What is GHS?
The GHS is an acronym for The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals. The GHS is a system for standardizing and harmonizing the classification and labelling of chemicals. It is a logical and comprehensive approach to:
- Defining health, physical and environmental hazards of chemicals;
- Creating classification processes that use available data on chemicals for comparison with the defined hazard criteria; and
- Communicating hazard information, as well as protective measures, on labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS).
OSHA may issue a citation for each occurrence of improperly labeled chemicals as a hazard communication violation. Yikes. Don’t be the company that gets fined for improper labeling of chemicals. It’s so easy when CHEMWISE can step in and take care of the labeling for you!
