The child-safe choice
With creative solutions abound in the packaging industry, manufacturers are able to address all manner of consumer and regulatory concerns, and health and safety is no exception. There's regular 'safe packaging', however, and then there's child-safe packaging: a sector with its very own demands and challenges. Emma-Jane Batey speaks to Child-Safe Packaging Group's Stephen Wilkins and Ecobliss's Marc Linssen about the current state of child-safe packaging formats, including Ecobliss's Locked4Kids carton for pharma products.
Children are constantly learning: hardly a day goes by that they don't discover how to do something they couldn't do yesterday. Whether that's standing up in their cot or getting perilously close to opening the cupboard under the kitchen sink, each new discovery comes with its very own list of associated risks, which makes keeping children safe a full-time mission.
