A hazardous material is considered a substance or a compound that has the capability to produce adverse effects on the health and safety of humans.

There are rules and regulations regarding hazardous materials from the United Nations (or UN) and other governmental bodies as well.

These rules and regulations are intended to maintain safe workplace operations and prevent hazards. The UN rules are called the Globally Harmonized System (or GHS) of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals. It is vital to know that we can save lives in the workplace and how to do it.
