Chemical Waste Labeling Tool

Hazardous Waste Labeling Tool

Use Harvard's standardized labels on each chemical waste container in the university. Our label formatting is compliant with all federal and local regulatory agencies.

All chemical waste generators (labs or facilities personnel) who create chemical waste containers must affix a Harvard hazardous waste label to the container and make sure any additional information requested on the label is complete and accurate.

The EH&S chemical waste labeling tool lists common chemical wastes and waste mixtures generated by lab processes. Many waste mixtures contain incompatible chemical constituents, however these mixtures are produced by controlled lab processes and reactions.

Don't assume any waste mixture constituent chemicals are compatible. Mixing incompatible chemicals can create heat generation, pressurization, violent polymerization, toxic, flammable gas generation, fires, or explosions.
