Space Constraint of GHS Labels to Hamper the Growth

Globally harmonized system labels are indicators for potential harms that can be caused by the mishandling of the particular chemical or commodity. But sizes of GHS labels varies commodity wise.Some commodities are packed in a smaller packaging to save packaging costs, but information for hazards may be more than the space available. In that cases the information is depicted in smaller or hardly visible sizes, which does not fulfills the safety requirement needed for hazardous chemical, and may result in loss of life or property.

The GHS labels with incomplete information are more harmful and potential to cause more danger while usage or handling of the harmful chemicals. The important and most harmful dangers are listed on the label, but the dangers which are less likely are not listed on the labels.

  • For example:- A chemical drum or bottle packed by manufacturer is small in size, which may not allow to label or showcase in a pictorial manner about all the potential harms that mishandling of that products may result in to.
  • Due to limited space it is possible that only most harmful hazards are listed, but due to partial listing of hazards there may be an, loss of live or property during the usage or handling of chemicals with partial information on it.
