The New GHS System - The Globally Harmonized System (GHS) is a worldwide initiative to promote standard
criteria for classifying chemicals according to their health, physical and environmental hazards. This system uses pictograms,
hazard statements, and signal words like "Danger" and "Warning" to better communicate Hazard Information
on product labels and safety data sheet in a logical and comprehensive way. The consistent and widespread use of this new
GHS system will lead to a better protected worker, a safer workplace and a cleaner environment.
Each GHS Label is designed with specific information in mind - and relies on data from the products Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
