what does the label contain

In addition to the pictograms, the label contains an explanation of what it means (hazard statement). The same pictogram might have multiple hazard statements associated with the effects that the substance or mixture might cause. For example, the exclamation mark symbol might mean that the substance or mixture may cause respiratory irritation or that it may cause serious eye irritation or skin irritation. You will also find precautionary statements on the label, which indicate how to handle the product safely and what measures you should take if you are exposed to the product by accident. The label also contains a "signal word" that indicates the severity of the damage a product may cause: ‘Danger' for more severe damage and ‘Warning' for less severe.

Products containing these labels may cause harm if not handled correctly. Make sure you learn what the labels mean and read the instructions to ensure safe use.
