GHS Labeling Requirements

In 2012, OSHA officially adopted GHS (Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals), a standardized system for classifying and labeling chemical products. By December 2015, all manufacturers and distributors of chemical products must be in compliance with GHS standards. New GHS labels must include a pictogram, signal words, a hazard statement, and specific precautionary statements.

Label Impressions understands the difficulties involved in meeting the new requirements and including all the necessary information - especially on smaller packages - and offers several products and services to help.

  • Pressure-sensitive adhesives and materials designed to last the life of the most durable applications

  • Materials which can withstand solvents, temperature extremes, UV exposure, moisture, chemicals, abrasion, and other harsh environments

  • Several expanded content designs to add more label real estate to smaller packages

  • Fast turnaround and environmentally responsible products and manufacturing

  • Any label shape or size you can imagine
