When it comes to handling chemicals, whether it is for the first time or the hundredth time, safety should always be a top priority. One crucial, and required, aspect of chemical safety is the use of Globally Harmonized System (GHS) labels. But why are GHS labels so important?

  1. Standardized Communication - By using specific symbols, signal words, and hazard statements, these labels ensure that everyone, regardless of their location or language, can easily understand the potential risks associated with a particular chemical.
  2. Protecting Workers - Accidents involving chemicals can have serious consequences, ranging from minor skin irritation to life-threatening situations. GHS labels play a crucial role in preventing such accidents by providing essential information about the proper handling, storage, and disposal of chemicals.
  3. Emergency Response - GHS labels clearly state the required first aid measures if a worker accidentally comes into contact with a chemical. This allows for immediate intervention and emergency response.

These are just a few reasons why all hazardous chemicals need to have a GHS label. Because of the fact that just one GHS label needs several required bits of information, the process can become stressful quickly! Each of your GHS labels requires the following points of information:

  • The product name
  • The address and telephone number of the manufacturer
  • The product identifier
  • Signal Word(s)
  • Hazard Statement(s)
  • Precautionary Statement(s)
  • Any of 986,409 combinations of pictograms
