Globally Harmonized System
Chemical manufacturers are supplying products all over the world, so we all need to "speak the same language."
To that end, the United Nations introduced the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS), and OSHA has revised its Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) to align with it.
Now, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs) are standardized Safety Data Sheets (SDSs), and chemical labeling has changed to include signal words, pictograms, and hazard and precautionary statements.
GHS affects all of us, and Fisher Scientific has you covered. Training programs and materials, resources and products that comply with the new requirements are accessible in one place: right here!
