Best Practice Equipment Safety Labels in
Material Handling Industries
In today’s workplaces, labels on equipment and signage within the workplace are a key component in communicating about hazards and mitigating risk. Yet, companies often struggle with keeping labels and signs up-to-date and consistent. Without effective warnings in place – ones that comply with OSHA/ANSI/ISO and effectively reinforce behavior – the lives of your workers could be at risk.
A Global System for Safety Labels
Material handling equipment, like conveyors, is used in hundreds of industries worldwide. Facilities all over the world rely on complex conveyor systems to manufacture, package and sort products. In addition, the materials, containers and products often need to be transported from one point to another within these worldwide facilities. This means the involvement of energized moving parts and machinery can result in the possibility of injury if the equipment is used incorrectly. When a major, international leader in material handling and logistics automation decided they needed a global system of safety labels, they knew they couldn’t rely on just any company or any printer for the solution.
