Improve your product packaging with child-proof features.
In the modern world, there are many dangers hiding in everyday products, especially for small children. This is why we at Flex-Pack believe that child-resistant product packaging is an important part of the packaging industry. Not only does it protect kids from getting sick or hurt, but it also protects you as a company from liability when it comes to dangers associated with your products.
Child-Resistant Product Packaging for Consumers
The most obvious reason for child-resistant product packaging is to protect the consumer. Whether your customers are large businesses or local families, if children could be near a potentially dangerous product at any time, it is important to have the right packaging in place that will restrict the improper use.
We all know that babies and toddlers go through phases where they want to put everything into their mouths. This can be fatal if the wrong product is mishandled. By investing in child-resistant packaging, you can keep your customers and their children safe.
Child Resistant Product Packaging for Manufacturers
Child-resistant product packaging isn’t just a safety feature for the consumer. As a manufacturer, you have to consider the health and safety regulations set forth by the government for your product. If you sell pharmaceuticals, supplements, cleaning solutions, pesticides, or any other merchandise that could be harmful to young children, you are protecting your brand by including child-proof features in your packaging.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission regulates the use of these packaging features and will take action if companies are not abiding by all of the laws in their state or country. Not following these guidelines could restrict your ability to sell in certain areas, and could leave you at risk for legal issues.
There are more than a hundred different design options on the market for child-resistant products, making it easy to create a unique package that satisfies all of the laws and regulations associated with your product. Most child-proof packages use a locking mechanism or closure that requires the user to follow instructions via arrows or written directions to open the container or bag. Sometimes there are two closures that must be turned or pressed at the same time.
