  2. Label and store chemicals properly: All hazardous chemicals and materials should be labeled and stored properly according to the manufacturer's instructions and any applicable regulations.
  3. Follow handling procedures: Employees should follow the manufacturer's handling procedures, including handling and storage instructions, mixing procedures, and disposal methods.
  4. Use ventilation systems: Employees should use ventilation systems to prevent exposure to hazardous fumes, dust, and vapors.
  5. Clean up spills immediately: Employees should clean up any spills or leaks immediately and dispose of any hazardous waste properly.
  6. Participate in safety training: Employees should participate in safety training to learn about the hazards associated with the chemicals and materials they work with, as well as the proper procedures for handling them.
  7. Understand the risks: Employees should understand the risks associated with working with hazardous chemicals and materials, including exposure to toxic chemicals, fire, and explosions.
  8. Follow emergency procedures: Employees should know the emergency procedures in case of a spill, leak, or exposure to hazardous chemicals and materials.
