Safety cabinets protect flammables and hazardous chemicals from fire with their fire-resistant design. Justrite safety cabinets feature exclusive Haz-Alert™ warning labels. These help firefighters identify what hazards they may encounter as they extinguish the fire.
What is a Haz-Alert Safety Label?
Justrite Haz-Alert safety labels are reflective when illuminated with a flashlight. This is beneficial during power outages or in fire conditions where smoke hampers visibility. Haz-Alert safety labels provide warnings in English, Spanish and French.
Where are Haz-Alert Safety Labels Placed?
A hazard warning label is required by OSHA and NFPA. Haz-Alert warning labels inform all workers to the contents of a safety cabinet. Safety labels are placed on the front of the cabinet, near the top. Justrite applies the labels during the manufacturing process so that all units are uniform.
Many Justrite safety cabinets also have a Haz-Alert safety band label located near the base of the cabinet. These labels warn firefighters crawling through smoke filled rooms about the contents of the safety cabinets.
What are the Different Types of Haz-Alert Safety Labels?
Haz-Alert safety labels describe the type of chemical or dangerous material inside a safety cabinet. They provide warnings for three main types of hazard:
- FLAMMABLE - Indicates chemicals that ignite easily. These chemicals meet the class or category criteria of NFPA 30 and OSHA 29.
- ACID - Indicates corrosive acids that may cause chemical burns when they contact the skin.
- HAZARDOUS - Indicates acids, bases, oxidizers or water reactive substances. These materials are highly reactive. Never store incompatible substances in the same cabinet.
Are There any Other Types of Safety Labels?
Justrite hazardous material safety cabinets come with a Haz-Alert warning label indicating Hazardous-Keep Fire Away, as well a pack of 10 standard labels to identify specific contents:
- Flammable Solid
- Organic Peroxide
Lithium-Ion Battery labels are also available. A supplemental 10-pack label kit can be used as either a replacement when additional application-specific labels are needed for Justrite's hazardous material cabinets (royal blue), or to retrofit an existing Justrite steel corrosive cabinet (light blue).
