New Warning Labels on the Cleaning Chemicals

On June 15th, 2012 By 

The warning labels on the chemical cleaning products are going to be changed. The reason is the programme of the United Nations which purpose is to enter the new system of symbols in the whole world.

The signs will be composed by black symbols surrounded by red borders on a white background. Part of them are very similar to the old ones but there are several signs which are completely different.

In order to help the users to get used with the new symbols, the Chemical Hazards Communications offer the people to download a short guide from the Internet. The file can be founded on www.understandthelabel.org.uk.

The new system for the warning labels is going to ease the consumers especially when they travel as well as the businessmen who import and export chemical products. The work of the cleaners will be also easier if they have to work with foreign products.

Those of you who haven’t seen the system yet can be calm because there will be a transitional period before the new labels replace completely the old ones.

  1. Chemical Label Printing Says:

    Explaining the information and precautions on the chemical product containers with the help of symbols is a great idea. It makes the chemical containers more user friendly as nobody gives time to read all the information written on the labels while symbols attract users to see why it is used there.
