The website safety.blr.com has a short piece on GHS:
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) is a coherent approach to defining and classifying chemical hazards and communicating that information, according to presenters at a recent audio conference sponsored by the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE).
Mary Frances Lowe of EPA’s Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP), and Jennifer Silk, an occupational safety and health consultant who recently retired from OSHA, detailed the various elements of GHS and what the U.S. government is doing to implement the system.
GHS elements include classification criteria for health, environmental, and physical hazards for all hazardous chemical substances, dilute solutions, and mixtures. In addition, the system establishes criteria for hazard communication through labels and safety data sheets.
