Can pictograms with black borders be used if only shipping within the United States?
All pictograms must have red borders set at a point with a black hazard symbol on a white background, sufficiently wide to be clearly visible. OSHA believes that the use of the red frame will increase recognition and comprehensibility. Therefore, the red frame is required regardless of whether the shipment is domestic or international.
