SAFETY USAGE GUIDE FOR FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS
FOR YOUR PROTECTION - DO NOT BE A STATISTIC
Please be careful. The major dangers in storing or handling flammable liquids are those of fire and explosion. Containers should be grounded if made of conductive material and should not be near sources of sparks, open flames or hot surfaces. The container should be kept in an area where spillage (liquid or vapors) will not flow to an ignition source. DO NOT ALLOW SMOKING IN THE AREA. Be sure to provide adequate ventilation to prevent concentration of fumes. Remember, fumes of flammable liquids are highly explosive. Fire extinguishers of proper type to handle Class B fires and of proper size and quantity to handle the potential hazard should be readily available. Water is generally not suitable as an extinguisher of a Class B fire. Ensure means of safe disposal of any spillage before transferring. Liquids should only be transferred to an appropriate tank. If such a container is conductive then it should be connected to the container with a grounding strap to prevent static electric spark. Guidelines for handling flammable liquids can be obtained from the National Fire Protection Agency, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269.
