Brands expand partnership to provide additional GHS label printing options
MILWAUKEE, Wis. (PRWEB) October 29, 2015
Brady (NYSE:BRC), a global leader in product and facility identification solutions, today announced its inclusion of an additional printer in its partnership with VelocityEHS and its MSDSonline brand, the leading chemical management solution. Brady and MSDSonline have joined forces to help EHS professionals more easily create workplace labels that align with the Globally Harmonized System (GHS), and the addition of Brady’s BBP®31 label printer will provide more printing options to customers.
“We initially partnered with MSDSonline to help users ease the transition to GHS by simplifying the creation of GHS workplace labels,” says Lori Aeschbacher, global product manager for benchtop printers at Brady. “We’ve taken this partnership a step further to include additional printing capabilities. That way, customers have a variety of resources and tools that meet their unique needs, making the creation of GHS labels more seamless than ever.”
Under GHS, chemical labeling is standardized for consistent communication of chemical hazard information. The label format includes six key elements that can be found on the Safety Data Sheets (SDS) that chemical manufacturers provide with the hazardous chemicals they distribute. MSDSonline customers can use these SDSs to easily create labels that are formatted with the GHS label elements. Then these labels can be printed directly to Brady’s BBP®33 label printer and now the BBP®31 label printer.
Adding the BBP31 printer to the label printing offering gives customers more printing variety. The BBP31 is designed for ease of use and versatility, featuring an intuitive touch screen display, simple label design and a wide variety of materials. Unlike the BBP33 printer that needs to be connected to a computer, the BBP31 is a stand-alone printer with its own touch screen and keyboard.
