Workplace Safety > Hazard Communication Quiz > Question 19
Every container in your work area holding a hazardous chemical must be properly labeled, including a portable container which you have filled from a labeled container, and which you intend to use during your work shift.
Show me the Answer
Correct answer is:
If you transfer chemicals from a labeled container to a portable container that is intended only for your immediate use, no labels are required on the portable container. Immediate use means during your work shift. The exclusion from labeling only applies to containers that will be used by the person who transferred the chemical from the labeled container. Containers containing hazardous chemicals that will be utilized by employees other than the one performing the transfer, including employees on other shifts, must be labeled.
