Carlsbad, Calif., October 4, 2016 — 3E Company, a leading provider of environmental health and safety (EH&S) compliance and information management services, today announced the launch of a new solution for on-demand hazard communication labeling that can save time, help streamline regulatory compliance, and serve to increase workplace safety. The new Label Generator enables customers to quickly and easily produce shipping and storage labels for regulated substances that reflect more accurate, updated safety data and comply with Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) requirements. 3E Company is a Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK) business.
3E Authoring Services customers can now generate GHS compliant precautionary, hazard, and transport labels in seconds using a highly intuitive online interface. Label Generator uses current, up-to-date, and compliant label document templates prepared and maintained by 3E’s team of global regulatory compliance specialists. Label content is pulled directly from the system that 3E uses to prepare Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), serving to ensure the label content for each product aligns with the SDS.
The solution supports the generation of labels in a variety of sizes and formats, including dozens of formats for country and regional regulatory compliance such as country-specific adaptations of GHS. Content that appears on each label varies by label type and region and includes GHS hazard classifications, GHS symbols, GHS precautionary statements, handling instructions, transport information, and manufacturer information. Customers can also print custom formats designed specifically to meet unique business and industry requirements. Output is available in more than 45 languages.
Label Generator features a user-friendly online interface that supports a variety of devices, including tablets and touch displays. With minimal training, users can quickly and easily create and print workplace safety labels on demand in Portable Document Format (PDF) using standard Internet browsers.
Label Generator is available to both MSDgen® users and 3E Authoring Services customers. Label content is populated from SDSs written by regulatory compliance specialists using MSDgen, 3E’s powerful hazard communication authoring, management, and distribution platform.
“Producing GHS compliant labels for regulated products in multiple markets can be difficult and time-consuming,” said Clark VanScoder, senior vice president, authoring software and services, 3E Company. “Label content must be accurate as well as aligned with the latest regulatory requirements. Our new label generation solution significantly reduces the complexity of hazard communication authoring, offering customers a powerful yet simple way to label their substances, mixtures, and finished goods in compliance with workplace safety requirements worldwide.”
