Online label-making tool eases global labeling compliance

This company’s new label-generator tool (photo) allows chemical process operators handling hazardous chemicals to create custom labels that are compliant with the Globally Harmonized Standard (GHS) of hazard safety. The GHS generator tool assists users with pre-written hazard statements and auto-generated pictograms, eliminating the need for time-intensive research, a designer or expensive software, says the company. To generate a GHS-compliant label, users select the substance from a predetermined list or enter their own, and then choose the appropriate GHS-approved hazard statements, details and supplier identifications, generate a PDF of the label, download a size and print it onsite. —, Sanford, Fla.
