Quantum Adds More Languages to GHS Workplace Labeling
Ensure the Safety of all Employees with Quantum’s Labels in Multiple Languages
Labeling is a critical component of OSHA’s HazCom and other countries’ GHS based regulations. Chemical manufacturers, importers, and distributors are responsible for ensuring that containers of hazardous chemicals are properly labeled before they are shipped or introduced into the workplace. If you manufacture chemicals, you need Quantum’s SDS Authoring software because it will generate the GHS labeling data required for your products. If you buy in bulk and divide chemical contents into smaller containers, you are responsible for Hazcom labels for these containers.
Quantum’s software now allows you to create workplace labels in the multiple languages as following:
Chinese (Simplified and Traditional)
But why is this so important?
The answer is simple. If you buy chemicals in bulk and subdivide them at your workplace, you are required to place a complaint workplace label on the new containers. And workplace labels are required to have:
A signal word
Hazard and precautionary statements
Quantum’s SDS management software allows you to generate workplace labels to standard label stock using the data already in the software. In addition, you may generate workplace labels in multiple languages as mentioned above which are invaluable if you have non-English speaking employees, or if you have factories in multiple countries.
So, if you want to remain OSHA compliant, create labels in multiple languages, or subdivide chemicals you buy in bulk, Quantum has the perfect software for you.
