Product Safety...It's Not Just For Suppliers Anymore

09 Jul 2015 4:47 PM | Dana Geiger (Administrator)

It is easy to become overwhelmed by the mere mention of product safety.  PPAI made the bold decision to require any company wanting access to the PPAI marketplace to obtain the Product Safety Aware status indicating that they have a basic understanding of product responsibility obligations -  That's the good news.  The better news is that it's not just for suppliers anymore. 

The Product Safety Awareness Program was designed to foster an industry - wide commitment and a culture where all companies, suppliers and distributors alike, are not only aware of product safety but are also engaged in the discussion. 

PPAI and VAPPA are committed to bringing you the opportunity to gain this education. There are two opportunities available to you this fall to do just that. The PPAI Product Responsibility Summit in Bethesda, MD, is a two-day deep dive into the most compelling product responsibility issues facing out industry. The  VAPPA Product Safety Awareness Training Seminar is a four-hour abridged course that will help distributors distinguish themselves in the marketplace.
