Warning Labels and Stickers

Warning labels and stickers are there to maintain workplace health and safety. These efficient labels highlight a hazard, communicate what it is and save lives.

When using warning labels and stickers, you want them to last. We are committed to producing high-quality, durable warning labels that stand the test of time.

What Are Warning Labels?

Warning labels refer to any sticker that informs someone of a hazard. Warnings can include aspects like electricity and heat, but sometimes, businesses need very specific warning labels.

The Health and Safety Regulations 1996 states that ‘[safety] signs and signals are required where, despite putting in place all other relevant measures, a significant risk to the health and safety of employees and others remains’.

This means all businesses need warning labels that last. 

Why Should I Use Warning Labels?

Warning labels are essential to highlight dangers in your workplace. Without them, it can be difficult to keep employees aware of possible dangers.

Even a highly trained workforce can be prone to errors in judgement or forgetfulness. Warning stickers ensure you don’t risk that happening.

We’ve covered the costs of not using warning labels and stickers in our blog post: Warning Signs: The Costs of Improper Warning Signs

How Do I Use Warning Labels?

There are a few rules you should follow when using warning stickers:

  • Ensure the label is affixed properly to a surface.
  • Place labels in areas where they can be easily seen at eye level.
  • Use the correct label for the right hazard.

It is better to err on the side of caution, so use as many labels and stickers as possible. You don't want to be caught out with insufficient labels.
