Spray bottles used to store and dispense degreaser taken from bulk containers must be labeled with?
Common name of the substance.
Explaination for Spray bottles used to store and dispense degreaser taken from bulk containers must be labeled with?
The mark must represent urgency or severity; what is written on it; and who wrote it (why). For instance, the ink might say “danger: toxic poison.”
The wording without changing its meaning will keep workers aware of how much care they require during use.
Finally, the responsibility rests with whoever writes the text since monitoring may not take place unless someone insists that employers abide by safety standards; therefore supervisors need to know which suppliers meet these demands.
The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) lists the CNFOS (common/usual/customary name(s) of hazardous ingredients). Some chemicals may be listed by their trade or brand names, which only need identification if they are not widely known.
If a chemical is unknown, there should still be an indication as to what it is such as “unknown material” or “substance potency.” Individuals can use these sheets as a guide for handling chemicals.
MSDSs for chemicals are available from suppliers, employers, and governmental agencies. MSDSs provide information on the chemical’s fire, health, reactivity, and self-reactivity hazards as well as the general precautions that should be taken during handling; they also include emergency first aid procedures and an explanation of what to do if personnel are exposed to the chemical.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that an MSDS be available to employees for each hazardous chemical used in the workplace. It is important to read and understand the information on the MSDS before working with any hazardous chemical.
Some of the information included on an MSDS:
- Chemical identity (CNFOS)
- Industry use
- Physical and chemical characteristics (such as boiling point, appearance, etc.)
- Fire and explosion data (flash point, fire point, etc.)
- Reactivity data (instability to heat or water; spontaneous reaction; reactivity with water; contact with various substances causes what kind of reaction)
- Toxicological data (acute and chronic effects; routes of exposure; signs and symptoms of overexposure)
- Spill, leak, and fire control procedures
- Emergency and first-aid procedures
- Labeling requirements
- Storage requirements
- Transportation information
- Environmental hazards
Some people might feel that it is important to note the brand of degreaser used, which would be an acceptable thing to include on the label. Generally speaking, there should not be any distinctions between brands or types of degreaser unless one type does not work for a particular application.
Some companies might use acronyms instead of spelling out certain warnings. This is because some words are difficult to spell and might be unfamiliar to some employees.
One should also consider writing the following on the label:
-The name of the degreaser
-The purpose of the degreaser
-What type of surface it is being used on (metal, plastic, glass, etc.)
-The date the degreaser was mixed (how long it has been since the container was opened)
-Who made it, in case there is any question about the product’s safety or how much to use. This also serves as a warning to keep track of expiration dates so that harmful chemicals are not used past their prime
-Instructions on how to dispose of the degreaser safely.
What is required on the labels of secondary containers such as spray bottles?
Complying with the labeling requirements of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), Section 14(c) provides for a label indicating the contents of the container.
This requirement is in addition to any other label or tag provided by other applicable law, such as the Federal Hazardous Substances Labeling Act (FHSA). A safe, clear, and conspicuous label shall be affixed to each spray bottle.
This label should be text-only and should not contain any pictures or illustrations that hide or obscure important information.
If a child-resistant closure is required by FHSA, it must be preceded by the word CHILD-RESISTANT and followed by a detailed description of how it functions. The CPSC recommends that all labels be offset with the information required under FHSA.
