Appendix C.2.4.8 does allow for the elimination of precautionary statements that are determined to be inappropriate to a substance or mixture as well as the combining of statements (C.2.4.6).

C.2.4.6 Precautionary statements may be combined or consolidated to save label space and improve readability. For example, "Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame," "Store in a well-ventilated place" and "Keep cool" can be combined to read "Keep away from heat, sparks and open flame and store in a cool, well-ventilated place.."

C.2.4.8 If the chemical manufacturer, importer, or responsible party can demonstrate that a precautionary statement is inappropriate to a specific substance or mixture, the precautionary statement may be omitted from the label.

See 29CFR1910.1200 Appendix C.2.4 for complete text.
