SiteHawk’s GHS Information Center sheds light on pending GHS rollout in US


Source: SiteHawk

SiteHawk, the leading MSDS and chemical data management services provider, continues to drive industry education efforts with it’s GHS Information Center, an online resource for the latest news, updates, and compliance strategies for the pending Globally Harmonized System (GHS). GHS will have profound effects on the chemical data management industry, both for companies that must author and publish material safety data sheets (MSDS) for their chemical products, as well as those companies that must manage MSDSs and related chemical information for onsite chemical inventories.

Just recently, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) proposed a rule to align the agency's Hazard Communication standard with provisions of the United Nations GHS, a global chemical information management standard. The proposed regulatory updates will require revisions in both content and format of current safety data sheets, thus causing an “authoring avalanche” for the millions of MSDS documents currently in circulation. Additionally, there will be a tremendous burden placed internally for companies who must acquire, refresh, and re-circulate the updated safety data sheets for their onsite chemical inventories.

SiteHawk’s GHS Information Center is the chemical data management industry’s main source of GHS-related news and updates. Readers can access the full breadth of GHS resources online at
