Be Prepared

Before working with a chemical:

  • Identify any health hazard associated with the chemical.
  • Identify if work should be conducted in a chemical fume hood, or if any other special equipment should be used, such as a bottle carrier.
  • Identify any personal protective equipment that you must wear.
