Are You GHS Ready?

The Globally Harmonised System (GHS) of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals was adopted under WHS laws on 1st January 2012 and will be implemented on the 1st of January 2017.

The GHS uses a common set of pictograms, signal words and hazard warnings to universalise classifications to international standards for chemical classification, labelling and safety data sheets (SDS) in the workplace.

To ensure you are fully aware of your responsibilities as a supplier, manufacturer, PCBU and Officer in the workplace NSW SafeWork has developed a great information sheet called “GHS What you need to know” to assist in getting us all up to speed and ready for its implementation on 1st of January 2017.
