Obtaining GHS Labels for Secondary Chemical Containers

All secondary chemical containers of hazardous materials, including wash bottles, stock solutions, carboys, etc., must now have GHS labels attached in order to be considered in compliance with OSHA regulations.  You can determine if you have a hazardous material by referencing section 2.2 of the chemical's Safety Data Sheet.  EH&S can provide such labels upon request.
