Join Susan DeRagon for this session, where she will share information from the International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization’s 2019 annual meeting and training symposium. This year’s conference included tutorials on social media and consumer product misuse as well as concerns over product safety and privacy in an interconnected world. Some of the breakout sessions included topics such as mitigation strategies related to foreign body hazards and proactive safety engineering. The plenary topics of the sessions included ensuring the safety of products sold online and evolving approaches for innovation and technology. The annual CPSC day included updates on the impact of the new makeup of the Commission and some of the commissioners’ policy views regarding education campaigns, voluntary vs. mandatory standards and a variety of other issues that come before the Commission. This session qualifies as an "elective" under the Product Safety Aware Program.
