The European Union lays down a number of requirements workplaces need to comply with in order to avoid workplace accidents and protect workers. Brady offers durable solutions to quickly align any facility with these EU Directives and with national legislation.

Create a compliant workplace

By using Brady's durable pipe markers, safety signs, CLP-labels and area marking, industries can largely comply with European Union Directives 89/391/EEC to adequately protect workers, 92/58/EEC that obliges employers to provide safety signs, Directive 1272/2008 about the classification, labelling and packaging of chemicals (CLP) and national legislation. Brady's safety identification solutions are also aligned with the specifications in the relevant Annexes included with Directive 92/58/EEC.

Create a safer workplace

Safety signs, pipe markers, CLP-labels and area marking can instruct or warn co-workers about potential danger when and where they need such information the most.

  • Safety signs: communicate important information quickly and on the spot by using internationally recognised pictograms to prohibit, warn, caution, share mandatory requirements, evacuate or locate fire-fighting equipment.
  • Pipe markers: clearly communicate the content of pipes so co-workers immediately know which handles they can safely operate, and first responders know what to look out for.
  • CLP-labels: Easily identify the dangers associated with chemicals stored on the workfloor
  • Area marking: identify safe walking areas to avoid accidents between pedestrians, forklifts and other vehicles

Create an efficient workplace

Area marking, pipe markers and safety signs can also be used to increase workplace efficiency in line with 5S and lean manufacturing models:

  • Area marking: clearly identify areas so co-workers always know where they need to go, where they can find the tools they need and where to store them
  • Pipe marking: show pipe contents, flow directions, source and destination and identify which valve operates which pipe to increase the efficiency of maintenance teams
  • Safety signs: immediately show which protective gear is required so co-workers don't always need to go find the document that includes this information
