Chemical Storage and Labeling;
Proper labeling of hazardous chemical and waste is extremely important to reduce exposure, prevent accidents and extra disposal costs. Properly label all chemicals with full English name (no chemical structures or abbreviations), hazards, date and responsible party. Proper chemical labeling is an important step in emergency planning and prevention. In the event of an incident such as fire or personal exposure, identifying the physical and health hazards of chemicals can be critical in minimizing adverse health effects and property damage. Improperly labeled and/or unidentified chemicals can ultimately end up as “unknown” chemical waste. Determining the contents of an “unknown” chemical is an involved and costly process and also presents unique concerns and hazards for chemical waste handlers and to the environment. Please take care to avoid creating “unknown” chemicals in your laboratory.
