Here at Label Source we provide a huge selection of labels which are specifically designed for the hazard prevention and identification process, offering a flexible and reliable safety solution to all sorts of businesses and organisations. 

While it is highly important that these labels are visually clear and recognisable, it is also important to ensure that these labels are reliable and resilient, particularly in the most demanding work spaces. There would be little use for a chemical label that can not withstand the very chemical it warns against, which is why we supply chemical resistant labels. We ensure that our safety labels are made with the ability to withstand damage from several external factors, without compromising the quality of the message being presented.

Our chemical resistant labels are able resist damage from oils and solvents, and can also be used in moisture-heavy environments thanks to their waterproof nature. In addition to these advantages, chemical resistant labels are also able to prevent scratches and abrasions from damaging their surface, for further protection.

Here are just some of the chemical resistant labels we provide:

 

Hand Protection Label

This chemical resistant label is used to promote the use of PPE in hazardous work environments and comes in a choice of 3 sizes.

 

Harmful Warning Label

If you're using our labels to point out chemical hazards, it stands to reason that you should also want these labels to be chemical resistant! These triangular labels are available in 3 sizes, with a variety of symbols to choose from.

 

Jumbo Write and Seal 'Tested' Label

When working with compressed gas, it's important that every safety measure possible is put in place to avoid any accidents or injuries. Any compressed gas can be hazardous due to the high pressure inside the cylinders. The compressed gas can be released safely by opening the valve on the cylinder, but gas can escape from a broken valve, causing it to become unsafe and harmful to the health and safety of your employers. Even when the pressure is low, gas can still escape from a cylinder. Compressed gas cylinder labels are important to help avoid accidents, if they are correctly labelled they can be correctly handled. 

When compressed gas is released uncontrollably, gas cylinders can shoot off like rockets or become pinwheels, and cause some serious injury or damage. A cylinder valve can break if the cylinder has been knocked over or struck. Therefore, it's important that any compressed gas cylinders are correctly labelled, reducing any risk of accidents or injuries.

Here at Label Source, we have an excellent selection of Compressed Gas Labels & Signs to ensure that your gas cylinders are clearly marked to reduce the chance of compressed gas being released. Some of our Compressed Gas Labels & Signs include:

Periodic Inspection Labels

Regular inspections are hugely important if you wish to keep all the electrical installations on your premises running smoothly and safely. If a piece of equipment is left too long without being inspected or tested by a qualified electrical specialist, it may begin to run less efficiently and eventually cease to function altogether; it may also grow to become a safety hazard if its condition is allowed to deteriorate too drastically.

Here at Label Source, we stock a variety of periodic inspection labels to help you keep track of inspection and testing on your premises. We particularly recommend this self-adhesive rigid plastic label:

Inspect periodically label

This periodic inspection label makes it easy to identify at a glance the date of the labelled item's most recent inspection. Furthermore, it also allows you to make a note of when its next inspection is due - perfect for performing quick cursory checks!

If you're looking for a different range of periodic inspection labels, you may be interested in our segmented month-and-year QC inspection labels. They look like this:

Month and year inspection labels

These numbers around the edge of the periodic inspection label pictured above are designed to be punched out once an inspection/test has been completed for the month or year indicated. Again, these inspection labels make it very easy to quickly identify how long it has been since a given piece of machinery was last tested.

Why You Need to Regularly Inspect Electrical Equipment

When it comes to electrical equipment, it goes without saying that regular maintenance and inspection is widely important to ensure your safety. However, it can be difficult to keep track of which machinery has been inspected, which is why Electrical Inspection Labels are so important. If electrical equipment isn't regularly inspected, this increases the risk of an accident in the workplace significantly. 

How Often Should Electrical Inspections Be Carried Out?

Electrical Inspections should be carried out often to ensure there is a small chance of equipment becoming unsafe between uses. The best way to do this is by asking an employee who uses the machine regularly to perform the checks, as they will understand when the machine is not working at its optimum level. It is also a good idea to write down any faults and inspect the electrical equipment more regularly if more faults are found. Our electrical inspection labels have entries so that you can note down the date the product was inspected so that you have an accurate account of how often it has been checked.

Why Electrical Inspection Labels Are Important 

With electrical inspection labels, you can keep track of when the electrical machinery was last inspected, maintained, calibrated or lubricated. By applying a simple electrical inspection label on your machine, you and your staff will know exactly when the machinery or equipment was last inspected, which will ultimately save the company countless hours of valuable time. Here at Label Source, we understand the importance of these labels which is why we offer a wide variety of different electrical inspection labels. All of our electrical inspection labels are high-quality and built to last, you won't have to worry about replacing the label until it has been completed. We also offer inspection labels for equipment such as ladders, fire extinguishers and valves, as these are also parts that need to be regularly inspected.

If you know about certain hazards that exist on your site, or in your workplace you have a duty to warn people about these hazards and how they can avoid them. It doesn't matter whether you work in an office or on a building site, any risk should be made clear. This is usually communicated through the use of workplace safety signs. Workplace safety signs alert those unfamiliar with the working environment to risks and remind employees to be vigilant.

They are crucial to helping your company enforce a safe working environment and help with the maintenance of high safety standards and they are legally adequate warnings and information so companies are better protected from liability claims, in the off chance an accident happened. 

So, what are the common workplace signs and how do you understand what they mean?
