GHS signs and chemical labels in use at the workplace are essential if you work with dangerous chemicals. Our comprehensive range of GHS labels will allow you to clearly identify any hazards and minimise the risk of an accident.
GHS stands for Globally Harmonised System, a system that is the international standard for chemical labelling. GHS was created by the United Nations to ensure that dangerous chemicals would be labelled in the same way all over the world, and it now supersedes other EU classification standards, so it is important to ensure that any chemical labels you purchase are compliant with GHS regulations.
Label Source's collection of GHS container labels covers all possible bases, and with GHS regulations being legally binding in the UK since May 2015, these labels will help you to keep your workplace both safe and legal.
We sell GHS compliant labels for the following hazards:
- Explosive chemicals
- Flammable chemicals
- Corrosive chemicals
- Toxic chemicals
- Environmental hazards
- Pressurised gases
- Irritant/harmful substances
In addition to the Globally Harmonised System, these labels also comply with CLP (Classification, Labelling and Packaging) Regulations for Chemicals (mixtures and substances). GHS has been implemented in the EU through the CLP Regulation 1272/2008. Our GHS chemical labels are available in a selection of sizes to cater for different packages by capacity.
GHS Chemical Labels - More Information:
These red-and-white GHS chemical labels are designed to ensure the health and safety of both your workforce and the general public. Any potentially hazardous chemicals should be properly labelled with the correct GHS hazard symbol to minimise the likelihood of injury and illness.
If you are in possession of unlabelled chemicals, it is crucial that you rectify this situation as soon as possible and apply the correct GHS hazard labels where necessary. For example, toxic or poisonous substances should be identified with the instantly recognisable skull and crossbones symbol, while potentially flammable material should be marked with the stark flame of the flammable label.
All of our GHS labels are self-adhesive, allowing you to affix them with ease. A clear polypropylene laminate protects the surface of each label without compromising its visibility. We also sell blank GHS labels and GHS stickers for thermal and laser printers, as well as an official GHS classification sign for informational purposes.
