Avery WePrint™ Delivers Professionally Printed GHS and Workplace Safety Labels to Your Door
Brea, Calif. – March 16, 2016 – Avery Products Corporation, the leading manufacturer of printable labels and cards, announced today that its Avery WePrint custom printing service now delivers professionally printed, durable GHS and workplace safety labels to your door. This is an alternative to the company’s do-it-yourself line of heavy-duty industrial labels that help organizations comply with OSHA regulations, including the mandated Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). As defined by OSHA, chemical producers and distributors in the U.S. should now be using GHS labels, while workplaces need to update their chemical and secondary container labels by June 1, 2016.

“Whether you want to print GHS and safety labels yourself or have them printed for you, we now have the ability to offer both options,” said Jeff Herz, Director of Marketing for Avery WePrint. “Easy-to-customize templates, low minimum orders, quick delivery and excellent product durability make Avery WePrint a flexible and convenient option for your safety labeling needs."

Avery WePrint custom printed GHS and safety labels are waterproof and resistant to chemicals, abrasion, sun, tearing and harsh temperatures. Featuring a high-performance adhesive, the labels pass the BS 5609 Sec. 2 protocol for 90-day seawater submersion. For overseas shipping of chemicals where IMDG certification is required, WePrint GHS Labels are also BS 5609 Sec. 3 certified.

The labels adhere to metal, plastic, painted surfaces, fiber, polycarbonate, glass and other materials. They’re available in multiple sizes to help identify hazardous materials in a variety of containers such as drums, totes, pails, jugs and bottles.

GHS and workplace safety labels are simple to create and order using free templates and software from Avery, with no download required. Designs are available for GHS, OSHA, ANSI, NFPA and more. The free Avery GHS Wizard walks users through the process of creating labels that include GHS-compliant pictograms and statements. It’s also easy to customize the labels with a company logo, barcode, lot numbers and other important information.

With minimum order quantities as low as two sheets, standard flat-rate shipping, and delivery to your door in as few as three days, Avery WePrint offers a convenient way to customize and order your required GHS and safety labels.
