Themes….

ICPHSO25thAnniversaryFinal

Have you wondered why ICPHSO uses a theme for each of our three product safety conferences, and how they fit into our planning and implementation of these conferences?    This thought came to me recently as we announced the theme for our 2019 Annual Meeting and Training Symposium being held February 25-28, 2019, in Washington, D.C..  Lets take a look at the themes recently announced:

2018 Northwest Regional Product Safety Workshop, Seattle, Washington : “Product Safety in the Information Age:  Employing Better Data for Better Understanding and Solutions”

2018 International Symposium, Brussels, Belgium: “Alignment and Inclusion in a Divergent World”

2019 Annual Meeting and Training Symposium, Washington, D.C. “United for Safety”

Each of these themes were chosen  so we could focus on an area of interest to our broad stakeholder base.

For Seattle, we wanted to tap into technology issues recognizing a number of our stakeholders in the Northwestern United States and Canada focus on technology in their design and distribution of products, as well as data collection.  This seemed like a natural area for us to focus on in this region of the country.

For Brussels, we wanted to recognize our stakeholders efforts to encourage discussion of global alignment of product safety issues, but at the same time recognize who ICPHSO represents and how we want to continue to ensure we represent all stakeholders and bring their often opposite points of view to the forefront at each of our conferences.

For Washington, D.C., we went for the simple theme of recognizing what ICPHSO’s stakeholders believe and want to achieve. While Washington may not always be in agreement, ICPHSO provides the platform for health and safety professionals to come together to learn from each other, be trained in areas that may not be familiar to all and to address emerging safety issues that might not otherwise be discussed with regulators and others.

For each of our conferences we ask that the proposals you submit relate to the announced theme, although you shouldn’t necessarily feel constrained by that theme.  Use it as a guideline for your proposals and we hope when you do submit a proposal that you recognize what we are trying to achieve and relate the proposal as best you can.

Here’s some upcoming dates to keep you informed:

June 19, 2018 – Our one day Northwest Regional Workshop is almost here.  If you plan on attending, register on line as soon as possible so we can get you into the Amazon Meeting Center as quickly as possible.  Those who are pre-registered this week shouldn’t experience any delays in entry.  We will accept registration submission on line until June 19th.

June 29, 2018 – Deadline for submission of proposals for the 2018 International Symposium in Brussels, Belgium, November 12-13, 2018.  Submit your proposal today and be a part of the global safety community meeting in Brussels during the European Commission’s International Product Safety Week.  Registration and sponsorship information will be announced in the near future.

2019 Annual Symposium, Washington, D.C. – The theme “United for Safety” has been selected and the Call For Presentations will be announced soon.  Check the ICPHSO website for further updates on proposal submissions and deadlines for the Annual Symposium.

Looking forward to seeing you in Seattle!

Regards,

Marc

ICPHSO Northwest Regional Workshop Agenda Set

The 2018 ICPHSO Northwest Regional Training Workshop Planning Committee has come up with six compelling training panels to be presented on June 19, 2018, at the Amazon Center in Seattle, Washington.  Panel speakers and additional details are being finalized and will be posted when available.  The panels include topics in program areas that include: Risk Assessment; Emerging Issues; Regulatory Compliance and Recall Effectiveness; Supply Chain; IoT and Import Targeting.  We are also pleased that CPSC Acting Chairman Ann Marie Buerkle will be delivering our luncheon keynote presentation.

More than 20 proposals were submitted, and while it was difficult to limit our selections, the panels will be most compelling and of interest to our broad array of stakeholders.  In addition to a welcome reception the evening before the workshop, there will be a port tour of Seattle conducted by representatives from CPSC and CBP.  Limited space is available and we will be notifying those who registered and indicated an interest in participating in the tour shortly.  Registration remains open, hotel rooms are limited and sponsorships are still available,  With less than 7 weeks to go, act now to be part of the conversation.

At the conclusion of the workshop, ICPHSO will host an “Information and Inclusion” Reception for all attendees, reinforcing the mission and vision of ICPHSO to provide a neutral forum for all product safety stakeholders to learn, network and share information.  We hope you can stay and join us.

Thanks to the following companies and organizations who are sponsors for the workshop.  We have additional space left as well as promotional items if you are interested in further supporting ICPHSO.  Sponsorships help keep the cost down for our attendees and allows us to provide funding for people and organizations that might  not otherwise be able to participate in our safety conferences so all voices can be heard.
