9 Environmental Health and Safety Oklahoma State University Hazard Communication Labeling and Marking Systems

10 Environmental Health and Safety Labeling and Marking Systems  NFPA Diamonds  HMLS Labels  Uniform Laboratory Hazard Signage System

11 Environmental Health and Safety Labeling and Marking Systems NFPA Diamonds  Color coded, numerical rating system  Will be located near main entrances, fire alarm panels, or on outside entrance doors  Provide at-a-glance hazard information

12 Environmental Health and Safety Labeling and Marking Systems NFPA Diamonds  Blue = Health  Red = Flammability  Yellow = Instability  White = Special hazard information

13 Environmental Health and Safety Labeling and Marking Systems NFPA Diamonds  4= Deadly Hazard  3= Severe Hazard  2= Moderate Hazard  1= Slight Hazard  0= No Hazard

14 Environmental Health and Safety Labeling and Marking Systems HMLS Labels  Designed to go on individual containers of products that don’t have the manufacturer’s labels  Same color code/numerical rating system as the NFPA diamonds

15 Environmental Health and Safety Labeling and Marking Systems HMLS Labels  Blue = Health  Red = Flammability  Yellow = Instability  White = Personal Protective Equipment or special protection information  Numerical Rating of 0-4

16 Environmental Health and Safety Labeling and Marking Systems HMLS Labels  You should never have any unattended, unlabeled containers in your workplace!

17 Environmental Health and Safety Labeling and Marking Systems Uniform Laboratory Signage  Located on laboratory and chemical storage area doors  Pictographs depict worst hazards present in lab or area

18 Environmental Health and Safety Labeling and Marking Systems Uniform Laboratory Signage  Always check with the appropriate personnel (lab manager, chemical hygiene officer, etc.) before performing work or maintenance in a laboratory!

19 Environmental Health and Safety Labeling and Marking Systems Manufacturer Requirements  Pictogram  Signal Word  Hazard & Precautions  Product Identifier  Supplier Information
