How to avoid this fact?


The most significant issue is parents’ responsibility. When someone at home is taking any sort of drug, it ought to be protected from child’s reach. The first way is to hide it on some shelf. Yet even the finest method can be underwhelming. Sometimes children are more clever than we think. Fortunately, pharmaceutical packaging industry cares about kids’ safety. Child-resistant packaging is used in the case of some drugs. There are formal regulations attributed to the production of this kind of packages. The main goal is to forestall the possibility of opening. The medicines are closed in a container with an appropriate screw cap. Often the method of opening is shown on the cup. Some force is required to get inside it. There is a little possibility that a five years old daughter will be able to open it. This is not the one possible solution – for example Lock4Kids is a system, in which blisters are closed in the plastic tray and carton box. The box has to be squeezed properly in order to get the blister. Both palms are needed here, kids are not able to do it properly.




Pharmaceutical packaging producers prepare solutions that help in protecting children from precarious taking of drug. It does not mean that medicines can lie anywhere. They ought to be hidden from kids – it is the most important issue.
