Using our in-house designed labels to keep your secondary chemical containers OSHA-Compliant is easy and efficient! GHS labels are required to keep employees informed and alert to potential hazards of chemicals that aren’t in the original container.
One of our clients recently shared how her company used our GHS Labels.
Amber, a Continuous Improvement Project Specialist for Stratix Corp. shared this information with us, after receiving some labels in a free Sample Box we sent to her:
“We tried out your GHS sample labels and they work perfect! The label is easy to write on with sharpie and highlighter and the ink from neither pen smeared once dried! The labels were easy to apply to the bottles with no creases, bubbles, or struggles.”
Amber went on to tell us she had been searching for labels that could withstand coming in contact with the cleaning chemicals. The company placed a clear label over the top of our GHS labels.
“we tested its resistance among four different types of cleaning products (Isopropyl Alcohol, Simple Green, Glass Cleaner, and even Adhesive Remover). The GHS labels withstood all four cleaning chemicals without even a corner lifting. Stratix is so ecstatic that we finally found a simple GHS compliant label with such outstanding quality. I attached a few pictures to this email to provide visual. We will be placing an order for about 450 of these GHS labels tomorrow afternoon.”
Why GHS Labels are Important
OSHA’s Globally Harmonized System for Hazard Communication (GHS) guidelines went into full effect in 2017. Requirements include that any containers (usually smaller and more portable) you pour chemicals into, MUST be properly labelled with chemical name, hazards and other pertinent information. So, our GHS secondary container labels are a top-selling product for us, and Stop-Painting’s in-house designed labels are a top pick for companies looking for an easy solution to the new GHS regulations.
The new GHS rules are one of OSHA’s most far-reaching regulations in the past decade. Because these rules focus on chemical hazards and how we communicate about them, the GHS labels are important.
If your company removes chemicals from an original bottle and transfers chemicals into a secondary bottle (usually spray bottles), you have to apply proper labels on these secondary containers. Think this may not be necessary? A typical OSHA fine for not properly labeling containers according to GHS guidelines is about $3,000.
