Hazard Communication - GHS & SDS

Updated at January 09, 2022

The Global Harmony System (GHS)

The GHS is an acronym for The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals.

This system was created to standardize the classification and labeling 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).

The above information was taken directly from the OSHA website. 


GHS Label Example:


Safety Data Sheets (SDS)

This list is always growing!
