Lake Oswego, OR (PRWEB) June 20, 2012
Creative Safety Supply, a leading supplier of visual safety products, is offering the easy-to-use labeling guide for Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals to ensure safety in the workplace.
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals or GHS is a system for harmonizing hazard classification criteria and chemical hazard communication elements worldwide. Agreed on at an international level by governments, industry, and labor, the GHS serves as a framework or guidance for classifying and labeling hazardous chemicals.
GHS increases the quality and consistency of information provided to workers, employers and chemical users by adopting a standardized approach to hazard classification, labels and safety data.
Advocating the benefits of GHS, Creative Safety Supply carries the best floor marking products in the industry, along with the latest 5S, 6S, visual workplace, lean manufacturing and ergonomic products to make a facility operate as smooth as possible. Headquartered in Beaverton, Oregon with shipping warehouses in Ohio, Oregon and New York, the company takes pride in its years of experience working with modern-day facilities across the globe. It offers a wide array of label printer systems, floor tapes, lean supplies and safety items through CreativeSafetySupply.com.
Creative Safety Supply recognizes that compliance with new GHS Standards is important in effectively communicating product chemical contents through appropriate labeling and pictograms in the facility. Helping disseminate relevant GHS information, the company is presenting the new GHS Labeling Guide for free.
"The GHS guide is very helpful and timely as we begin to adapt to the new, harmonized system. Change is always a process, and this guide is helping our learning curve in leaps and bounds. Thanks for providing this guide at no charge. We found it very helpful," Marc Wellston from Cleveland, Ohio shares at CreativeSafetySupply.com.
The Creative Safety Supply GHS Labeling Guide essentially gives an overview of GHS labeling guidelines and pictograms. Easy-to-use, the well thought-out guide is an introduction to GHS compliance, and serves as reminder of pictogram meanings and information placement on labels, which can be done using the GHS Label Printer offered by the company.
