EtQ Interviewed on Quality Digest Live; Presents Webinar on Risk

FARMINGDALE, NY (10-18-12): EtQ, a leading provider of Quality Management, EHS, and Compliance Software, recently teamed up with Quality Digest for an interview and a webinar. The interview took place on Quality Digest Live and featured EtQ's Tim Lozier who spoke about the importance of Risk in Quality and Compliance initiatives.

The interview was followed up with a webinar hosted by Quality Digest, "Risk Management 2.0: The Expanding Role of Risk Mitigation in Industries."

This webinar was led by EtQ's Chief Technology Officer, Morgan Palmer. It showed how risk can be applied to processes as well as products, described how risk mitigation is more than a post-production event, and discussed how Risk can be applied in design, change, and beyond.

"Quality and Compliance systems often use Risk as a reactive measure based on post-market feedback," stated Palmer. "We are now experiencing a shift in this frame of thought, and there is a growing trend to create a holistic approach to Risk Management. EtQ's recent collaboration with Quality Digest for the interview and webinar is a testament to the growing interest and need for Risk Management—Risk is everywhere and Risk Management is a necessity, regardless of industry."
