A record-breaking 357 attendees gathered in Des Moines, Iowa last week to share business strategies that focus on safety. AEM’s Product Safety & Compliance Seminar delivers industry focused education on product design, standard and regulation compliance, and hazard communication processes, and spreads the message that product safety adds value.

“It’s a really good learning experience,” said Jim Waldron of Skyjack Inc. “I just wish there were three of me so I could attend the three different education tracks.”

Several networking opportunities were available over the course of the three-day seminar, including a new event just for women in product safety. Dozens of women in all stages of their career came together to share experiences, build relationships and plan for future events. The industry assembled seminar fosters an environment of open communication and peer-to-peer learning about product safety challenges and innovations.

“The networking is fantastic, and is probably the thing I look forward to the most,” said Karen Hensley of Argos Multilingual. “You really get a chance to meet different people from different companies and learn what their challenges are, what their solutions are and take them home and apply them.”

The seminar is developed by a planning committee of product safety professionals from AEM member companies. It is the only place for the industry to come together and share best practices among companies of all sizes. All attendees and presenters have one goal in mind: preparing today to protect the end-users of tomorrow.
