Brady Expands GHS Label Size Options for MSDSonline Brand Products

Users can now print GHS labels in 3 different sizes on select Brady printers

MILWAUKEE, Wis. – Brady (NYSE:BRC), a global leader in product and facility identification solutions, today announced its inclusion of additional Globally Harmonized System (GHS) label sizes in its partnership with VelocityEHS and its leading MSDSonline brand chemical management solution. Brady and VelocityEHS joined forces to provide EHS professionals with an easier GHS labeling solution. By adding the capability to print on 3x4-inch and 4x6-inch labels, along with the previous 2x3-inch labels, right from the MSDSonline chemical management system, customers have expanded size and application versatility.

“With the final June 1, 2016, GHS deadline nearing, this partnership is focused on simplifying GHS label creation to help make the transition to this new system more seamless,” says Lori Aeschbacher, global product manager for benchtop printers at Brady. “By incorporating two additional label sizes into our offering, users benefit from expanded printing flexibility to better communicate chemical hazards in the workplace.”

Under GHS, chemical labeling is standardized for consistent communication of chemical hazard information. The label format includes six key elements that can be found on the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) that chemical manufacturers provide with the hazardous chemicals they distribute. Users of the MSDSonline system can take information on these SDSs and easily create labels that are formatted with the GHS label elements. These labels can then be printed directly to Brady’s BBP®33 and BBP®31 label printers in 2x3-inch, 3x4-inch and 4x6-inch sizes.
