The Importance of Safety and Warning Labels from Impact Label Corporation
Generally speaking, a safety or warning label, is a label that is either attached to a product, item, or equipment, or is found in a product’s instruction manual that is used in order to warn the user about potential risks of utilizing the item, including manufacturer or seller restrictions for certain uses. So, as you can see, ensuring that your warning labels stay affixed to your product and are long lasting is extremely important to the safety of its users.
While there are a number of words used on safety and warning labels, the three most common are, “caution”, “danger”, or “warning.” However, these words aren’t interchangeable, as “danger” indicates a severe hazard, while warning is used to indicated hazards that are not as severe. Typically, there will be just one of these signal words on the warning label, regardless of how many hazards that item may have. All warning labels must have pictograms, a signal word, hazard, and precautionary statements. We can also reference specific weight or use limits for items on its safety or warning label. At Impact Label, we produce safety and warning labels for many industries including boating, agricultural equipment, and medical device manufacturers.
