Intertek Conducts 6-part Global Online Product Quality & Safety Training Series

April 04, 2019

Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, is pleased to offer a six-part training webinar series designed to address essential safety concepts and provide valuable insights into managing and mitigating consumer product risks before and after incidents occur.  

Demand for ‘safe’ and compliant products is increasing from both regulators and consumers; as a result, companies want to strengthen their product safety and quality management programs. However, assessing hazardous products can be challenging; it is the responsibility of those involved in the production of products to ensure that all potential hazards are considered during testing. For innovative companies that don’t have standardized methods, the process can be even more daunting and complex. 

Registration gives you access to all 6 webinars in the series. A group discount can be utilized when purchasing 5 or more tickets for the same company.

Cost: $650.00 USD per ticket
