In industry, primary chemical containers are usually carefully marked with important safety information from the manufacturer of the chemical. Your employees may place these chemicals into secondary containers for ease of transport and use inside your facility. To insure safety, these secondary containers should also be carefully marked for identification and information regarding the material contained.
Your secondary chemical containers should be carefully tagged with information vital to employee safety. HAZTAGs are made especially for use on your secondary chemical compound containers. Tie your HAZTAG to the handle of the chemical container. It will display the following important information taken directly from the manufacturer's MSDS:
MSDS Code (specific to your facility code for that chemical, if you have one)
NFPA "diamond" identifying the hazards of a material and the degree of severity of the health, flammability, instability, and special hazards
PPE (personal protective equipment) required when handling the chemical
Body Organs Affected by overexposure of the chemical
Primary Routes of Entry
Emergency Phone Numbers for the Manufacturer, Chemtrec, and Poison Control
HAZTAGs can help keep your employees safe and knowledgeable about the chemicals they are handling. They are the size of a luggage tag and they are protected by a laminated pouch. Attach the HAZTAG to the container using the plastic ties that we will include for each tag in your order.
