Before dispensing and using hazardous chemicals, brewery employees need to be aware of the following precautions:
- Concentrated chemicals should always be added to water, not the other way around.
- When dispensing chemicals, chemical resistant gloves, selected based on the chemicals present, should always be worn. Consult the glove selection information below.
- Care should be taken to avoid splashing when dispensing chemicals. In order to reduce exposure to the face and eyes from splashes of concentrated chemicals, brewery employees should wear a face shield or chemical splash goggles.
- Never mix acid and caustic based cleaners together.
