GHS - Hazard Statements

 


GHS Pictograms | GHS Hazard Statements | GHS Precautionary Statement

GHS hazard statement means a standard phrase assigned to a hazard class and category to describe the nature and severity of a chemical hazard. Hazard Statements, or H-statements, are part of the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS). H-statements provide standardized wording and pictograms to indicate the chemical hazards of a product, including the degree of chemical hazard. Each hazard statement is designated a code, starting with the letter H and followed by 3 digits.

H2xx: Physical hazards


H3xx: Health hazards


H4xx: Environmental hazards


H-Statements take the form Hnxx, where H stands for “hazard statement” or “H-statement”; n is substituted with 2 for physical hazards, 3 for health hazards, and 4 for environmental factors. xx is a sequential numbering scheme.

It shall be noted that the H code is used for reference purpose only. It is the actual phrase which should appear on labels and safety data sheets.
