Please join us for our 2019 Industry Roundtable discussions! All are welcome. What is an industry roundtable you ask? An informal hour for industry members (retailers, educators, manufacturers, etc) to come together and discuss industry issues and network/brainstorm. Our facilitator Angelique Geehan is very good at keeping conversation going with interesting topic suggestions but we have found that organic conversation occurs quite easily and often in surprisingly useful directions.

Roundtables will be virtual, on the 3rd or 4th Tuesday of the month from 12-1pm EST. Recordings of the calls will not be made available but we will aim to provide a brief overview of things discussed afterwards.

November Topic:

Join us to discuss carrier industry incident data from the CPSC (slings, soft carriers, frame carriers) from 2017-2019. Incident data is collected by regulators and shows reported incidents, accidents, injuries and deaths. Looking at current incident data as it becomes available is a great task to work into your compliance plan because it helps you see a)product failure trends b)common misuse and accidents and c)can highlight new risks that might need to be addressed either through product design or through the product safety standards.

We will walk through the current data with plenty of time for discussion and questions. Current incident data can be found here, and will also be shared on-screen during the roundtable call.
