The GHS goal is to unify hazardous material classification standards worldwide to enhance protection of human health and environmental awareness. This GHS infographic illustrates the chemical symbols found in GHS and explains how chemicals are labeled and classified across the globe.
Key elements of the colorful artwork address:
Estimated costs for implementing GHS
Estimated number of fatalities prevented

Other infographics in the Graphic Products library include Arc Flash Boundary, OSHA Workplace Safety, Deadliest U.S. Jobs & Cities, 6S System, Pipe Marking, and NFPA Fire Safety.
Infographics are a popular way of simplifying complex data. They're in widespread use by USA Today for snapshots of social, economic and geographic fluctuations, metropolitan area transit systems to help commuters navigate confusing subway lines and textbooks to accompany scientific data. What all have in common is impact, imagery and information – whether they incorporate tables, oval pie charts, diagrams, flow charts, graphs, drawings, unusual fonts, symbols or other design elements.
Graphic Products, Inc. has developed an expertise in workplace safety through its 40+ year track record manufacturing industrial labeling systems for mines, factories, distribution centers and mechanical contractors who deal with the dangers of arc flash and compliance with OSHA.
Over the past two years, Graphic Products, Inc. has expanded its workplace safety library to include:
Lean manufacturing, hazardous label, workplace safety, food processing and confined space and OSHA safety best practice guides
Pipe marking, 5S and arc flash webinars
Short, instructional videos about visual communications for the mining industry, cable and wire marking, applying labels to oily surfaces and creating wayfinding labels
Graphic Products, Inc. encourages all workplace safety conscious companies to embed these infographics on their own website. You can view and embed the GHS infographic by visiting http://www.duralabel.com/infographics.
