Dangerous Goods Signs & Labels

Dangerous goods are substances or articles with hazardous properties which may if handled incorrectly, explode, asphyxiate (choke), burn, make explosive mixtures, poison, eat skin or metal, pollute the environment, or become unstable if mixed or exposed to other products.

For ease of identification of dangerous goods, the international community has created a classification system. All dangerous goods are included in one of nine primary classes.
