Brewery Chemical Handling Hazards

Before dispensing and using hazardous chemicals, brewery employees need to be aware of the following precautions:

  1. Concentrated chemicals should always be added to water, not the other way around.
  2. When dispensing chemicals, chemical resistant gloves, selected based on the chemicals present, should always be worn. Consult the glove selection information below.
  3. 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.
  4. Never mix acid and caustic based cleaners together.
