Symbols (Pictograms): These symbols will relay all health, physical and environmental hazards.
Signal Words: These words such as “warning” and “danger” will emphasize chemical hazards and severity.
Hazard Statement: These will be standard phrases given to each hazard class that will describe the nature of the hazards.
