 I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a ready-made poster with those particular abbreviations on it!

Brady's GHS Reference Center is a nice big laminated poster.  It has 3 sections - 1) outline of the SDS (which does spell out the full versions of PEL, TLV, and PPE), 2) the nine pictograms, and 3) the elements of a GHS-compliant label.  My company sells it online at and it is, of course, available from any other number of Brady distributors as well.

I'm interested in acquiring a poster that provides a quick overview of the GHS system that's appropriate for the lab setting. I don't need information about OSHA's phase-in dates or the structure of a compliant SDS; rather, I'm interested in a quick reference of what the pictograms mean (i.e. the gas cylinder symbol does not refer to a cricket bat) and (graphical?) descriptions of key abbreviations such as STOT, SDS and LD50 mean.

Does anyone have favorite posters along these lines that they can point me to?

Thanks for any help with this.
