OSHA's quick cards include one with a simple explanation, like the Canadian one:

It includes a Spanish version. I hope OSHA doesn't mind, but for my lab use, I cropped out the wording with the date.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] GHS Posters for Lab Setting

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.
