In any country, it is paramount to ensure that products are safe for consumers to use and/or ingest. In each region, a set of laws guides the production and distribution of goods. In each country, a regulatory framework is in place to regulate businesses that provide goods to clients.   Each business is obligated to ensure that its products are both safe and accessible. Safety is of utmost importance as any breach may lead to criminal prosecution, eventually leading a company to withdraw its product from the shelves.   Taking shortcuts when it comes to safety, is a risk and limits access to a product that consumers might rely on. So, how can ...

It's frustrating, so what is one to do? I've found that when I run into this problem and I need to push through it I start a serious of actions that eventually give me the spark I need to being in the development of new ideas. I have also found that this is usually the time that I generate my best work by pushing through the mental block. I know in speaking with other colleagues I'm not the only one who goes through this, so I wanted to pull together the actions that I implement that help ...
