Packaging Standards

Back to all Motions

2004 Retired Members' Conference
14 June 2004

Conference calls upon the National Executive Council to make representation to the appropriate organisation responsible for packaging standards, with a view to easing the opening of packages, jars and bottles for older people. Considerable difficulties are experienced in opening packages, jars and bottles, especially when suffering with fingers and hands crippled with arthritis/rheumatism and so on. Stress, pain and injury are often the outcome of this predicament.
