Child-Resistant and Senior-Friendly Package Testing for Household Chemicals

As you prepare to distribute a household chemical, you face an important decision: what kind of packaging should you choose, and which type will best contain and preserve your product? Household chemicals contain aggressive and even deadly ingredients. That’s why it’s critical to your profits, corporate reputation, and the safety of your consumers to find packaging that is compatible with the chemical and safe in a household with young children and pets.

Chemical packaging is held to strict guidelines issued by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Federal Hazardous Substances Act (FHSA). Household cleaning industries are required to label any hazardous household products with cautionary information, including proper storage methods, first-aid measures, and a “Keep Out of Reach of Children” statement.

At Child Related Research, we are well-versed in federal regulations and have over 50 years of experience in child resistant and senior friendly package testing for household chemicals. If you are not compliant with federal regulations, we’ll bring you up to speed, so your company experiences maximum success with customers’ trust safeguarded.

Chemical Package Testing Applications

Child Related Research has tested just about every type of primary chemical packaging out there. No matter what type of potentially harmful chemical product you distribute, we can test it for safety and functionality. We commonly test the containers of:

  • Laundry detergent and fabric softener
  • Bathroom disinfectant
  • Furniture and metal polish
  • Carpet and upholstery cleaner
  • Antibacterial hand soap
  • Bug repellant
  • Shoe polish
  • Wood treatment
  • Kitchen cleaner
  • Cleaning concentrate
  • Ant and Rodenticides
  • And many more

How We Do It: Package Simulation

Before you distribute a chemical, you need to find out how its packaging performs over an extended period of time and in different environments. Once your product reaches the buyer, it needs to withstand opening attempts by young children and be easy for senior adults to access. Some chemicals perform optimally in both scenarios, but others will destroy their packaging under certain conditions and fail the child-resistant test.
