At Label Bar, we understand and value the importance of adhering to health and safety regulations when you run a business or work in an institution. With hazardous machinery, chemicals, substances and environmental positionings, there a number of risks you may be exposed to. With the right labelling, you can immediately and clearly communicate to those on the premises what kind of danger they may be at risk from, and where to take extra care. Today, we will take a look at the range of GHS regulation labels we offer to aid you in doing this.
What are GHS regulation labels?
The GHS hazard labels are part of a universally applicable set of environmental, physical, and health and safety regulations. They are implemented by the United Nations’ Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals, allowing the risks posed by substances and chemicals to be understood regardless of the country you are working in. By harmonising GHS regulation stickers, goods are also able to move more freely.
Why do you need them?
As of 2015, the previous design of orange and black hazard stickers was phased out and changed to a red diamond with a white shape in the middle. This allows the sign to be more easily spotted and read, and your company may not be working according to regulation guidelines if you have not implemented this switch yet. Failing to do so puts your business and those around you at risk, not just from the uncommunicated hazards posed by the chemicals you are using, but from the legal repercussions of failing to comply with this law.
What do we offer?
Our range of GHS stickers will ensure that anyone handling chemicals on your premises will see immediately what risks are carried by that substance. Our GHS labels come in smaller and larger sizes, making them suitable for anything ranging from test tubes to boxed packages of chemicals. Each of our stickers covers a specific health and safety hazard.
We provide stickers that inform on the following risks; flammable labels; oxidising labels; irritant labels; explosive labels; corrosive labels; environmental hazard labels; toxic labels; compressed gas labels; and health hazard labels. The bold and recognisable images in the centre of the images easily communicate the risk to anyone who reads them, while the red and white contrasting background is a clear warning signal. Simply peel the back, and attach the selected sticker on the surface of the chemicals you are using.
We appreciate the importance of obtaining the correct GHS stickers quickly, so you can begin to safely use chemicals on the premises and to distribute them through sales as soon as possible. For this reason, at Label Bar we offer free delivery within the UK, and a 24-hour dispatch service.
