If you are a manufacturer, supplier or user of chemicals you are required to comply with laws and regulations for the classification and labeling of hazardous materials known as Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). It is a single unified approach to classifying chemical hazards, designating warning labels, and organizing information on safety data sheets. The purpose of this system is to make it easy to identify chemicals and potential hazards when chemicals are shipped all over the world, regardless of spoken language. Hazard communication now lies in standard symbols that eliminate confusion.
According to OSHA, this system includes: Identifying health, physical and environmental hazards, Creating a classification process that uses information on chemicals for comparison with the identified hazard measures and Communication hazard information as well as a way to protect oneself from the hazard on labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS).
Seton offers a variety of signs, labels, tapes and posters to meet these new regulations.
