Testimonials from GHS Wizard early adopters
“For any stragglers who are not GHS label compliant, OSHA fines and penalties are expected to go up 80% this summer,” says Mark Howell,” owner of Howell Safety and Training Solutions, a Jonesboro, AR-based safety and risk management consulting company. “By August 1, the maximum fine is expected to rise from $7,000 per violation to $12,600 per violation, and for more serious issues from $70,000 to $127,000 per violation.”
“I have actually shared the Avery GHS Wizard program at the last two OSHA 10 hour classes I taught as part of the HazCom section…I was amazed at how easy and convenient it was. You have a great product”.
- Mark Howell, Howell Safety and Training Solutions
“Your GHS Wizard is an extremely effective system. I am blown away! You are providing people with a way to bring GHS information all together for clients that are not familiar with GHS compliance. The labels are durably designed to hold the image and adhere to the container. I have worked in compliance for over 40 years…I have never seen anything like this in the field yet. This is Great!”
- California State Compliance Officer and Safety Engineer
“I previously tried using risk management software for our GHS labeling needs, but I recently switched to the Avery GHS software and labels. The Avery GHS Wizard is flexible and user friendly, plus it helps the user select appropriate hazards and precautions to show on the labels, based on CAS # entries. The labels are durable and work well for our needs. I definitely recommend the Avery GHS solution to other companies."
- Metal Service Safety Manager, Kloeckner Metals Co.
I am very impressed with the Avery GHS Wizard. It is user friendly and intuitive. I was a somewhat overwhelmed by all of the pictograms and codes required for a GHS compliant label, but the Avery GHS Wizard has simplified the process and made it very easy for anyone to use. The labels are durable and can print right to the printers in our office. Since we only need to print GHS Secondary Container labels for a handful of products, the Avery solution is perfect for our company.”
- HR Safety Administration, International Line Builders
“I love the Avery GHS Wizard! It is extremely user friendly and very easy to use! You put in your CAS # (Chemical ID #) and all the required information just pops up! I work in a research department with hundreds of various chemicals and the labels are working out great! I am loving this system! In addition to the GHS labels, we can also create and print a variety of other Signs and labels. I would definitely recommend the Avery GHS Chemical labeling system to other business small and large.”
- Maintenance / Safety Engineer, U.S. Forest Service
