One other issue - as I was reading these responses and knowing that I am going to be actively in the academic workforce as of the spring. We have a responsibility to educate as many of these students are going to see the new labels in a variety of settings. I am thinking that my first lab class will be reviewing the OSHA quick cards.

Out of curiosity, for those of you in academia, how are you handling GHS secondary container labeling in teaching lab situations where the average freshman student isn't exactly known for their attention to detail? We often have a multitude of small dropping bottles with 30 to 50 ml which becomes a labeling nightmare because of lack of space for labels due to the small size of the container.
