ST. LOUIS, MISSOURI, UNITED STATES, July 5, 2017 / -- A global risk assessment on-line tool, navigating the regulatory world under new national leadership, changing factors in company compliance plans, and safety intervention for human errors…these are among the topics featured at the 6th annual advanced product safety management course at Saint Louis University’s John Cook School of Business.

The 2017 advanced program provides a university certificate to those completing the course. The program is offered on-campus September 25-29, through the university’s Center for Supply Chain Management in cooperation with ADK Information Services, LLC.

The course instructors include 16 national and internationally known business and subject matter experts, product safety leaders, regulators, and social advocates. Each module is designed to explain issues and trends that affect consumer product manufacturers, retailers, and importers subject to regulatory oversight by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). An international module, Mexico’s proposed Consumer Protection Law reform measure, will be discussed by Bernardo Altamirano Rodríguez, former Federal Attorney of PROFECO, which manages consumer product laws in that country. CPSC Commissioner Marietta Robinson will be the guest speaker at the graduation ceremony, and update participants on current agency programs and policies.

Instructors for the course include (partial listing): Attorney Cheryl Falvey, Crowell & Moring LLP, former General Counsel at the CPSC; Gene Rider, risk assessment authority with Exponent and recipient of the 2011 CPSC Chairman’s Commendation Award for contributions to children’s safety; Former CPSC Commissioner David Pittle, nominated to that post for separate terms under both Republican and Democrat presidents; David Callet, attorney, Callet Law; Shelia Millar, attorney, Keller and Heckman LLP, discussing regulatory requirements for industry beyond those of the CPSC; and Kenneth Boyce, Principal Engineer Director, UL LLC, who will discuss lithium-ion batteries as a safety issue affecting products across industries.

Individuals attending this course come from industry and retailing segments where they hold product safety positions related to safety and reliability engineering, quality, risk assessment, compliance, product integrity, the sciences, and operations. Individuals applying for the course should have 5 years of experience in product safety or have graduated from a Saint Louis University general product safety management course.

“Most of us come from engineering, production, the supply chain, quality or legal backgrounds – and need training to help our companies make the right decisions regarding product and consumer risk, “ according to Dave Marlow, Director, Product Integrity/Government Affairs, Brunswick Corporation and a graduate of the program. “That’s why SLU’s Product Safety Management program is so important.”
