Mullins Lab Standard Operating Procedure



Labeling Chemicals:


Secondary labeling:

Information about hazardous chemicals is found on manufacturersÕ labels on chemicals (or chemical products) containers. If chemicals are transferred from a labeled container to an unlabeled container (e.g., following dilution), the secondary container must be labeled with the identity of the chemical, the appropriate hazard warning, and target organ effects. Obtain appropriate labels from lab manager.  Safety inspectors frequently search for this specific labeling format.


Labeling solutions:

When chemicals are mixed together to make other solutions, the secondary containers must be labeled with the following:

  1. Names of the components of the mixture

Note: If abbreviations are use for labeling secondary containers, the laboratory must generate a list indicating the proper names, compositions and hazards of the content of the containers.

  1. Date solution made
  2. Initials of who prepared solution
  3. Identify the hazard class if it is a hazardous chemical (i.e., toxic, flammable, carcinogenic, oxidizer)


** if you have any questions or comments, direct them to the lab manager.
