Hazard labels for dangerous goods, Bureau Veritas HSE

Hazard labels


They go by many names but within transport of dangerous goods hazards labels are unavoidable necessities.

According to chapter 5.3 in the ADR convention, transporting units with dangerous goods must be equipped with hazard labels and orange signs. All hazard labels are made as squares placed on one corner. At the top there is a symbol, and at the bottom a number referring to the hazardous characteristics of the hazard class.

At Bureau Veritas, we offer a wide range of hazard labels at attractive prices. We offer hazard labels for ADR (road), IATA (air), IMDG (sea), ADN (inland waterways) and RID (rail). Our hazard labels are of high quality and naturally comply with all applicable requirements including the special requirements in the IMDG code.

We offer hazard labels for the labelling of parcels (10X10 cm) as well as vehicles and containers (25X25 cm). For some hazard classes we also offer hazard labels for labelling very small parcels (5X5 cm) which are useful in situations where 10X10 cm hazard labels are too large.
