WHMIS: GHS Classification & Communication


The standards for classifying and communicating chemical hazards have generally varied between countries and in many cases across different local regulations, which have the potential to create some significant safety issues.

In reaction to this, the United Nations has spent over 20 years developing the Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals, or GHS.
