HazCom, GHS & SDS's
More on GHS
This film is a revised version of ‘Scratch and Sniff – chemical risks at work’ produced in 2003. It introduces changes to harmonise the signs (pictograms) used in the transport of dangerous goods and the signs used in product classification, labelling and packaging (CLP) of chemicals.
Information on hazard communication and global harmonization, including access to free webinars.
Chemical manufacturers and importers now must provide a label that includes a signal word (such as “Danger” or “Warning”), pictogram, hazard statement, and precautionary statement for each hazard class and category.
This site, provided by the United National Economic Commission for Europe, addresses the Globally Harmonized System including presentations, pictograms, implementation schedule, offical text and more.
The purpose of this document is to describe the United Nations Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), why it was developed, and how it relates to the sound management of chemicals.
