Do I Have to Display GHS Pictograms on Buildings?

04/06/2015

With the introduction of the internationally accepted pictograms under the Global Harmonised System (GHS) for hazardous chemicals by the WHS laws, some people have asked “Does Dangerous Goods (DG) Hazchem placarding on individual buildings, need to include GHS pictograms as well as existing DS’s diamonds?” 

The answer is No! 

Building placarding only needs to include the traditional DG diamonds, samples are illustrated on the right. 

The GHS pictograms are only required on chemical containers.
