The main subject of this brochure is “Identifying the substance correctly”. It is important to note that the chemicals used are often bought from or supplied by a third party. This is why care must be taken to avoid any mix-up throughout the entire logistics chain, from the point of manufacture, storage, transport and delivery right through to the end user.
In this publication, hazards resulting from the mis-identification of chemicals are presented and preventive measures are described. Selected incident reports help to explain this subject to managers and employees of companies involved along the entire logistic chain to the subject and raise their awareness in order to avoid future incidents, accidents and loss of property.
