Dangerous Good Information

When purchasing products designated as Dangerous Goods, it is important to understand that they need to be handled with care. 

Melbourne solvent's labels  are compliant to the 
Globally Harmonised System(GHS) which was implemented from the 1st January 2017. The purpose of the GHS is to communicate and classify chemical hazards that are found on the chemical’s Safety Data Sheet.

What is a Safety Data Sheet (SDS)? 

The SDS is a document which provides important information on chemical safety, disposal, properties, transport and more. It is important to have a hard copy of your product’s SDS so that you are able to handle appropriately and treat in case of an emergency. You can request an SDS by mailing us on 

What do those symbols on the labels mean?

The symbols/pictograms are graphic images that immediately show the user of a hazardous product what type of hazard is present. With a quick glance, you can see, for example, that the product is flammable, or if it might be a health hazard.


We hope that this information is helpful to keep you safe and prepared in case of any unfortunate accidents.
