GHS and CLP Health Hazard Labels

GHS Health Hazard – 20mm

GHS Health Hazard labels are quite popular when it comes to orders on our online shop. We print these in various sizes such as 20mm, 28mm, 40mm, 50mm, 100mm and 200mm our most popular size being 20mm. They warn anyone that is handling the boxes or containers that there is the presence of a hazardous chemical inside and to handle with caution.

All GHS labels have a red border in the shape of a diamond to make them distinct and unmissable. These labels, amongst others, are usually accompanied by other labels to make sure the handler is fully aware of what they’re handling. This means that there is usually a tactile label next to it to alert people who are blind or partially sighted that there is a hazardous material inside. A tactile label, if you’re unaware, is a clear label with a raised effect in the shape of a triangle which can be applied by hand or automatic application.

All our GHS labels, including our GHS health hazard 20mm labels, are printed flexographically on our Flexographic press. Every single one of our labels are printed in house on either our digital printing press of flexographic printing press which excludes the need to outsource any of our work to someone else (this also means NO pesky additional charges for our customers).

Our Hazard Warning diamonds fully comply with the UN ADR, RID IMDG/IMO, ADN & ICAO/IATA requirements.
