How does Exponent help manufacturers meet stringent safety standards and navigate legal and regulatory concerns for consumer products?
Exponent scientists and engineers draw on decades of experience to help clients achieve thermal and chemical safety and advise on regulatory requirements for a variety of consumer products from appliances, apparel, and health and beauty products, to furniture, toys, and recreational equipment.
We assess potential hazards associated with the use and misuse of a wide variety of consumer products.
Exponent provides the technical expertise and regulatory support needed to help minimize fire, explosion, burn injuries, and toxic exposure risks for all types of consumer products. We routinely help product manufacturers address complex questions regarding design, mitigating risks for fire, burns, and scalds. Our multidisciplinary approach ensures that we're not just looking at challenges directly associated with thermal issues, but also consider human factors' issues, such as age appropriateness for usage, and human health issues, like lead and phthalate exposure.
For more than half a century, we've helped clients understand product failures, and by applying past lessons, we can help you address safety challenges at every stage of the consumer product lifecycle, including development, user testing, application of standards, and submission of regulatory approvals.
