Safe Label and Package Design

A Live Facilitated Virtual Workshop for Health Care Professionals

September 20, 2024



The label and package are the first points of interaction between a health product and a potential user. It is important that product labels and packages are designed with the user in mind and with consideration of the environment in which the product will be used. Guides have been developed to support manufacturers in the design of labels and packages that are clear and effective, and also to support proper identification of products to minimize the risk of errors causing harm.


Safe Label and Package Design workshop will teach participants about user-identified issues and about safety principles pertinent to manufacturers’ health product labels and packages. Participants will learn how these principles can be applied and have the opportunity to review and analyze product label and package examples. Participants are encouraged to submit pictures of 1 or 2 product labels or packages for discussion at the workshop.

Audience: Group Purchasing Managers, Group Purchasing Buyers, Pharmacy Buyers or Purchasing Technicians, Dispensing/Distribution Technicians and Pharmacists, Health Product Label and Package Designers, Quality Assurance Managers, and other healthcare professionals seeking to enhance their knowledge and skills about safe labels and packages of health products.

Workshop Level: Introductory to intermediate
