SPOT THE HAZARDS
Hazardous materials are often displayed in cartoons with a skull and crossbones printed on the label, but in real life they can be harder to spot.
Hazardous materials are all around you: under the kitchen sink, in the garage and riding down the highway in a tanker truck.
Most of them will be handled correctly and used only for their intended purposes. But if a chemical, biological or radiological/nuclear emergency does occur, it is important that you know what to do!
