Chemicals and the GHS

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

9:30 AM – 12:00 PM (English)


The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals, or GHS, is an international system of chemical classification, labeling, and hazard communication adopted by the United Nations in 2003. The United States participated in development of the GHS and U.S. regulatory agencies have adopted the system. Cal/OSHA revised the California Hazard Communication Standard (HazCom 2012) to conform to the GHS.
