TradeNet is among the first to achieve ‘Product Safety Aware’ status in the Promotional Products Association International (PPAI) Product Safety Awareness Program in 2015. This means TradeNet has met or exceeded the PPAI product safety training and education requirements.
Maintaining this status is an ongoing effort at TradeNet. The company has demonstrated its commitment to product safety by actively engaging its workforce and adopting a corporate culture prioritizing product safety compliance training and a commitment to continuing education. Three TradeNet managers recently completed certification training as required: Dustin Griffin, Production Manager; Scott Perry, Director of Pre-Production Services; and Steve Hale, Director of Marketing.
“Meeting the evolving product safety compliance expectations of the promotional products industry requires regulatory knowledge and an ongoing commitment at TradeNet,” said Tom Mertz, President and CEO. “We are proud to establish a proactive leadership position in the industry through our commitment to PPAI’s ‘Product Safety Aware’ compliance program. Product Safety Awareness gives us a strong competitive edge and increases the value in the client-supplier relationship. It’s a win-win for both of us.”
PPAI is considered a leader in the development of training and education programs meant to enhance safety programs in the promotional products industry. The Association is the world’s largest and oldest not-for-profit trade association for the $18.5 billion promotional products industry with more than 50 years of professional development and certification.
