Hazardous chemicals

Put a label on it.

Hazardous chemicals must be identified. Designate employees responsible for ensuring labels are legible and not removed or defaced, and proper labeling procedures are being followed. Label each container received at a facility as well as all reusable containers that contain hazardous chemicals. Make sure labels identify the chemical name, associated hazards and appropriate personal protective equipment.

Label pipes containing hazardous chemicals as well.

Review your hazardous chemical inventory annually or as necessary.

And that’s smart safety!
