Get Harmonized with GHS
Learn the United Nations’ Globally Harmonized System (GHS) approach to chemical hazard identification.
Ready to go global?
GHS provides a consistent framework for classifying and labeling hazardous chemicals. The U.N. built it for easy adoption anywhere in the world, and many nations have already incorporated GHS into their own laws. But the international scope of the system, and its periodic revisions, have led to some confusion and concern. How can you be sure your facility is on board with the global approach?
This guide explains the GHS approach to chemical classification, the elements of a compliant Safety Data Sheet (SDS), and how those components come together to create the building blocks of an effective chemical label. It also includes the most recent changes from GHS Revision 6, and can serve as part of a complete GHS training program.
