If used correctly, the consumer products purchased by residents of Tracadie-Sheila should not cause them to sustain physical harm. Many consumer products include clearly-worded safety warnings, labels, or instructions to ensure that the people who purchase them will not be unexpectedly injured. Most products are designed, manufactured, and made available for sale in a manner intended to reduce the risk of harm to human health.
This is because of the rigorous, nationwide safety protocols to which manufacturing companies must adhere. In fact, all businesses that manufacture, import, sell, advertise, package, label, and test non-commercial consumer products are beholden to the safety protocols outlined in the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act (CCPSA).
The safety measures detailed in the CCPSA are designed to protect consumers from undue harm. By adhering to national safety measures, businesses and manufacturers help keep consumers across the country safe. If a manufacturer neglects their responsibilities, fatal errors can occur. If defective, potentially dangerous products are made available for sale to the public, lives can be lost as a result, and unsuspecting consumers can sustain serious injuries. When this happens, the manufacturers responsible could be considered negligent.
In product liability claims, negligence is often linked to:
- A product’s defective design
- Negligent manufacturing of the product
- Failure to warn consumers of the risks associated with the product’s use
- Improper testing of the product’s safety
- And more
Additionally, when product manufacturers learn that defective or otherwise hazardous products were made available for sale, they have a duty to inform Health Canada so that a nationwide recall can be initiated. If a product manufacturer neglects to inform the proper authorities upon learning of dangerous hazards associated with their product’s use, they could be considered negligent.
Negligent manufacturers whose wrongful conduct caused an unsuspecting consumer to sustain injuries may be liable for damages resulting from their injuries.
