GHS Wizard Testimonials: A Tool That Makes Labeling Easy

Real people tested the Avery GHS Wizard®

Prior to the release of the Avery GHS Wizard subscription service, the team took it on the road for real people from across the country to test. We gave safety and compliance professionals early access to the software to hear GHS Wizard testimonials from those who use GHS labels in their jobs.

This is because GHS labels are a good way to make sure the chemical containers in your workplace are OSHA-compliant. In fact, we’ve taken a deep dive into labeling secondary containers for compliance here. Regardless of what kind of containers in your workplace require GHS labels, it’s crucial that they contain the correct information. Not only for achieving OSHA compliance but also for employee safety in general.

Making sure your GHS labels have the right information can be tricky, but we have a couple tools that can help. First, there are free GHS templates within Avery Design and Print Online (ADPO) that you can fill in manually. What’s more, our GHS Wizard subscription unlocks tools that allow you to create GHS labels in minutes.

Avery Design and Print Online vs. GHS Wizard

Avery Design and Print Online (ADPO) is free label-making software. You can access it online and edit, save, and print projects for free when you log in to your free Avery account. In contrast, you can unlock the advanced Avery GHS Wizard tools in ADPO with a GHS Wizard subscription. With the subscription, you have access to more GHS label templates, and you can fill in GHS information and pictograms quickly and easily with autofill features. Meanwhile, without autofill features, you will need to type in information from Safety Data Sheets (SDS) by hand. You will also have to individually choose pictograms. If you’re still not convinced, you can check out GHS Wizard testimonials from early adopters to see how the subscription can benefit you.

What does the GHS Wizard do?

As previously mentioned, the GHS Wizard subscription allows users to access advanced GHS tools. This is in addition to the standard label-making tools available in ADPO, such as our free barcode generator. Now let’s go further with a breakdown of all the advanced features included in a GHS Wizard subscription.

First, the GHS Wizard includes English and Spanish statements so you can communicate with more people on your team. Secondly, the information that the GHS Wizard automatically fills out comes from a trusted source. In fact, Chemwatch™, a global leader in chemical management, powers the database. Furthermore, the database includes over 300,000 pure, mixed, and branded chemicals. When you are using GHS Wizard, you can search this database using the CAS number or the chemical name (i.e., bleach, peroxide, acetone, etc.). You can also find valuable insights from GHS Wizard testimonials, showcasing the real-world benefits experienced by other users.

Information the GHS Wizard will fill in

After you pick a GHS label template and enter the CAS number or chemical name, the GHS wizard will fill in the information listed below. All you have to do is compare the information with the SDS to make sure it’s correct. You can, of course, make edits to autofill information before printing or saving your labels.

  • Product Identifier
  • Signal Word 
  • Hazard Statements 
  • Precautionary Statements 
  • Pictograms

How to try the GHS Wizard for yourself

You can subscribe to the GHS Wizard on a monthly or annual basis or take it for a test drive for free.

In trial mode, you can see firsthand how easy it is to design and autofill GHS labels using the GHS Wizard tools. As long as you are in this mode, the GHS labels you create will feature a watermark to prevent printing. Once you subscribe, the watermark will be removed.

GHS Wizard testimonials from early adopters

User experience and ease of use

“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 Avery GHS Chemical labeling tools to other businesses small and large.”

Maintenance and Safety Engineer, U.S. Forest Service

“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 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 be printed right on 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

GHS Wizard testimonials to compliance and effectiveness

“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 who 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 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

OSHA fines and penalties

“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.”

Real-world applications for the GHS Wizard

Small business uses for the GHS Wizard

A small business, such as a local cleaning service, can improve efficiency by using the Avery GHS Wizard to handle chemical labels. For example, secondary container labels are needed when cleaning supplies containing chemicals like bleach or disinfectants are transferred to smaller containers. Any time workers need to put chemicals in a different container, they can use the GHS Wizard to quickly create secondary container labels. This saves time and effort since they don’t have to make labels by hand, and it makes it easier to ensure they include the correct information. Even employees who aren’t great with computers can use the software easily because it’s simple to understand. Moreover, users can find reassurance in GHS Wizard testimonials, seeing how other small businesses have benefited from its use. Additionally, they can save the label designs to their Avery account so they can reprint GHS labels as needed.

Increase efficiency in large operations

A large chemical manufacturing plant can work more efficiently by using the Avery GHS Wizard to standardize GHS labels and even print them onsite using BS5609-certified labels. The software can quickly make many labels at once and is easy to use, so employees don’t need much training. It also keeps all label information in one place, making it easy to update and ensuring all labels are consistent. Standardization is a big part of continuous optimization that can help large operations run smoothly and comply with OSHA regulations.
