GHS Brochure


The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) regulations are being implemented around the globe.  The U.S. officially adopted the GHS on March 26, 2012. OSHA’s adoption is actually a revision of the Hazard Communication Standard to align with the GHS. OSHA calls this revision, HazCom 2012.

A three year transitional period was given to allow companies to fully implement the new standard in their facilities.   In preparation for the deadlines, manufacturers, distributors, and employers working with, storing or transporting chemicals in the U.S. started training their employees to improve safety and avoid facing possible fines from OSHA.
