Globally Harmonized System (GHS)

Globally Harmonized System (GHS) logo

The Globally Harmonized System (GHS), a United Nations initiative recently adopted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, will standardize the way chemical-based hazards are communicated to workers, primarily through labeling and safety data sheets. Integration of the GHS at Army locations will be completed through several phases, training being the first. Leaders and managers will have until Dec. 1, 2013, to ensure their Soldiers and employees are trained to standard on new label elements and safety data sheet format. Implementation of all GHS requirements must be completed by June 1, 2016.
