GLOBALLY HARMONIZED SYSTEM OF CLASSIFICATION WITH LABELING OF CHEMICALS (ENGLISH)
OSHA is requiring that employees are trained on the new label elements (i.e., pictograms, hazard statements, precautionary statements, and signal words) and SDS format by December 1, 2013, while full compliance with the final rule will begin in 2015.
Pictogram: a symbol plus other graphic elements, such as a border, background pattern, or color that is intended to convey specific information about the hazards of a chemical. Each pictogram consists of a different symbol on a white background within a red square frame set on a point (i.e. a red diamond).
There are nine pictograms under the GHS to convey the health, physical and environmental hazards. The final Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires eight of these pictograms, the exception being the environmental pictogram, as environmental hazards are not within OSHA's jurisdiction.
IDEAL FOR: Hospitals, science laboratories in educational institutions, chemical companies (i.e. exterminators) gardeners, and for general businesses wherein employees are exposed to hazardous materials.
