Standards and Compliance
Clarion Safety labels are designed in line with the ANSI/ISO standards and can help you meet OSHA requirements. The use of symbols in warnings and instructions is essential to the ISO 3864-2 standards and is encouraged in the ANSI Z535.4 standards.
GHS, also known as the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, is a regulation adopted by OSHA to better protect workers from hazardous chemicals. Conforming to the worldwide GHS standard is mandatory. The GHS regulation requires that all hazardous chemicals be properly labeled, and these labels must incorporate specific graphical symbols, or pictograms, meant to convey the hazards related to each chemical. Each GHS pictogram consists of a distinctive black symbol appearing on a white background framed inside a red diamond-shaped border. The exclamation mark GHS pictogram indicates a chemical hazard related to skin and eye irritants, skin sensitizer, acute toxicity, narcotic effects, respiratory tract irritant, and hazardous to ozone layer.
