How are portable containers used in-house supposed to be labeled?
If a chemical is transferred from the original container to another container(s) and will not be used immediately by the employee who did the transfer, then the container must be labeled. It does not, however, need the new HazCom label. An employer’s in-house labeling system (e.g., NFPA or HMIS) is acceptable; however, the information supplied via your in-house labeling system must be consistent with the hazards communicated on the new HazCom label.
