Globally Harmonized System (GHS)

Chemicals throughout the handling, transportation and usage process pose a risk to human health and the environment.  In recognition of this fact, Canada and other countries have worked on a system to harmonize the existing hazard communications systems.  The aim has been to create a single, globally harmonized system which addresses the classification of chemicals according to their hazards and is able to communicate this information through labels and material safety data sheets (MSDS).

However, the issue of asbestos exposure is very relevant for other professionals, including EMS and first responders, as well as others who may respond to a natural disaster or other emergency. Asbestos exposure is the only confirmed cause of mesothelioma, a fatal form of cancer that typically manifests in the lungs.
