Find out about Product Safety Solutions . . .
On this website we aim to promote consumer product safety and design, in Australia and beyond.
If you’re making or selling consumer products, there can be traps, like recalled and banned products. Or standards that have to be met before you can sell. This site helps guide you through the regulatory maze.
The site provides tips for product designers, makers and sellers on how to achieve usability and the best safety outcomes for all products.
If you’re advising product sellers – as a law firm, compliance professional, trade association or the like – this site will help point you in the right direction to best help your clients.
And for everyone, there’s advice to help manage the risks of everyday things that we all use.
I believe Gail is one of the most knowledgeable and professional product safety people in Australia.
I have known Gail Greatorex for some years, as a Director at the ACCC; as joint members of an active Standards Committee; and subsequently in her own business. Her background and knowledge is broad, her understanding of regulation extensive, and she can balance the needs and expectations of all the parties involved very well. In product safety this balance is essential, from the practical needs of industry to produce and sell practical products to those of the consumers who have high expectations that what they buy will be safe and that Government, manufacturers and retailers all have a strong part in ensuring this happens.
We engaged Gail in relation to advice on the local legislative requirements for Children’s clothing, from a safety and labelling perspective. Gail’s knowledge in this area proved excellent providing us with a fast turnaround and professional advice.
I have worked with Gail on a number of projects both at the ACCC and in her consulting business – Product Safety Solutions. Gail is very reliable and provides a high quality service. I would recommend her to anyone looking for assistance with their product safety program.
