Are you ready for GHS?
18/10/2016
GHS is the new system for naming and labelling chemicals that is being introduced globally. The deadline for compliance is January 1st, 2017.






GHS is the new system for naming and labelling chemicals that is being introduced globally. The deadline for compliance is January 1st, 2017.

What is GHS?
The Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS), is the use of internationally consistent terms and information for chemical labels and Safety Data Sheets. By providing an international system of chemical hazard communication, the GHS system is designed to enhance the protection of human health and the environment.

Why GHS?
Created by the United Nations as a single worldwide methodology for chemical classification, labelling, and SDS, GHS ensures that this uniformity will make it easier to recognise chemicals and hazards, therefore taking the appropriate preventative and protective measure to ensure health and safety.

What is changing?
GHS is updating the way information regarding hazards and precautions surrounding safe storage, and handling and disposal of chemicals is conveyed to users.
Nine new pictograms are being introduced which represent the physical, health, and environmental hazards users may face when working with chemicals.

Who will GHS affect?
For manufacturers, importers, and suppliers of hazardous chemicals, GHS will require that all chemicals be correctly classified and labelled according to guidelines.
End users will be required to ensure that from 1 January 2017 onwards, only hazardous chemicals correctly classified and labelled in accordance to GHS be accepted and supplied.
 
For more information on how Accumax Global can help you become GHS compliant, call to talk to one of our Safety Signs experts on 08 9350 811, or visit our GHS Signs & Labels page.
