OSHA GHS – Keeping up with the changes


The U.S. Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) has made the largest change to their Hazardous Communication regulation since its introduction in 1983.

According to OSHA, GHS is an acronym for The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals. The GHS is a system for standardizing and harmonizing 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).
