put the requirements into practice and clearly understand the relevance to our industry.”
