Labeling Secondary Containers

When a substance containing a hazardous chemical is transferred from its original container to a secondary container, the secondary container must be labeled with the identity of the chemical and any hazards it presents, including the route of entry to the body, health hazard, physical hazard, and affected organ(s).
Containers into which hazardous chemicals are transferred from labeled containers, and which are intended only for the immediate use of the employee who performs the transfer, do not need to be labeled.
