Safety is Always First

MSDS InfoBeware of Hazardous Materials.

 

We at Omaha Pest Control are very concerned about using the utmost care in taking care of your pest control needs and performing the services with safe materials.

 

Hazardous materials - Hazardous materials are present in many chemical products used in daily work activities.  Because chemicals can be particularly hazardous to human health and the environment if mishandled, they should be used with caution.  Whenever possible, lower hazardous materials or techniques should be substituted.

Hazard Communication - Hazard Communication is the program that defines how we warn people of the hazards associated with the chemicals they use.  All chemicals must be in containers bearing information about the identity of the material and its hazards.  Original manufacturer containers carry this information.  But if you dispense material into a secondary container you must transfer the identity and hazards of the material to the new container.  In addition to the labeling requirement, manufacturers are required to prepare material safety data sheets to detail physical and chemical properties and health effects of their products. – This page provides information about finding and using product safety information and links to MSDS databases on the web.

Spills – If the spilled material is of a quantity and type that you are comfortable handling, you can clean it up yourself and submit a  to dispose of the cleanup debris.  If the spilled material is of a type or quantity that you are not comfortable handling, do not have the necessary supplies to handle, or if the spill may reach a drain or waterway, contact the Environmental Protection Service to request assistance from the emergency response team.  If there are injuries or exposures or if there is an immediate danger from the spilled material, dial 911 to activate emergency response personnel and procedures.
