Distinguish between OSHA and DOT!

Pictograms serve a great purpose in the workplace: they indicate a hazard and bring your attention to it. OSHA’s well known for using pictograms to attract the reader’s attention, through the Hazard Communication standard. The Department of Transportation (DOT) uses these pictograms, too. But be careful, OSHA pictograms don’t replace the diamond-shaped labels that the DOT requires for the transport of chemicals in drums, totes, tanks, or other containers. Make sure those labels are on the external part of the container and meet the DOT requirements set forth at 49 CFR 172, Subpart E.

Now, you may see these DOT labels on shipped containers entering your establishment, and you should recognize them. See below for a few examples.
