  6. 6. Hazard PictogramsNine pictogramshazard symbols: health, physical & environmental hazardsSymbol plus border= pictogram(square set at a point)Use depends on class andcategory. None may exist forsome products. Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety www.ccohs.ca
  7. 7. Signal WordsSignal words warn users about the level or degree of hazard. There are two signal words: Danger Warning Use depends on class and category. No signal word may be required. Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety www.ccohs.ca
  8. 8. Hazard StatementsStandardized statements about chemical hazards Statements are listed by “letter/numbers” to signify • physical (H200’s) • health (H300’s) and • environmental hazards (H400’s) Use depends on hazard class and category. Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety www.ccohs.ca
  9. 9. Precautionary StatementsStandardized statements These are organizedproviding advice and guidance into groupsto support safe workplace General (P100’s)practices.GHS still improving these (use Prevention (P200’s)is recommended, not required) Response (P300’s) Storage (P400’s)Combinations may be specified Disposal (P500’s)e.g. P370+P380:In case of fire: Evacuate area Use depends on hazard class and category. Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety www.ccohs.ca
  10. 10. Label elements:If a product meets criteria for a hazard class and category – the data above is specified and required = pictogram, signal word and hazard statement. GHS provides suggested precautionary measures for labels and SDSs. Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety www.ccohs.ca
  11. 11. Creating a GHS Label for “Cleans Super Great”First step is to classify review ingredients/composition, look at hazard data, and identify the hazard classification.Our product is a concentrated cleaning product containing a ketone, petroleum distillate, terpene – lots of hazards.We evaluated the details and determined the classification.Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety www.ccohs.ca
