WHAT EXACTLY DOES GHS STAND FOR?
The Global Harmonization System (GHS) is a worldwide standardized approach to hazard communication, which is supported by the United Nations and regulatory agencies around the globe, including OSHA and Health Canada. In short, GHS can be summarized into three main components:
