Laboratory Safety/Material Storage

  1. All bottles should be labeled with the name of the chemical and warnings such as flammable (labeled as inflammable in most countries, which means the same thing), corrosive, etc.
  2. Flammable materials should be stored in a separate cabinet or a room depending on the size.
  3. Make sure to separate oxidizing agents from reducing agents.
  4. Liquids should be stored in double container in case the container breaks
