Globally Harmonized System Overview

The Globally Harmonized System for the Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS) was developed by the United Nations in an effort to better align regulations and standards governing the handling and transport of hazardous materials across different countries. Several U.S. agencies, including the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), have incorporated key elements of the GHS into their regulations. These updates have brought noticeable changes to how hazards may be defined, classified, handled, and communicated, specifically with regard to safety labels and safety data sheets.
