Storing Products Safely

Go on a hazard hunt around the house, to prevent serious
accidents. Make sure you know what chemicals you have in
your house and garage. Then take the proper precautions:

-- Read labels. Make a list of the hazardous products with
emergency care information.
-- Store hazardous household products according to safety
recommendations.
-- Make sure all containers are closed, to avoid spills and
escaping vapors.
-- Store aerosols away from fireplaces, radiators, space
heaters and other heat-generating sources.
-- Check that labels on hazardous products are secure and
readable.

Also make sure you know the proper disposal method for
hazardous materials. Your local sanitation officials can
give you details on the policies in your community.
