At this time of year as we turn our attention to warmer weather, blooming flowers and the renewal of nature, it’s appropriate to give renewed focus to the subject of safety. While safety and compliance go hand in hand, safety is a topic that spans virtually every industry and market. It impacts every human being in some way, whether at home, in the workplace, or in public spaces.
Safety doesn’t occur naturally. It’s something that must be taught, cultivated, encouraged, practiced and repeatedly reinforced. This is done in various ways through various channels. Labels are one of the most obvious and ubiquitous channels. Labels put safety messaging literally in the hands of users, consumers, workers and handlers of products that have potential safety risks if not used properly, or, in the case of a hazardous material, released or spilled into the environment.
Labels convey safety information in a unique way because they “ride” on the object that the safety messaging pertains to. By utilizing an on-demand label printing platform and process, businesses have the greatest flexibility to tailor their safety messaging to specific audiences, and they can vary or change the messaging in the blink of an eye. This is especially advantageous if the safety messaging is regulatory compliance-oriented, and regulations change frequently.
On-premise, on-demand label printing has significant advantages to businesses over pre-printed labels. Pre-printed labels must be purchased in minimum order quantities which are typically inventoried until used. If the label content changes, then the inventoried pre-printed labels immediately become obsolete and must be re-ordered.
- On-demand label printing eliminates wasted labels, therefore, it’s more cost-effective.
- On-demand label printing eliminates lead times associated with outside printer scheduling, setup and delivery.
- On-demand label printing is more efficient because you print only the labels you need, when they are needed, and where they are needed.
- On-demand label printing provides maximum flexibility in rapidly printing labels for different products and container sizes using one on-premise printer platform.
