Summary "Every year, vast quantities of chemicals are sold and shipped, for use in workplaces around the world. And, with a global level of trade comes a need to ensure that the hazards pertaining to chemical products are clearly communicated - regardless of where in the world those products are being put to use. While national laws and regulations relating to chemicals may be similar, they are often different enough to require multiple sets of Labels, Safety Data Sheets, and other information when being traded internationally. All this creates the potential for confusion which, when dealing with hazardous chemicals could have disastrous consequences in the workplace. Developed at the UN level, the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (or GHS for short) aims to develop a single, globally harmonised system to address: Classification of chemicals, and Hazard Communication, through: Labels, and Safety Data Sheets."--Publisher's website
