October 10, 2008, Newsletter Issue #137: Safety Labels and Signs

Tip of the Week

This might be overlooked when selecting safety products, but like the well-known “DANGER” sign at the construction site, manufacturers, and employers are required to provide safety labels on machinery and chemical substances, warning employees of the hazards involved.

Substances and machinery should be clearly labeled as described in ANSI Z535.4 - “Product Safety Signs and Labels.” As set out in the standards detailed in “ANSI Z535.4,” safety labels and signs must:

· Notify of potential a hazard
· Specify the intensity of the hazard
· Educate what will happen if encountering the hazard, and
· Provide a way to avoid the hazard

Based on this information, do not forget to purchase the appropriate signs and labels.
