    The Arlington, VA-based Chlorine Institute Inc. recently released materials to help prevent accidents caused by improperly mixing sodium hypochlorite, commonly known as bleach.

    Bleach often is used for disinfection in food- and beverage-processing industries and drinking and waste water treatment. A fact sheet (.pdf file) provides a checklist and design criteria recommendations to help avoid injuries and property damage during bulk unloading.

    A poster (.pdf file) lists eight steps to prevent situations that can lead to accidental mixing, and is intended for display in bleach-handling areas.
