Safety Label Format Solutions for Solving Complex Messaging Challenges

This entry is part 3 of 3 in the series Safety Labels

Safety Label Messaging Basics

Safety label design fol­lows three prin­ciples:

  1. Identi­fy the haz­ard
  2. Identi­fy the likely degree of injury that could occur
  3. Instruct the read­er about ways to avoid injury

Design­ing warn­ings seems a simple task. How­ever, users may not be Eng­lish speak­ing or lit­er­ate. Depend­ing on the jur­is­dic­tions where your product will be mar­keted, like the EU, text may not be desir­able, so pic­to­graph­ic labels may be the most appro­pri­ate choice.

This entry is part 2 of 3 in the series Safety Labels

The Importance of Best Practice Product Safety Label Standards

Product safety labels serve an import­ant role. They pro­tect both users and man­u­fac­tur­ers. Man­u­fac­tur­ers are con­cerned with build­ing products and pro­tect­ing them­selves from liab­il­ity law­suits. Users are con­cerned abut buy­ing safe products. Man­u­fac­tur­ers are also con­cerned with meet­ing the leg­al require­ments for product labelling in the mar­kets they serve.

Machinery Safety Labels: 3 Top Tools for Effective Warnings

This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Safety Labels

Machinery Safety Labels

The third level of the Hier­archy of Con­trols is Inform­a­tion for Use. Safety Labels are a key part of the Inform­a­tion for Use provided by machine build­ers to users and are often the only inform­a­tion that many users get to see. This makes the design and place­ment of the safety labels crit­ic­al to their effect­ive­ness. There is as much risk in the under-use of safety labels as there is in the over-use of safety labels. Often, machine build­ers and users simply select gen­er­ic labels that are eas­ily avail­able from cata­logues, miss­ing the oppor­tun­ity to design labels that are spe­cif­ic to the machine and the haz­ards present.
