Transport Hazard Pictograms

Currently the chemicals are widespread and used in various spheres of human life activity. But despite a wide positive impact, they conceal many dangers and threats for the health and safety of people and environment. In this regard, in a number of countries were developed special laws, rules and systems of warning signs to inform about the dangers of used and transported chemical goods. However, a variety of chemicals types, their common use to improve the quality of life and the increasing of scope of international trade of chemical products led to the need of development a unified system of notations and worldwide classification of chemicals and hazards.

The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) developed and approved by UN contains the set of agreed icons, which transmit the information about the danger of various chemical goods. These icons are used at the storage, working and transportation of different chemicals and chemical materials. Depending on the purpose of application the icons are classified by types. At the transportation the dangerous goods is used a separate group of transport icons.

The transport pictograms are divided for 9 classes: class 1 — explosives, class 2 — gases, class 3 — flammable liquids, class 4 — flammable solids and substances liable to spontaneous combustion, class 5 — oxidizing substances and oxidizing peroxides, class 6 — toxic and infectious substances, class 7 — radioactive materials, class 8 — corrosive substances, class 9 — other dangerous substances and articles, including the substances dangerous for environment. Each transport pictogram is represented by diamond shape with image of symbol of danger placed on a contrasting background (except the icons for subclasses 1.4, 1.5, 1.6) and with indication of hazard class and subclass, and may also contain additional warning words. The use of unified system of transport hazard symbols allows to reduce the risk at the transportation the chemical products, to alert efficiently about the danger, to improve the system of protection the human health and environment, to increase the safety of trade the chemicals, the danger of which is evaluated with taking into account the international norms and rules.

The Transport Hazard Pictograms solution includes large variety of specially developed samples with transport hazard symbols and pictograms, and the whole set of predesigned vector transport GHS pictograms download and used with ease from the Transport Hazard Pictograms library. Apply them for designing professional-looking infographics and diagrams for warning signboards and announcements that can be used on all stages of the transportation process, for placement them on the transport vehicles, warehouses of transportation companies, at the transport documentation, and on the websites of transport and logistics companies.


There is 1 library containing 43 vector shapes in the Transport Hazard Pictograms solution.
