How to Choose GHS Pictograms for A Chemical?

You have to determine the hazard class and hazard category of a chemical first. Once the classification of a chemical has been determined, standard signal word, hazard pictograms, hazard statements and precautionary statements will be assigned (see example below for flammable liquids).

For a chemical classified with multiple hazards, you will need to follow some precedence rules to choose the most relevant pictograms.
