Why worry about product safety?

The engineering changes required to make a product safe are usually not expensive to introduce during the design process, but the costs can skyrocket as the product gets closer to the market (redesign, lost opportunity, etc). Many times, safety is given little consideration during the early phases of product development. This is unfortunate due to many of the design flaws found at later audits. Design changes cost companies time and money, so it is smarter to purchase the needed equipment in advance. Let ED&D help save you the headache related to these issues, so your product will launch on time, every time.
