Safety Photo December 2012

IMG_4762 IMG_4750

These two photos reflect issues I see every day with regards to chemcial safety and container labeling and the rest of the Hazard Communication standard. I see spray bottles, drink bottles, buckets, etc. filled with all kinds of fluids (who knows what they are because they are not labeled or are misslabeled). Container labeling can be a serios problem if not properly addressed with employees. I have seen fatalities as a result of someone drinking something they htought was a sports drink, but turned out to be a toxic chemical. Or injuries resulting from chemicals breaking through or disoolving containers that they should never have been in to begin with.

Are you prpared for the changes in the HAZCOM standard and the new GHS requirements?
