Preventing Product Liability Lawsuits and Recalls - New Product Development


Instructor: Randall Goodden
Product ID: 704780

  • Duration: 60 Min
The largest cause of recalls which will normally lead to product liability lawsuits is “Defects in Design.” The product’s design specification was defective right from the start, which wasn’t caught or handled properly, and then manufacturing management made sure all the products were manufactured per that [defective] specification. This training program will briefly cover all the procedures that need to be in place and followed during new product development.

Why Should You Attend:

It has become apparent that in today’s marketplace, far too many corporate management teams are focused almost solely on increasing sales—and of course profits—and lastly, if at all, assuring their products are safe and reliable, although they think this is being handled and under control. To further compound the situation, they are also making false assumptions that their employees know what to do with regard to preventing product recalls and product liability lawsuits and are ahead of the curve. As a result, we are faced with ever-growing upward trends in product recall statistics, record-breaking product liability lawsuit verdicts, and a spike in bankruptcies.

It really doesn’t matter if you’re a $5 billion manufacturing company or do $50 million in annual sales; whether you manufacture consumer products, automotive, medical, industrial, or commercial products; or whether you have a legal department or don’t have one—corporations are missing the mark across the board.

This webcast will be very enlightening and educational to members of the management team and will begin the process of pointing manufacturing corporations in the right direction of preventing related problems and becoming more profitable.

Topic Background:

Every year in the U.S. there are over 80,000 product liability lawsuits, and thousands of product recalls. And at the same time, 90% of manufacturing executives surveyed felt their companies and management teams were “Ahead of the curve in delivering safe and reliable products,” when all the statistical trends show just the opposite. In addition, in the last few years we seen some of the highest fines handed out by government agencies because the corporations mishandled product safety issues, and the juries handed out the largest awards to plaintiffs in over a decade.
