Identifying the Chemical Hazards
The hazard associated with a chemical depends on:
- what the specific chemical is
- what chemical(s) it is mixed with, if any, and
- the relative proportion of the chemical, if it is in a mixture or solution.
Always consider not only what the chemical is, but what concentration you are using when evaluating the hazard. This is important when reviewing chemical safety reference information such as technical data sheet or Safety Data Sheet (SDS).
