Języki publikacji
The problem of product life as an important factor of toys safe use is considered. Main sources of hazards and their adverse effect to children health are characterized. The results of unwanted events associated with improper toy design and with its quality of manufacture as well as with use of inappropriate materials for toys production are discussed. Necessity of using the laboratory testing methods based on ageing process to predict changes in toys parameters during their use are pointed out. Features and criteria for assessment of toys life in the light of formal and legal requirements are specified. Considering experience of other scientists, presented in scientific publications as well as the results of the author studies, the innovative method for assessment of life of toys made of polymers is suggested.(original abstract)
