The 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 What are the benefits? The basic goal of hazard communication is to ensure that employers, employees and the public are provided with adequate, practical, reliable and comprehensible information on the hazards of chemicals, so that they can take effective preventive and protective measure for their health and safety. Thus, implementation of effective hazard communication provides benefits for governments, companies, workers, and members of the public. Benefits to companies include: • A safer work environment and improved relations with employees, • An increase in efficiency and reduced costs from compliance with hazard communication regulations, • Application of expert systems resulting in maximizing expert resources and minimizing labor and costs, • Facilitation of electronic transmission systems with international scope, • Expanded use of training programs on health and safety, • Reduced costs due to fewer accidents and illnesses, • Improved corporate image and credibility. Benefits to workers and members of the public include: • Improved safety for workers and others through consistent and simplified communications on chemical hazards and practices to follow for safe handling and use, • Greater awareness of hazards, resulting in safer use of chemicals in the workplace and in the home.
