Danger: chemicals! The hazard pictograms explained (leaflet)

Danger: chemicals! The hazard pictograms explained (leaflet)

The pictograms for labelling chemical products have changed. Prevent workplace injury and diseases by learning more about the pictograms. Chemical products are used every day at work - not just in factories, but also in construction work or in offices - in things like cleaning products, paints, etc. The European Union’s 2009 classification, labelling and packaging (CLP) regulation introduced new warning pictograms. The diamond-shaped pictograms indicate the nature of the hazard(s) associated with the use of a hazardous substance or mixture. On labels, the pictograms are accompanied by signal words, hazard statements, and precautionary statements, as well as product and supplier information.
