Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals

Australia has been phasing in the new Globally Harmonised System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals, or GHS, for the last five years and this transition period ended on 31 December 2016.

This video steps businesses through how to comply with the new requirements and describes:

  • what the GHS is and who it affects
  • the benefits of the new system
  • the changes you will see on workplace chemical labels and safety data sheets
  • how manufacturers, importers and suppliers can implement the GHS, and
  • how workplaces can prepare for the new system.
