Based on:

  • OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (HCS)
  • Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS)

Languages: English

People commonly work near or with many different hazardous chemicals. Pesticides, paints, solvents, acids, gasoline, compressed gases such as propane, and liquid cleaning products such as bleach are just a few of the hazardous chemicals workers can be exposed to on a regular basis. To ensure workers are provided with sufficient information to understand the hazards of the chemicals they work with, OSHA maintains a Hazard Communication Standard (HCS). Hazardous material labeling is a key element of the HCS. This module will cover the labeling requirements of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) and alternative workplace labeling options.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe the purpose of HazCom 2012 and the GHS
  • Identify and describe the elements of GHS hazard labels
  • Describe the requirements of hazardous material labeling in the workplace

Key Questions

The following key questions are answered in this module:

What information is required on GHS labels?
GHS labels must include product identification information, supplier identification information, pictograms, signal words (Danger or Warning), hazard statements, and precautionary statements.

What are hazard statements?
Hazard statements describe the nature of the hazards. They are specific phrases that are assigned to a chemical based on its hazard classes and categories.

What are precautionary statements?
Precautionary statements list recommended actions to prevent or minimize adverse effects of hazardous chemical exposure.

What do the signal words mean?
Danger is used for severe hazards and Warning is used for less severe hazards.

Are GHS labels required on chemicals in the workplace?
No. GHS labels can be used, but employers can use other labels as long as they include product identification, appropriate hazard warnings, and the name and address of the chemical manufacturer or importer.

Sample Video Transcript

Below is a transcript of the video sample provided for this module:

Standard labeling makes it easier for workers to understand hazards and how to protect themselves. Employers can choose to use GHS compliant shipping labels or an alternative workplace labeling program to communicate chemical hazards to employees. A label must identify the hazardous chemical, communicate appropriate warnings, and provide the name and address of the chemical supplier.
