The GHS pictograms and NFPA 704 diamond numbers must match the inventory of the lab and these signs should be updated with any changes as necessary.
The proper procedure for determining what goes on the sign starts with making sure your ERAU chemical inventory is up to date. AJ McGahran (x67022)
in the Physical Sciences department will help you make sure your chemical inventory is accurate in the ERAU database.
Once the database is up to date, it's easy to determine the
proper pictograms and diamond numbers for your sign. Every hazard in your lab must be on the door
sign. The NFPA diamond must indicate the highest values for each of the categories. For instance, if you have a chemical which is 1, 1, 3 on the diamond
and another which is 2, 0, 1, then your sign must read 2, 1, 3.
