Globally Harmonized System (GHS)
Make sure your facility is compliant with GHS - the new global standard for chemical hazard identification.
- Identification of health, physical and environmental hazards.
- Creation of a classification procedure using information on chemicals for comparison with the identified hazard measures.
- Communication of these hazard information and development of a system to protect people from workplace hazards.
The purpose of GHS is to simplify chemical hazard identification, especially during shipping and transport, regardless of spoken language. This new system seeks to accomplish this through a homogenized set of GHS Pictograms, GHS Labels, GHS Signs, and GHS Safety Data Sheets.
