DESCRIPTION OF ISSUE:
Can “Warning” or “Danger”be used in lieu of “Caution” in the supplementary marking?
The use of the word “Warning” or “Danger” can be used in place of the word “Caution” in the supplementary marking. In addition, if the supplementary marking is provided in the user’s instructions as part of the explanation of graphical symbols, clause 5.3, the supplementary marking in the user’s instructions shall contain the same signal word that is used in the supplementary marking on the product.
The word “Caution” is the lowest of the three signal words (Caution, Warning and Danger) with “Danger” being the highest. Therefore, whenever the work “Caution” is used, it may be replaced with either of the higher rated signal words; “Warning” or “Danger.”
