Hazard Labels

We keep up with the hazard communication standard, one label at a time.

If your product has any harmful potential, it needs to have a hazard label in order to stick to GHS compliance. U.S. Tape & Label can create the ideal hazardous product identifier for you so that you are able to show awareness, consideration, and compliance.

Hazard Labels

As of 2015, OSHA requires that all products with the potential to harm be clearly marked as such by a hazard label. Different dangers have different labels, but each one of them creates a clear understanding of the potential injury that can be inflicted if mishandled or tampered with. These labels don’t have to be limited to their pictographic minimum though; USTL can create hazard labels for any product based on your specifications. U.S. Tape & Label has the experience and expertise to create any type of hazard label to help others minimize exposure and help you minimize risk. Whether you are a chemical manufacturer, machinery manufacturer, or otherwise, we have labels to fit any and all of your products.

Protect Against Hazardous Material Exposure With Effective Labeling

Keep your company and anyone you deal with safe with the right labeling. Harmful materials need to be highlighted and USTL has the labels to do it.

GHS Labels

The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) is a labeling system designed to easily identify the potential harm that a certain container of chemicals can cause. GHS labeling requirements dictate that hazard labels need to have:

  • Name, Address and Telephone Number
  • Product Identifier
  • Signal Word
  • Hazard Statement(s)
  • Precautionary Statement(s)
  • Pictogram(s)

This ensures that, beyond compliance, anyone can determine the important aspects of your chemicals at a glance. It’s important to keep up with the classification and labeling of chemicals to reduce exposure and potential injury or worse. 

Hazard Pictograms
