Hazardous substances

Hazardous substances must be safely used, transported, labeled and stored in accordance with certain standards and guidelines. The UT guidelines for the use of different categories of hazardous substances are shown here.  A new agreement has been made to classify and label chemical substances in the same way all over the world. This agreement is called the Globally Harmonized System, abbreviated to GHS. On this page you find information about the 'old' labeling (WMS) in relation to the new labeling (GHS).

Here you can also find links to files with specific safety information on chemicals.
