Chemical safety labelling systems need to be clear and consistent upon implementation throughout the facilities to ensure that chemical hazards are easily identified and understood.
The 2 types of chemical containers commonly used :
- Primary Containers such as bulk chemical containers or packaging are required to be labelled / provided by chemical manufacturers / suppliers. It should meet the standard requirements of hazard labelling
- Secondary Containers, also known as, workplace containers are containers transferred from primary containers for convenience. In most workplaces, secondary containers are often smaller in size and shape, hence, it is required to have the necessary information about the chemical labelled on it.
