Breakout #02: Exploration of Foreign Body Hazards, Mitigation Strategies, Manufacturing and Quality Controls (repeating)
Small part release continues to be a leading cause of recalls and consumer injury. The diverse backgrounds of the panelists will first expose the hazards of different types of small parts and foreign bodies via medical expert discussion, then offer practical solutions from a safety consulting lab and manufacturer perspective. By understanding the hazards, foreseeable uses, and biomechanics, panelists will continue to divulge key information to mitigate potential hazards through design direction and manufacturing process controls.

Breakout #09: Think Like a Consumer: Proactive Safety Engineering (repeating)
This interactive panel will discuss how to integrate safety into the design and manufacturing process. This includes going beyond safety standards, especially when standards aren’t keeping up with new technology or don’t exist for a product and involves understanding consumer behavior, being able to predict consumer use patterns, and tools to design solutions to hazards that don't themselves become a hazard. The panel will discuss scenarios, highlighting best practices and strategies for anticipating safety issues more effectively in design.
