Our Services

Uniquely suited to assist global pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and healthcare technology companies in evaluating the safety of their products

Contact Us

The Medication Safety Board is dedicated to serving the pharmaceutical industry around the world to ensure medication safety through our design and evaluation processes for packaging and labeling. We provide services that span a product’s lifecycle, from pre-marketing assessments at an early phase of development through post-marketing evaluations and line extensions.

Using Failure Mode and Effects Analysis (FMEA), The Medication Safety Board helps companies determine the likelihood that a proposed product, package label, package design, or technology system would be vulnerable to user error.

In order to provide the widest breadth of safety services, we often collaborate with other companies including market research companies and human factors engineering companies. These companies help complement the services we offer by providing another area of expertise beyond safety to the project. We are happy to recommend our colleagues for you to work with directly, or we can coordinate with them as your primary client contact, depending on your needs.

If you are a company that provides services to the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry who would like to collaborate with us, please contact us.
