We're in the process of rolling out GHS training to our lab groups and one of the questions that arose is whether GHS hazard classes can be used as guidance for chemical storage compatibility groups. I can't think of any reason why not off the top of my head, but I thought I would ask the DCHAS-L list if you've run into any examples of GHS icons putting chemicals in the wrong storage class. Have you?

Thanks for any help with this.
