In the field of transport and logistics, dangerous goods are substances, preparations and objects that contain ingredients which, due to their nature or properties - whether physical or chemical - or their condition during transport, may pose certain risks to public safety or order, in particular to the general public, important public goods, human life and health, animals and property, and which are to be classified as dangerous goods by law.
Placards in large print
Placards are square, diamond-shaped stickers for transporting dangerous goods and are attached standing on their tips. The colour and number of the hazard label usually indicates the class of dangerous goods. Placards are used to mark dangerous goods on trucks. For example, the colour and the pictogram provide rescue workers with information at first glance about the expected dangers at the accident site. Placards are subject to strict legal requirements that must be strictly adhered to when printing and affixing them.
