Overriding system shortcuts in OSX

It's my understanding that with OS X you cannot do this. I would like to make a quit hotkey so users can quit my application, but I cannot seem to get that to work.

I want to command-H for a menu item in my standalone, but it doesn't work

is used instead.

It seems like this should be simple but I can't figure out how to get
around this problem. Is there a way to override system shortcuts in an OSX
standalone application?
