Physical Hazard Assessment
When assessing products for risk factors and safety, Intertek observes and identifies the potential for physical hazards using virtual and physical models that accurately simulate the body.
These models provide physically accurate representations of children and adults, developed from human anatomy studies, injury data analysis and human development research. Physical and virtual models help assess the interaction of product characteristics and people.
Using safety criteria, specialized gauges and digital simulations to effectively diagnose and demonstrate hazardous product characteristics, Intertek can simulate exactly what will happen if a person comes into contact with a hazardous product.
Models developed by Intertek include:
