Simplified labelling of laboratory containers

The The Subcommittee “Laboratories“ of the Expert Committee “Raw materials and chemical industry“ of the DGUV has developed a simplified system for storage bottles in laboratories, taking into account the new labelling system in line with the CLP regulation.

Overview of the pictogram-phrase combinations for laboratories of the DGUV

Combinations of pictograms and phrases make up the core element of this system. The information content of the H-statements is condensed and conveyed in the form of phrases. One way the system can be applied is in the form of sheets of self-adhesive pictograms bearing the phrases.

A selection of commonly and less commonly needed combinations of pictograms and phrases suitable for use in laboratories can be printed on a single sheet and can therefore be easily made available on site. Further information can be found in annex 4 of  "Working safely in laboratories".

Online access to "Working safely in laboratories" is offered here.
