Hazmat shippers often ask us—Where can I find the right hazmat labels?
Today, we have the answer.
On Monday, January 6, Lion launched an online store to offer hazmat labels and placards.
At Lion.com/Products, you will now find hazmat labels and placards for each DOT Hazard Class/Division, 1-9. New lithium battery marks and labels required as of January 1, 2019 are also available in the store. In addition, shippers will find hazmat labels for limited quantities, Cargo Aircraft Only shipments, marine pollutants, temperature-sensitive goods, magnetized materials, and much more.
At Lion, our prime objective has always been to simplify regulatory compliance for industry professionals. By offering hazmat labels and placards, we've made Lion.com your one-stop-shop for the hazmat training, consulting, and products you need.
The hazmat labels and placards Lion offers are made from durable, weather-resistant materials to withstand the rigors of transport. Printed with fade-resistant, ultraviolet inks, these labels and placards will remain bright, noticeable, and compliant throughout the supply chain. All labels and placards are designed to conform to domestic and international hazmat/dangerous goods standards.
Why the Right Hazmat Labels and Placards Matter
Hazmat labels and placards play a monumental role in the safe transportation of hazardous materials. In the United States, the 49 CFR Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) require hazmat shippers to properly mark and label all packages containing regulated materials.
Proper hazmat labels are also mandatory under international requirements like the IATA Dangerous Goods Regulations (for air shipments) and the IMDG Code (for vessel shipments).
Hazmat labels and placards inform employees, emergency responders, and supply chain personnel about the hazards and volume of the materials in the package. In an emergency, this information helps responders protect themselves, plan the response, and effectively bring the hazard under control.
Using the right hazmat labels and placards is critical to avoid shipping delays, rejected packages, and civil penalties from US DOT now as high as $81,993 per day, per violation.
