Danger Tactile Warning labels


Dantech Ltd is producing millions of Tactile Danger Warning labels used on packages which contain hazardous substances, as required by law, to assist blind and visually impaired people. This is as a result of the CHIP 3 regulation.

The Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 2002 (CHIP3) govern the supply of dangerous chemicals within the UK and require the suppliers of such chemicals to: 

  • classify the hazards of the chemicals,
  • provide information in the form of labels and Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) and
  • package the chemicals safely.

CHIP regulations deal with the marketing of dangerous substances (chemical elements or compounds, such as mercury or sulphuric acid); and preparations (mixtures or solutions of substances, such as paints or inks).

By law the label containing the raised triangle must be applied to all products which are classified as toxic, very toxic, corrosive, harmful, extremely flammable, highly flammable as well as on some aerosols classified as harmful, toxic or corrosive.

These warning labels are difficult to produce because they have a raised triangle above the label and they must be produced in accordance with EN ISO 11683 which clearly sets out the dimensions etc for the triangle and label. This is the same production method used to print Braille.

As a market leader in innovative label solutions Dantech is well established in the label market with an impressive range of asset labels and security marking labels.
