LABELING OF CONTAINERS CONTAINING HAZARDOUS PRODUCTS
_____________________________ will verify that all containers received for use by this department and which contain hazardous products shall:
- be clearly labeled as to the contents and have a corresponding MSDS
- have the hazard warning appropriate to the containers contents
- list the name and address of the manufacturer
No containers are to be released for departmental use until the foregoing requirements have been met. This also applies to all hazardous products brought in by employees and which are used and/or stored for later use by the employee(s) of the department. Portable containers into which hazardous chemicals are transferred from labeled containers and which are intended only for the immediate use of the employee performing the transfer, are not required to be labeled. However, portable containers into which hazardous chemicals are transferred from labeled containers and which are intended for extended use, will have proper labeling. All labels and forms of warning should be legible, in English and prominently displayed on the container or readily available in the immediate work area. Department heads having employees who speak other languages may add the information in their language to the material presented as long as the information is presented in English as well.
