GHS label printers integrate GHS-compatible labelling hardware and software into conveniently sized printers that work to facilitate the efficient in-home, bulk production of labels. Introduction of America’s GHS reformation in 2012 became a motivating factor for companies to take on the task of producing innovative GHS label printers, a niche market that would only continue to grow in lieu of OSHA’s recently passed compliance deadlines. Lexmark, Epson, Brady, Durafast, and several other companies have all worked to produce proprietary GHS label printers, each differing in the type of printing and labelling technology utilized.

Epson’s ‘Colourworks C831’ for example uses innovative, pigment-based, inkjet technology for printing full-coloured, custom designed labels on high-grade, wide format, blank label sheets.Brady’s, ‘BBP85 Sign and Label Printer’ comes equipped with cutting edge, multicolor, thermal transfer-technology and built-in GHS label creation software. Although expensive, it serves as an efficient means for high-volume label printing by simplifying the labelling design process through use of blank label sheets, pre-printed with red diamonds. Other options include color laser, laser monochrome, and single thermal-transfer technologies, each of which confer differing advantages and disadvantages as GHS label printers.
