Alfred University

A Globally Harmonized System (GHS)

The revised OSHA Hazard Communication Standard

Global Harmonization System 2013

Right To Understand

Alfred university

Compliance Phase-In:

The table below summarizes the phase-in dates required under the revised Hazard Communication Standard (HCS):

Alfred university

Major changes to the Hazard Communication Standard:

Hazard classification:

Chemical manufacturers and importers are required to determine the hazards of the chemicals they produce or import. Hazard classification under the new, updated standard provides specific criteria to address health and physical hazards as well as classification of chemical mixtures.


Chemical manufacturers and importers must provide a label that includes a signal word, pictogram, hazard statement, and precautionary statement for each hazard class and category.

Safety Data Sheets:

The new format requires 16 specific sections, ensuring consistency in presentation of important protection information.

Information and training:

To facilitate understanding of the new system, the new standard requires that workers be trained by December 1, 2013 on the new label elements and safety data sheet format, in addition to the current training requirements.

Alfred university

Keys Words (Terminology)

Class the hazard or hazards assigned to a product, or inherent properties, which are identified as physical, health, and environmental.

Category the degree of danger represented by the hazard of a particular product, these range from category 1, great danger to category 5, low danger.

Product Identifier chemical name or trade name or proper shipping name.

Safety Data Sheet (SDS) analogous to MSDS in the U.S. These are sheets or a booklet that describe the hazards of the product, and give details about safe handling and responding to emergencies.

Alfred university

Pictogram the symbol or sign used to identify the class (hazard(s)) assigned to a product on the warning label. There are 9 pictograms.

Signal Word is the word Danger or Warning that will appear as part of the warning label. Indicates the degree of hazard the product possesses.

Hazard Statements are standardized statements that will appear as part of the hazard communication system identifying just what hazards the user should be aware of.

Precautionary Statements are standardized statements (and/or pictogram) which describe recommended measures that should be taken to minimize adverse effects resulting from exposures to a hazardous product, or improper storage or handling of a hazardous product.

Alfred university

GHS Classification:

Three basic classes of hazards:

Physical – e.g. flammability or reactivity

Health – immediate and long-term toxicity

Environmental – toxicity to aquatic organisms, potential to bio accumulate or persist in the environment, and things hazardous to the ozone layer.

Alfred university

Physical Hazards:

  • Explosives

  • Flammable Gases

  • Flammable Aerosols

  • Oxidizing Gases

  • Gases under pressure

  • Flammable liquids

  • Flammable solids

  • Self-reactive substances – thermally unstable and may break-down when heated

  • Pyrophoric liquids and solids – ignite spontaneously at room temperature or below

  • Self-heating substances – react with oxygen and start to burn

  • Water-reactive substances

  • Oxidizing liquids and solids – cause ignition of other materials by chemical reaction or increase the heat and speed of a fire

  • Organic peroxides – oxidizers with a special chemical structure that tends to make them unstable

  • Corrosives – corrosive to metal (acids or bases)

Alfred university

Health Hazards:

Acute Toxicity (immediate hazard)

  • Immediate toxicity –immediate and serious health effects possibly including death on exposure

  • Corrode or burn skin and eyes

  • Irritation (significant) to skin and eyes

    Chronic Toxicity (long-term hazard)

  • Carcinogenicity – cancer causing

  • Germ cell mutagenicity- cause mutations or genetic change to germ cells in the body

  • Reproductive toxicity – reproductive effects, e.g. birth defects or sterility

  • Skin/Respiratory sensitization – things which can cause allergic reactions to the skin or respiratory system on exposure

  • Target organ effects – certain chemicals can attack certain parts of the body either on a single exposure or repeated exposure (e.g. prolonged exposure to asbestos (lungs), many dry-cleaning chemicals attack the liver and kidneys even after a single exposure)

  • Aspiration hazards – materials entering the lungs which cause a serious inflammation called pneumonitis which can be fatal; many petroleum based products and solvents may be aspiration hazards.

Alfred university

  • Environmental Hazards:

    • Existing IMDG (International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code) Marine Pollutant criteria

    • European Union criteria used in ADR/RID transportation regulations - ADR= Agreement on Dangerous Goods by Road / RID = Regulations concerning the Intl Transport of Dangerous Goods by Rail

    • U.S. EPA hazardous substance criteria

    • Materials which are hazardous to the ozone layer

    • Aquatic hazards:

      • Acute toxicity

      • Chronic toxicity

      • Bioaccumulation – toxins accumulate faster than they can be eliminated

Alfred university


Categories 1 through 5 – similar to transportation packing group

  • Category 1 – most hazardous

  • Category 5 – least hazardous (only hazardous to vulnerable segments of population, e.g. small children or people with compromised immune systems)

    Categories may be further sub-divided, e.g. Category 1A, 1B, 1C, etc. Explosive hazards are designated by “divisions”. The less dangerous categories may not be regulated in all modes in all countries.

Example: Assigning categories using the GHS system

Note: A very small amount, 0-5 mg/kg of bodyweight (oral), of an acutely toxic substance yields an LD50 (the lethal dose kills 50 % of the tested population). This results in assigning a Category 1 – most hazardous designation. ( Example: Cyanide - )

Alfred university

GHS Label Elements:

  • Product Identifier (chemical name or trade name or proper shipping name – no chemical formulas, list hazardous ingredients where appropriate)

  • Chemical Identity (C[hemical] A[bstract] S[equencing] # if applicable) – optional on secondary labels

  • Hazard pictogram(s) – one or more

  • Signal words – either DANGER or WARNING

  • Hazard statements

  • Precautionary information – optional on secondary labels

  • Supplier Identifier (supplier information,, address, phone, etc.)

    Classification (class and category) drives labeling. Information should be conveyed in more than one way, both symbols and text.

GHS Standardized Elements:

  • Symbol (Hazard Pictogram)

  • Signal Word

  • Hazard Statements

  • Precautionary Statements

Alfred university

Signal Words:

Only two words are used, “Danger” or “Warning”, to emphasize the hazard and differentiate between the degrees of hazard. Danger is used for higher hazard materials, and Warning for lower level hazards. The use of one word excludes the use of the other.

Hazard Statement:

GHS assigns a single harmonized statement for each level of hazard within each hazard class. See Annex 3 – Section 1, of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (2011) Fourth Revised Edition. Example below:

Note: Another useful reference is Annex 1“Allocation of Label Elements”. This resource includes the label pictogram, signal word, hazard statement, and the UN Model Regulation pictogram and information.

Alfred university

Precautionary Statements:

 This element is not yet mandatory in the U.S. as of Jan 2013. Mandatory or recommended inclusion of precautionary statements on the label will be left up to the individual country. Annex 3- Section 2discusses the codification and use of precautionary statements.

Note: Only those label elements identified with a red arrow are currently required under the GHS labeling system. The chemical or product/trade name serves as the product identifier and one should identify the hazardous ingredients where appropriate.

Alfred university

  • More on Hazard Statements

  • Hazard Statements: phrase assigned to a hazard class and category which describes the nature of the hazard. Each statement will uniquely express the hazardous product, including, where appropriate, the degree of hazard.

  • FAQ:

  • What does a Hazard Code look like?

    • Each statement has a specific code associated in order to properly reference.

    • Codes will begin with a H followed by a 3 digit code “H###”

  • Where can I find further information on the different types of Hazard statements?

    • Section 1 of Annex 3 of the GHS.

    • Do I need to apply both hazard statement and code when creating a Label?

    • No. When creating a label, it is only required that the hazard statement is located on the packaging, hazard codes are optional.

  • What are the requirements for hazard statements when preparing a SDS?

    • When preparing a SDS both Hazard statements and codes are required.

  • Examples:

  • Ensure containers are labeled and that everyone knows how to read those labels;

  • Provide a written program, (located in 117 Myers Hall EH&S Office).

Alfred university

The Law

OSHA/PESH – Employees, employers, students, Hazard Communication - 29 CFR 1910.1200, respiratory protection, personal protective equipment (PPE), etc.

EPA – “cradle to the grave”, containment, storage and disposal

DEC – water, soil and air contamination

Other Government Agencies – DOH (health), FDA (food and drugs), NFPA (fire)

Alfred university

What is a Hazardous Substance?

A hazardous substance includes, (but is not limited to), products that are toxic, corrosive, flammable, reactive, irritants, oxidizers, sensitizers, explosives, or radioactive.

The key question to ask is, “Do these materials create an unusual health or safety risk through their use or storage?”

If the answer is yes, the material is likely hazardous.

NOTE: The definitions and criteria of the hazards of a substance can be found in the Globally Harmonized System Revision 4 2011 edition. Physical hazards are found in Part 2, health hazards are found in part 3, and environmental hazards are found in part 4.

Alfred university

Informing of Hazards

  • Signs – signage will inform you of hazards in your work area, especially signs containing words like danger, warning, notice, etc.

  • Labels – label information should include the product or chemical name/identifier (never use a chemical formula), signal word, pictogram(s), hazard statement(s), and manufacturer name, address and phone number.

  • Safety Data Sheet (SDS) – required by law for all manufacturers to prepare.

Alfred university

OSHA Recommendations

OSHA recommends that employers offer the following prevention strategies (listed in order of OSHA priority):

Engineering controls eliminate or reduce exposure to a chemical or physical hazard through the use or substitution of engineered machinery or equipment. Examples include self-capping syringe needles, ventilation systems such as a fume hood, sound-dampening materials to reduce noise levels, safety interlocks, and radiation shielding.

Administrative controls (or work practice controls) are changes in work procedures such as written safety policies, rules, supervision, medical surveillance and training with the goal of reducing the duration, frequency, and severity of exposure to hazardous chemicals or situations.

Alfred university

OSHA Recommendations Continued

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as safety glasses with side shields, splash goggles, face shields, chemical resistant gloves, hard hats, rubber aprons, safety shoes, respirators, & hearing protectors must be worn when required, and maintained in good condition. The employer is responsible for providing proper PPE to the employee (this does not apply to students in classes or labs).

Alfred university

Prior to Purchasing Chemicals

  • Check your chemical inventory (NOTE: chemical inventories are due to EH&S by June 15th annually).

  • Contact EH&S to see if a surplus exists for what you need.

  • Obtain and read the SDS for the chemical.

  • Know the hazards of the chemical.

  • Make sure you have a safe way to use and store the chemical.
