Globally Harmonized System

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires companies to follow the globally harmonized system (GHS) for classifying and labeling chemicals. If you handle chemicals on campus, read and follow the brief on chemical labels and pictographs (PDF) and chemical safety data sheets. You can also print quick reference cards on pictograms (PDF), labels (PDF) and safety data sheets (PDF).

For more information or to test your GHS/hazard communication knowledge, access the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) website.
