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.
The Redstone Group has generated thousands of Safety Data Sheets in over 25 jurisdictions in 30 languages.
