I'm looking at the Sigma-Aldrich web site entries for safety information about specific chemicals. In addition to the GHS pictograms, I see entries for Hazard Statement and Precautionary Statement codes and Risk Statements and Safety Statements codes.

Are these sets of information redundant? If so, which hare the ones that OSHA has in mind to be included on labels that will be required when the revised Hazard Communication standard takes effect? Will these requirements apply to the lab setting as well?

Thanks for any information on this.
