Hazard Label Uses

These labels are put on boxes, packaging, and flexible packaging to identify what is inside.

Biohazard and Hazmat labels communicate a universal symbol and message that is recognized internationally regardless of language. These custom labels offer specific handling instructions that tell shippers how to handle a package, making the process safer for everyone. Also shippers can organize the packages by label, and keep all of the same types of materials in the same location. Emergency responders can also use hazard labels for accident clean up and first response.

Since October 1st 2005 the United States government has made it mandatory for companies shipping hazardous materials in America to put a hazmat label as close as possible to the original shipping label. For international shipments the label can be on the bottom corner of the package. Both American and International hazmat labels must have the hazard class number on the bottom corner of the label.
