Take a Tour of the New Epson ColorWorks Printer

As I mentioned in a previous post, "Are You Ready for GHS Labeling," GHS labeling requirements will go into effect in the US in 2015. To ease this transition, we recommend the Epson ColorWorks printer. It makes creating and printing your GHS label easy and cost-effective.

The printer, ink and label material are now available for purchase on Go-Label.com.

We put together a quick video tour of the new Epson GP-C831 inkjet label printer to show you how simple printing a GHS label can be.

Are You Ready for GHS Chemical Labeling?

Big changes are coming for regulated chemical labels.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) officially adopted a ruling that changes its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to match the guidelines of the Globally Harmonized System (GHS).

This new labeling system sets out to reduce confusion, create a standard process and educate users.

 

Current Compliant Labels

In 1994, OSHA mandated that containers with hazardous chemicals must be labeled with a product identifier and hazard statements appropriate for each hazardous chemical.

For years Weber customers were able to use blank thermal-transfer labels or direct-thermal labels to print this product and hazard information.

Other companies ordered pre-printed color labels using the Hazardous Materials Identification System (HMIS) boxes and then imprinted specific safety information on-site. They were able to variably-imprint their individual products' Health, Flammability, Reactivity and Personal Protection ratings.

But starting in 2015, those elements alone will no longer be compliant with OSHA. Manufacturers will be able to continue to use the HMIS information on their labels, but they also will be required to include more specific elements that are in the GHS guidelines.
