“Safety begins with communication!” US D.O.T.

Hazardous material labels and placards are placed on packaging, storage, and transport containers, and transport vehicles to identify hazardous substances and communicate handling requirements. Using hazardous material placards and labels is required for compliance with stringent regulatory standards and helps ensure safe handling, shipping, and storage of dangerous goods.

Premium Hazardous Material Labels & Placards

There are several types of hazardous material and dangerous goods labels for flammable liquids, corrosive substances, toxic substances, and other hazards. Each organization also has different regulations for labeling and placarding hazardous materials and waste. D.O.T., IATA and OSHA each have different regulation for labeling and placarding hazardous materials and waste. You can be confident that our catalog of Hazardous Materials Labels & Placards meets the current standards put forth by each of these organizations.
All our pre-printed labels contain the requisite hazard pictograms, signal words, and hazard statements together on each label and placard. Use of these standardized labels and placards on chemicals and compounds covered under the hazard communication standard help you:
  • Improve productivity when handling, storing and using hazardous chemicals
  • Decrease loss and safety risks
  • Save money while meeting labeling and placarding requirements

Our premium labels are proudly made in the USA and printed on glossy paper or vinyl with a permanent pressure sensitive adhesive. Hazardous materials placards are printed with UV ink and available in self-adhesive vinyl or poly coated tagboard. Request a quote today or contact us to learn more.

Selecting the Appropriate Hazardous Material Labels & Placards

It is critical that you use the correct hazardous material labels or placards for regulatory compliance. The type of label you require depends on the type and class of hazardous material, and it is crucial to adhere to placement requirements for package labeling.
The US DOT has nine classes for hazardous materials placards and labels, as defined by Federal Hazardous Material Law regulations:
  • Class 1: Explosives
  • Class 2: Gases
  • Class 3: Flammable Liquid & Combustible Liquids
  • Class 4: Flammable Solid, Spontaneously Combustible, and Dangerous When Wet
  • Class 5: Oxidizer and Organic Peroxide
  • Class 6: Poison and Poison Inhalation Hazard
  • Class 7: Radioactive
  • Class 8: Corrosive
  • Class 9: Miscellaneous & General Dangerous
There are also several requirements for OSHA compliance. It is important to note that using these labels does not replace the need for DOT complaint hazardous materials labels and placards. OSHA hazards include:
  • Health Hazards
  • Flammables
  • Irritants/Ozone Hazards
  • Gases Under Pressure
  • Corrosive Substances
  • Explosives/Self Reactive Substances
  • Oxidizers
  • Environment/Aquatic Toxicity
