GHS Pictogram Quiz

OSHA’s Hazard Communication Standard (HCS) requires the use of pictograms to alert users of the chemical hazards they may be exposed to. The pictogram is the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals standards. Fortunately, it’s known as GHS and consists of a symbol on a white background framed within a red border and represents a distinct hazard(s).

Employers are required to have trained workers on chemical Safety Data Sheets and labels as part of OSHA’s updated Hazard Communication Standard. Both new SDSs and labels will feature pictograms, and workers must know what hazards these pictograms represent.

How well do you know your GHS pictograms? For fun, take the quiz below.
