Once diluted, how can staff recognize what the chemical is?

Like any chemical management system, proper labeling, multi-language educational aids, color coding, and employee management is required to properly transfer this information to the front-line cleaning worker. – Allen Randolph, vice president sales, Aqua Chempacs, Feasterville-Trevose, Pennsylvania

The makers of the premeasured packets generally use color as a non-lingual indicator to promote correct product usage and to augment the cleaning organization’s hazard communication program. The colorant is sufficiently fortified in the concentrate to still be visible at use-dilution without staining the surfaces. To further reduce confusion and to help with OSHA compliance, a color-matched hazard communication label is usually furnished with each case of premeasured product. – John B. Everitt, president, Stearns Packaging Corporation, Madison, Wisconsin
