Responsible employers use Brother labellers

Product Manager, Brother UK

Being a responsible employer is a duty that’s felt particularly strongly by British businesses.

As well as running a successful company that creates jobs, you’re trusted to make sure your employees are safe at work.

Whatever premises you operate from, it’s up to you to make sure internal policies are followed, health and safety standards are met, and insurance cover is not invalidated.

That means making sure safety equipment and any potential risks are clearly identified.

Durable labels on demand

Customised information signs can help avoid errors and make sure staff stay safe when using equipment from generators and machine tools, to Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems.

Brother’s P-touch range of handheld and desktop label printers are widely used by facilities managers to produce bright, durable labels from 6mm to 36mm wide to clearly identify any hazards, as well as fire equipment and alarm systems. 

For larger safety signage, up to a metre in length and 62mm wide, we’ve developed our QL label printers range, which comes with built-in editing software.

These versatile printers have applications beyond just health and safety, as they can also be used to create custom shipping and barcode labels too.

Ensuring safety, improving efficiency

In any workplace, having key information quickly to hand is also crucial. Clear labelling means you can locate important items quickly, like files and folders, IT equipment, stationery and other assets.

Brother’s wireless label printers are a convenient solution, using Wi-Fi or Bluetooth to seamlessly connect to an Apple or Android tablet or smartphone.

Using one of our free apps, a swipe on a screen is all it takes to start creating and printing professional labels.

Electrical and network infrastructure expertise

Outside the office, we’ve developed a specialty in handheld label printers for the electrical and network infrastructure sectors, supporting compliance with wiring regulations and increasing productivity while working on site.

Our flagship PT-E550W model creates simple ID labels or more detailed warning and guidance notices at speed.

It can be used as a stand-alone label printer, or can print directly from a smartphone or tablet using the free Mobile Cable Label Tool app, which includes a range of customisable templates for cable, patch panel, faceplate and network equipment identification to make sure it complies with IET Wiring Regulations. 

It’s designed to dramatically speed up the labeling process and gives a truly professional result, even incorporating your company logo with contact details and enabling the use of barcodes.

But our label printers are just part of the story - we put just as much effort into developing our tapes and labels.

Innovative supplies for every application

We’ve tested our labels to the extreme to make sure they can handle the most demanding environments.

And we’ve developed specialist products, like heat shrink tube tape for permanently identifying cables and wires, and tamper-proof labelling tape that leaves a distinctive checkerboard pattern if anyone tries to interfere with it - ideal for electrical safety test labels or sealing confidential files.

All this means that Brother has a label printer and tape supplies for just about every application you can think of.

That’s what’s made us the go-to labelling solution for businesses across the UK and beyond.
