Product Safety: Mechanical Requirements, Stability (Module)

This Course is from a multi-part series. Below is a description of the complete series. Each of the following parts/sessions can be purchased separately at

  • Session 1: Ratings, Labels, Manuals
  • Session 2: Electrical Shock Protection
  • Session 3: Insulation Design w/Creepage & Clearance
  • Session 4: Fire and Flammability
  • Session 5: Mechanical Requirements, Stability
  • Session 6: Risk Analysis
  • Session 7: Thermal Measurements
  • Session 8: Submissions and Approvals


International laws dictate that products meet safety standards with a significant emphasis on Electrical Safety. Machinery, Communications Devices, Information Technology, Measuring Equipment, Medical Devices and many other products have specific safety standards prescribing requirements for various elements associated with safety. Electrical, thermal, fire, mechanical radiation and other hazards are considered for almost every product that is placed on the market.

The webinar series will present details on test and evaluation methods for the more common tests required for international approval. The discussion will address test and evaluation methods along with approaches to incorporate safety control measures into your design. This series offers critical information for product designers, compliance management professionals and testing industry professionals involved with electronic systems development.

This multi-part series of one-hour webinars, presented at regular intervals throughout the calendar year, provides detailed focus on evaluating products, mitigating issues, documentation and understanding the reason for the requirements.

Although the standard provides the basis, this course delves into what and why along with the how. Understanding the evaluation process brings forth items that the designers must consider. Webinar attendees will receive a recording of the presentation and the presentation slides for reference long after the event.

Who will benefit

  • Product and program managers that need to understand the requirements;
  • Compliance engineers responsible for technical safety details supporting the product design;
  • Laboratory managers and test personnel responsible for developing and executing the test/evaluation programs;
  • Auditors and witnesses to gain insight on how tests are tailored for necessary variance from the standard.

The Presenter

Steven G. Ferguson is Executive V.P. at Washington Laboratories, Ltd (WLL) and has been working in EMC, Safety, MIL-STD, Nuclear, Energy and related compliance engineering and test for over 35 years at test laboratories and manufacturers. His work includes designing products, developing procedures, performing tests and advising developers on routes and techniques for attaining product compliance. He has been directly involved with EMC design and compliance evaluation for many systems including several power plants (facilities and equipment qualification), hospitals, presidential aircraft, the Space Shuttle and Hubble Space Telescope. He presents various courses on EMI/EMC compliance including EMC for Nuclear Power Facilities, Architectural Shielding and a hands-on course MIL-STD-461 testing at the WLL facility in Maryland and on-site for multiple government and industrial clients. His work also includes EMC, Environmental and Safety evaluations for commercial, military and medical devices and training of hundreds of personnel on test and evaluation techniques. He has authored several papers on equipment qualification and evaluation techniques with presentations at many conferences. He is a member of the TR-102323 Working Group and supported preparation of Revision 4.
