Does the border on the pictogram need to be red on the SDS?
No, pictograms on SDSs do not have to have red borders. OSHA provides flexibility with regard to how pictograms are presented in Section 2 of the SDS. Appendix D of the standard says that “Hazard symbols may be provided as graphical reproductions in black and white or the name of the symbol (e.g., flame, skull, and crossbones).” In other words, a pictogram with a red border, in black and white, or with no symbol at all may be used.
