GHS Compliant Label Software

TEKLYNX CENTRAL GHS can help you meet Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Hazard Communication (HazCom) Standard, which incorporates the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), to improve safety and protect the health of workers within the chemical industry.

The Final Rule states that by the June 1, 2016 deadline, all employers must update alternative workplace labeling and hazard communication program and provide additional employee training for newly identified physical or health hazards.

TEKLYNX CENTRAL GHS supports chemical labeling requirements and offers maximum traceability by creating labels to accurately classify chemicals and specify HazCom elements for labeling and safety data sheets.

What is GHS?
GHS is an acronym for The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. This system is designed to standardize and harmonize the classification of labeling of chemicals. The goal is to create consistent protection for people who are potentially exposed to chemicals and simplify regulations for companies producing chemicals. By complying with GHS, companies benefit from a safer work environment, an increase in efficiency and reduced costs through compliance with hazard communication regulations, and a simplified international transmission process.
Are all chemicals covered by the GHS?
Yes – this classification process, which is designed to identify possible hazards associated with substances, products, mixtures, preparations, or any other compound, helps companies convey information about the hazards associated with these chemicals.
What technology does TEKLYNX CENTRAL GHS use for enterprise label management and printing?
The label design component of TEKLYNX CENTRAL GHS is powered by CODESOFT and the label management module is powered by LABEL ARCHIVE. The browser-based printing interface is powered by LABELNET, while the central print management is powered by SENTINEL.
What languages does CODESOFT support?
CODESOFT's interface supports Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), Chinese (Traditional), Czech, Danish, Dutch, English (United States), Estonian, Finnish, French (France), German, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese (Portugal), Romanian, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.
How is TEKLYNX CENTRAL GHS licensed?
TEKLYNX CENTRAL GHS is licensed by the number of printers, print users, label design users, and reporting users you need. After you’ve purchased TEKLYNX CENTRAL GHS, you can easily add printers and users as your company grows.
Can I centrally manage all my user licenses and rights for all components of my enterprise labeling system?
Yes, all printers, print users, label design users, and report users are managed on a single server. Authentication can be configured to use TEKLYNX user security or Windows Active Directory.
Do I need to install anything on individual workstations in order to print?
No, the browser based printing interface launches in your Internet Explorer browser, so no separate software installation is needed.
Can TEKLYNX CENTRAL GHS help manage the approval of my labels?
Yes. The label management component gives you the ability to create custom approval rules. Users can approve labels from within the label designer or through a web interface.
Can I give specific rights to different users?
Yes, you can configure users to have access to different features in TEKLYNX CENTRAL GHS, as well as configure your system to control user access to labels and printers.
Can my users visually validate labels at print time?
The browser-based printing interface displays a preview of the label directly above the Print button. If variable information is added at print time, the preview is updated to display that information.
Can I prevent users from modifying my label designs and printing unapproved labels?
The label design cannot be modified at print time. You can also configure your system to restrict user access to labels and printers to prevent printing unapproved labels.
What reporting options does TEKLYNX CENTRAL GHS offer?
Reports can be created on print history or document modification. The reports can be customized to display the most critical information for your business.
Can I track and report on my print history?
Yes, a Print History report can be generated on the server. The Print History report displays the date/time, printer, and variable information printed on the label. TEKLYNX CENTRAL GHS also logs the user, workstation, product, and work order that are associated with each print job.
What database does CENTRAL GHS use to store labels and configuration data?
The label and configuration data is stored in a Microsoft SQL database. The data that prints on the label can be queried through any OLE database connection.
Where do I manage my printers?
Printers are installed, configured, and managed on the server, giving you peace of mind that the printer settings won’t be inappropriately adjusted on individual workstations.
Can I print outside the company network?
Yes, when the browser-based printing interface is published on a public domain, users can print to printers connected to their local network. A browser-based user interface allows for label selection and true Internet printing from anywhere in the world!
