Brady Worldwide Inc.
Creating GHS labels is now amazingly simple. Brady has taken a closer look at the process in making a GHS label and recreated the critical pieces of that experience. It starts with the data from your SDS sheets. Enter the data one time, and you can create any size label and print it at any time. Using Brady Workstation, you will have access to download it on any computer and open a label file through the Custom Designer app. All you need to do is share your file via your favorite sharing tool.
