Before beginning with any cleaning task, be sure that you fully understand how to use the chemicals and equipment required for the job. It is mandated by OSHA that every employee has a right to know about the possible chemical hazards within their workplace.
A safety data sheet (SDS) will provide the information regarding the chemicals within your building. Read and understand the SDS, as well as the product label for every product that you use. Your supervisor will show you where to find your SDS information and will also help you read and understand each sheet. The SDS for every product Jon-Don sells can be found online at www.jondon.com or you can call one of our representatives to have a copy sent to you (call us at 800-400-9473).
Be careful not to use cleaning chemicals on any surface for which they are not intended. Be especially cautious when using acid cleaners. Never mix chemicals. It could cause serious or even fatal injury.
Wear the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) to protect yourself from exposure to cleaning chemicals. Gloves, a mask and goggles will prevent chemical splashes from coming into contact with your skin and eyes.
Practice universal precautions when cleaning any blood or body fluid spills, or soiled materials that could contain these or other potentially infectious substances.
