Lift Hazard Labels

Clarion Safety’s wide selection of weight and lift hazard labels instruct your product users about the need to follow proper lifting behavior for heavy or awkward objects. The European Directive on Machinery 2006/42/EC, in section 1.1.5, makes special mention of the need for machine designers to incorporate a means to handle machines and machine components when weight, size, or shape makes moving them difficult. These include options to fit machines with attachments for lifting gear, allowing potential attachments to be added, shaped in a way that standard lifting gear can be attached, be feasibly moveable, or be equipped for picking up and moving safely. That’s why you’ll also find labels in this category to indicate lift points and tie-down points.

Lifting heavy objects over 50 lbs can pose serious health consequences like musculoskeletal injuries and lifelong impairments if not done properly. That’s why it’s so important to properly warn and remind machinery operators of proper technique. OSHA points out that heavy lifting can result in back sprains, muscle pulls, wrist injuries, elbow injuries, and spinal damage.

Use our lifting safety labels to mark lift points and suggested actions like a two-person lift on your equipment. Select from multi-symbol and text, symbol only, symbol and text, and wordless formatted labels, available in both indoor and outdoor formats.  If our lift hazard labels are close but not exactly what you’re looking for, you can use our online design your own tool or contact our team of safety professionals to customize your own labels, signs, and tags.
