these new hazard symbols have recently been (or will be) introduced as an international standard, they were developed by a large committee of boffins for the United Nations

GHS or the Globally Harmonised System for the Classification and Labelling of chemicals was intended to establish a better protection of individuals and of the environment in the face of hazards that may be caused by chemicals during their production, handling, manipulation, transport and use.

the idea seems good but i’m not too sure about the execution personally it seems to be an odd mix of an isometric symbol style and some sort of odd ‘wood-cut’ style, surely it could be more coherent than this?
