Being prepared for a hazardous waste audit should always be on a company’s mind. After all, if you’re always prepared and performing all aspects of your hazardous waste management properly, there will be far less to worry about if and when these audits happen.

If you don’t follow protocol when it comes to how to label hazardous waste, you’re running several risks. That includes fines for improperly packaging your waste, but more importantly, you put anyone in contact with that waste in potential danger. Labels on hazardous material are meant to alert people in a clear, easy way about the dangers of that waste, and if the labels aren’t accurate—or are missing altogether—people have no way of getting that information.
