GHS Hazards and the Associated Hazard Symbols
The Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals has teamed up with OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard to lay out the rules for not only classifying hazardous chemicals, but also for effectively communicating those details to employees, the public, and emergency personnel.
GHS hazard symbols are a staple for all sorts of hazard signs including pipe markers, for labeling chemical storage bins, and even just regular warning labels. Those symbol categories include, explosive, flammable, oxidizing, corrosive, acute toxicity, hazardous to the environment, health hazard, serious health hazard, and gas under pressure.
Utilizing a simple pictogram gets the information to the person looking at the label quickly. Time is of the essence, especially during chemical emergencies.

OSHA Compliant Hazard Signs
OSHA requires employers to use hazard signs that comply with the ANSI Z535 standard for safety signs. These signs can mark almost any type of hazard, but many need to have a specific format that uses a signal word, header, text, and pictogram. The signal word will be Danger, Warning, or Caution, depending on the severity of the hazard. Signs also have assigned colors based on the amount of danger present.
