GHS
The Globally Harmonized System of Labeling and Packaging

GHS is an acronym for The Globally Harmonized System of Labeling and Packaging. It is a standardized system created by the United Nations for:

  • classifying hazardous chemicals
  • preparation of safety data sheets
  • preparation of labels

The prescriptive system for classification, data sheets and labels is a marked difference from the existing performance-based OSHA hazard communication standard.
