HCL Labels has introduced its largest catalogue of OSHA GHS-compliant labelling: more than 700 ready-made GHS compliant labels.

Required by 29 CFR 1910.1200, the labels enable U.S.-based chemical companies to align with the United Nations’ Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).

HCL Labels introduces largest catalogue of OSHA GHS-compliant labelling: more than 700 ready-made GHS compliant labels.

Fernando Nell, CEO of HCL Labels and an environmental health and safety consultant explains, “The new labels enable chemical manufacturers to improve the safety of handlers, shippers and users in the U.S. and around the world.”

“Each label identifies a hazardous substance by chemical name and composition and provides pictograms of the hazard, ‘Danger’ or ‘Warning’ signal words, precautionary and hazard statements and first aid information.”

According to OSHA, the revised standard will “reduce trade barriers and result in…productivity improvements for American businesses that regularly handle, store and use hazardous chemicals, as well as cost savings…when revising [relevant] safety data sheets and labels.”

The largest library of OSHA GHS-compliant labels in the world

HCL Labels offers more than 700 ready-made OSHA GHS-compliant labels and the ability to produce compliant labels for custom chemicals. It is the largest library of OSHA GHS-compliant hazard communication labels, ranging from familiar substances such as ethanol to extremely dangerous chemicals such as hydrogen fluoride, used in etching glass and pickling stainless steel.

Nell added, “Clients used to have to source the labelling they needed from many small suppliers. Our library and our ability to customise specialty labels offer them the convenience of meeting all their compliance and safety labelling needs in one place.”

“We also can create labels in any language, making it easy for our multinational clients to better serve their customers outside the United States.”
