Safety labels are a key part of the information for use provided by equipment manufacturers to users and are often the only information that many users get to see. This makes the design of safety labels critical to their effectiveness. There is as much risk in the under-use of safety labels as there is in the over-use of safety labels. Often, manufacturers simply select generic labels easily available from catalogs, missing the opportunity to design labels specific to the equipment and the hazards present.

Customization Options for Safety Labels

Informational symbols, text and colors are regulated through globally recognized standards set by OSHA, ANSI and other organizations. Clear translation of these standards on safety labels is important, and so is taking time to incorporate specific information or operational instructions that relate to your product.

This embossed aluminum warning plate is a great example of a non-standard design. The custom shape certainly draws attention and makes you take a second look. Permanent embossed text will stand the test of time and exposure to harsh operating environment.

  • QR Codes
  • Serialization
