Anywhere you will be, may it be in school, government agencies, hospitals, and any workplace there are chemicals that may be hazardous that needs to be carefully handled and identified for the safety of the workers and the entire community.
This is one of the purposes that the safety data sheet are being adapted to provide a comprehensive information about a substance or mixture and to communicate the potential hazards of hazardous chemical products that may be present or used like health, fire, reactivity and environmental.
From the latest study conducted from the UN, there are already more than sixty-five countries that have successfully adapted in using the Globally Harmonized System or GHS, for chemical labeling and classification to enhance classifying chemicals and determining safety procedure.
One of the major factor that this standardization is very functional and accessible is that no matter what country you are and if GHS is used then you can easily identify it even by just visual presentation, and at the same time as it aims to diminish the effects of chemicals to the environment it can also ensure the overall security and safety especially to those involved in the process of classification and labeling of chemicals.
And with everyone else following and using the same safety data sheet standardized through Globally Harmonized System it will be easier and faster to locate information and that makes it more manageable no matter if you are foreign to the country that uses it since it is generic for all to understand and comprehend.
Though at first the adaptation of GHS may be costly but in the long run it will eliminate the cost of reproducing different versions of labels especially those that are associated in international trade and at the same time it will have a good increase in the quality and consistency of information provided to workers and chemical users.
It is then an expected outcome that when the workers have better comprehension with what is being dealt with the proper handling and use of chemicals are guaranteed and that will also lead to the effect of lessened if not eradicated possibilities of workplace incidents, fatalities, injuries, and illnesses associated with exposures to hazardous chemicals.
If you are transitioning to the GHS in your business, then you must have to get in touch with the people who have the most extensive knowledge about GHS so that you can have a more detailed information and learning about it, all the same, you can secure initially the GHS handbook and do your own internal research for added knowledge and awareness.
