Lightning Labels Supports Child Safety and Protection Month

Do kids' products have the required safety labeling?

November is a great month to consider whether products are safely labeled, or to take warning labels from adequate to excellent

November is Child Safety and Protection Month. While parents and guardians of young children can spend this month making sure they've given kids a safe environment to live in, the companies that make products for children have a part to play as well.

These businesses can use Child Safety and Protection Month as a reminder to ensure their items have adequate child safety labels. Appropriate labeling for these products isn't just a good idea - it's the law.

A Time to Check Regulations
Children's labeling requirements are set by the federal government. The Consumer Product Safety Commission treats all consumer items meant primarily to be used by individuals 12 and under as a children's product. These goods are subject to a special set of rules, and brands should take the time to ensure they are in compliance with all relevant rules.

The rules apply to all items that could reasonably be expected to be used by children - simply labeling a product to say "not for children" isn't enough to make it exempt.

When businesses make sure their children's products are all labeled in line with industry requirements, they can focus on reaching out to their customers with the message of Child Safety Protection Month. Safety promotion is a good approach for companies to take with their audiences, as keeping kids out of harm's way will surely be one of consumers' product selection priorities.

"November is a great month to consider whether products are safely labeled, or to take warning labels from adequate to excellent," said Lightning Labels Director of Business Development AnneMarie Campbell. "We at Lightning Labels are happy to help companies succeed by providing the right stickers and labels for the task."

Using the Right Labels
Child safety stickers and labels should be tough enough to stand up to strenuous use. The important safety information and use directions on these labels should stay visible long-term. Tough labels that stand up to the elements are available from providers such as Lightning Labels. Buyers are able to select from a variety of different materials and finishes.

Complying with regulations is vital for companies' continued credibility and success. Combine this with the underlying goal of ensuring products are safe for young people to use, and it's clear how important child safety labels are. Child Safety and Protection Month is a great time to update these packaging elements.
