Depending on the products you produce and where they are ultimately shipped and used, you may be required to have various safety labels attached to them. While care must be taken to follow OSHA’s regulations, if your products will be produced or sold in California, you’ll also need to consider their list of chemicals that require warnings.

California Prop 65 and Safety Labels

While Prop 65, also known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act, doesn’t ban products with these chemicals, it does require that you include visible warnings, so consumers can decide for themselves if they want to risk exposure. It is critical to stay up to date with this growing list of chemicals that numbers more than 850 at the current time.

For safety labels to comply with Prop 65, they must include the appropriate warning symbol as well as the potential dangers of exposure to the utilized chemical. The type size must also comply in that it must be at least 6-point and as large as other information on the packaging. In some situations, you are permitted to use truncated safety labels.
