Meaning of Hazard Labelling on Cleaning Products

Posted in Cleaning Advice on January 01, 2019

What Do the Safety Statements on Labels Mean? 

When you are reading the labels of Kiwicare, or other home and garden products, there is a lot of information and some of it may be a little confusing. What do those symbols mean? What do words such as Warning, Caution or Danger mean? What do the other statements mean?

The New Zealand Environmental Protection Authority regulates the production and sale of substances that have hazards and the information that must be on labels of these substances.

Here you will find a useful guide to the meanings of symbols, words and statements found on the labels of hazardous substances.
