General Data Is Your Source For Complete GHS Label Printing Solutions

The regulations associated with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS) of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals fundamentally changes the way that chemical products are labeled. If you are a manufacturer or re-packager of chemical products, you will need to make sure your hazmat labels comply with the GHS labeling standards, including the recent 2019 revisions and updates.

What Are The GHS Required Label Elements?

GHS labels are designed to communicate dangerous and hazardous material using a universal standard of text and pictogram formats as indicated by the OSHA's updated Hazard Communication regulations. Depending on the container being labeled, the hazmat labels may be required to utilize an approved facestock, ink and/or printing method. All labels are required to have pictograms, a signal word, hazard and precautionary statements, the product identifier, and supplier identification.

Is It Time To Upgrade Your GHS Label Printing?

Many chemical manufacturers and re-packagers are looking to upgrade their existing GHS label printing systems.  Printers that were installed 5-8 years ago are reaching end of life, have limited connectivity options, and are requiring more service calls to stay operational.

These chemical manufacturers want to improve productivity, increase production efficiencies and reduce overall costs for their GHS label printing.

Now is a great time to upgrade.  There are new, better and more affordable printer and label options for GHS label printing.
