Ralph - the Sigma GHS info (http://www.sigmaaldrich.com/safety-center/globally-harmonized.html)shows the new Hazard & Precautionary statements that OSHA has in thenew Appendix C. They've managed to get the 55 pages down to 5. These newH&P statements are from the GHS appendix & are the statements OSHAwill be requiring on all chemical containers. It does not matter wherethe chemical will be used, so yes, the lab chemicals will be coming inwith new labels & SDSs.
The Risk & Safety statements arean older version that was used by EU and may not necessarily be the sameas the GHS required statements.
I just did a OSHA/GHS webinar for CSHEMA.Here are the resources I found very useful:
