Finding the Harmonization in GHS

Earn 1 Contact Hour

This free webinar is sponsored by Sphera

The GHS is not as harmonized as many of us may have hoped.  With all the countries who have currently implemented GHS, along with those that are coming up, are there ways to create a ‘harmonized’ SDS or label?  The world is becoming smaller and where we used to divide the planet up into regions, maybe we should look at it differently.  In this webinar we will look at different ways to create harmonized SDSs across multiple countries and ask questions on where a pragmatic view to SDS/Label creation might help make processes more efficient.



Learning Objectives

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • Identify some of the similarities and differences between different GHS implementations. 

  • Apply the building blocks of GHS in a more pragmatic efficient way.

  • Analyze the risks & impacts on decisions taken to harmonize hazard communications across jurisdictions.
