Beginning August 30, 2018, in the United States, California Proposition 65 Legislation requires all businesses and industries selling products in California to include warning labels if there is potential exposure to one or more of the 900 chemicals on their list. These chemicals that are "known to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm" require clear warnings on products and facilities. Hypertherm is complying with the law and because we sell in a global supply chain, we are affixing the warning to products sold globally. As always, we encourage our customers to use our equipment properly, including the use of ventilation and PPE during cutting, to help ensure a safe working environment.
