Product safety podcasts

These podcasts delve deep into a range of topics on consumer product safety, with Gail Greatorex interviewing specialists within the field.

If you are a manufacturer, importer, wholesaler or retailer, then product safety is part and parcel of your business success. Understanding the topic may help you avoid the cost involved in product recalls, supplying unsafe products or services that may actually harm consumers, fines or damage to your reputation.

Gail Greatorex talks with Tim Wain, who’s had a long association with product safety in the infant and children’s product field. Tim now runs Australia’s Pregnancy Babies and Children’s Expo.

In the first part, Tim talks about how the Expo provides both an avenue to educate parents on product safety, and a means to learn about consumer behaviour patterns at a pivotal time in their lives.

In the latter part, Tim and Gail talk about suppliers’ attitude to product safety and whether their first response is still to blame users when injuries happen.
