Podcasts and videos are a great way to keep up with news and learn about product safety.

Product safety podcasts

In my search for great product safety resources I came across your podcast (The Maze) which I found incredibly helpful in getting me up to speed. I can attest that I have learned a lot from your podcast alone.

Ije D. – USA

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.
