What do Hazardous Materials Tags say?
Hazardous waste comes in many forms and is created in different ways. Some are source-specific wastes which are generated by specific industries while others are non source specific and are created as a product of an industrial process. There are also wastes that are from unused or spilled chemicals. All of these pose toxic threats to humans and the environment and therefore must be identified and handled properly for disposal. The EPA and other regulatory agencies have created classifications for these various types of waste. Hazardous Materials Tags denote these classifications and associated precautions for handling and what PPE is required per classification. Many tags display the NFPA Diamond Diagram which uses four colors: Red, Blue, White and Yellow to indicate health hazards, flammability, reactivity, and special hazards.
Features and Benefits:
Hazardous waste tags provide a prominent way to maintain compliance and safety by identifying containers, cylinders and drums that hold hazardous waste and chemicals.
