Avery and VelocityEHS Make GHS Label Creation a Seamless Process
BREA, Calif. – Feb. 14, 2017–Avery Products Corporation, a leading manufacturer of printable labels and cards, has partnered with VelocityEHS, a leading cloud-based environment, health, safety (EHS) software provider to develop a ground-breaking integration that makes generating GHS-aligned chemical container labels a smooth, automated process. With the award-winning Avery UltraDuty® GHS Chemical Labels, and the VelocityEHS MSDSonline chemical management solution, customers can now create and print fully customizable workplace labels with information taken directly from their online library of safety data sheets (SDS) using the free Avery Design & Print GHS Wizard software at avery.com/ghs.

“We see the integration between VelocityEHS and our award-winning GHS Wizard labeling software as a first-of-its-kind breakthrough in the industry, making GHS label creation a truly seamless process,” said Jenifer Do, Marketing Director for Industrial Labels at Avery. “Now MSDSonline users can leverage the easy-to-use editing tools from Avery and print their labels on durable Avery UltraDuty GHS Chemical labels using a desktop printer or the Avery WePrint® professional printing service with the confidence that the labels will be consistent with their SDS.”

Using information captured from SDS in their MSDSonline eBinder, customers can easily generate Avery GHS-aligned secondary chemical container labels in a variety of different sizes, and have expanded customization options, including the ability to resize and move pictograms, text and other information. The Avery Design & Print GHS Wizard software is free to use with Avery UltraDuty GHS Chemical Labels and other Avery labels, and no download is required. Customers can easily add logos, barcodes, variable data and other important information to their labels with the user-friendly editing tool, and then print on demand using existing laser and pigment-based inkjet desktop printers. Customers also have the option to have their labels professionally printed and delivered to their door using the Avery WePrint service.

“Producing chemical workplace labels is a top concern among employers with limited printing resources,” said Mike Flynn, vice president of product development at VelocityEHS. “This ground-breaking integration with Avery saves MSDSonline customers both time and money by providing them with a broad range of label format options to meet their unique labeling needs and the ability to print using standard desktop printers. In short, we’ve streamlined the printing process to make lifesaving chemical communication faster, simpler and easier–especially for many small to mid-size businesses across the country.”

Avery UltraDuty GHS Labels are made with specially engineered, high-performance materials that make them waterproof and resistant to chemicals, abrasion, UV light, tearing and harsh temperatures. In addition, they meet British Standard 5609 for 90-day seawater immersion. The labels are available in a variety of sizes to help identify hazardous materials in containers such as drums, totes, pails, jugs and bottles.

Through the VelocityEHS and Avery integration, creating and printing GHS-aligned workplace labels has become an easy and timesaving process, while providing additional label options and capabilities to those looking to better communicate chemical hazards throughout their facilities.
