Dangerous burns are a very real hazard in industrial settings. Select appliances and pieces of machinery are capable of producing excessive amounts of heat, especially those with gears or rotating parts. Employees and other individuals who work around these devices require a warning tool that can alert them if the machinery is too hot to come into contact with.
A Hot Hand Temperature Indicating Label is an effective and reliable way to determine if a piece of equipment has reached a temperature that has become too dangerous to touch. Simply affix a label to any piece of equipment that has the potential to generate excessive amounts of heat. When the device is at a temperature that is safe to come into contact with, the label remains solid black. Once the temperature has reached a point of being excessively hot, the label will change to reflect an image of a hand and a flame in bright red coloring, alongside the word “HOT,” signifying that the equipment should not be touched. Once the machine has cooled off to a point of safe handling, the label will revert back to a solid black display.
The adhesive on the label is strong enough to ensure it will stay on most clean, flat surfaces and will stay in place until removed. The simple visual design makes it easy for anyone to know at a moment’s glance whether or not safe handling of the machine can be performed, and the familiar display conveys a sense of urgency, especially in situations where employees may be surrounded by multiple distractions.
