This advanced toy safety course is a one-day workshop that focuses on the Safety Assessment process
Aimed at experienced production and other publishing staff who are responsible for ensuring their products are safe and compliant.
Performing a Safety Assessment is a key requirement under the European Toy Safety Directive but can be a rather daunting prospect. A key business tool, a proper Safety Assessment process helps identify hazards early and helps businesses take appropriate action to produce better, safer products, avoid expensive recalls and protect their brand.
Building on our introductory level course Understanding Toy Safety, this advanced toy safety course will help you put your knowledge into practice by giving you the skills and confidence to carry out formal Safety Assessments on your products. The course is suited to those with a basic understanding of European Safety legislation who wish to advance their skills in this area.
Using representative samples of popular children’s formats, we take a step-by-step approach to completing Safety Assessments and the other documentation that makes up the Technical File. Using foreseeable use as insight, we determine how children will interact with your products in both intended and foreseeable ways, show you how to address the potential hazards, and understand and manage your risk. The workshop format encourages the sharing of ideas and allows everyone to participate.
