GHS Needs An 'Erin'
Since 1967, Engineered Lubricants has been an independent manufacturer of lubricants, metalworking fluids, rust preventatives and cleaners. Providing products and services across the globe, EL formulates products specific to its customers’ production requirements. EL has one of the most advanced testing laboratories in the United States, offering its customers extensive physical and analytical testing capabilities.
Almost 1.5 years prior to the deployment deadline of June 15, 2015, Erin Weber of Engineered Lubricants found Color Label Solutions, and contacted us about their requirements to produce GHS labels. At that time, Erin was “exploring the different options that are available in regards to the new labeling required by GHS. The majority of our shipments are 55 gallon drums and 5 gallon pails.” After discussing the options, I demonstrated a potential printer, producing sample GHS labels, 4” x 6” and 8” x 11”, in color and with pictograms using one their existing products.
I produced these samples using BarTender and a simple Excel database.
After seeing the demonstration/labels and testing the labels, Engineered Lubricants purchased TM-C3500 and GP-C831 printers; along with 2.25” continuous labels and 8” x 11” pinfeed labels. With the purchase, I helped Engineered Lubricants get started printing labels quickly and easily using the printers as well as BarTender.
