Do Not Transgress Packaging Regulations
Without even knowing it, you could just be dealing in dangerous goods. But then again, if you are astute in the way you conduct your business affairs, you should already know this much by now. You should already know full well whether your goods to be packaged for your markets are dangerous or not. No doubt, and it would be obvious, if you were a manufacturer of bullets for firearms, you would have already taken the necessary precautions in terms of the regulations, laws and industry standards laid down for the purposeful practice of dangerous goods packaging.
But so too is there every subtle possibility that there are elements and/or materials that go into your manufacturing and/or processing work that could be deemed dangerous to your industry and, more importantly, to the markets that you have elected to serve. Goods may well be safe for you and your staff in the sense that you know what is coming. But for the unwitting public out there, it is a completely and critically different matter.
Part of the dangerous goods packaging procedures entails being able to state quite clearly the dangers involved when handling or opening or using a particular package. But there is also this concern. It is also often the case that given warnings are just far too small for the public to take note of. The argument goes that anything larger is going to tarnish the branding of a product and diminish its marketing effectiveness.
Whether that be the case for a particular business, the fact remains that there are likely laws in place that need to be adhered to. And any affected business could land itself in serious trouble should it be caught red-handed in not handling their dangerous goods packaging in the stipulated manner.
