Use simple chemical formulas:  NaCN, KCN, Ca2Cn2, etc , I won't argue: use abbreviations that might kill somebody, BAD idea.
Whoever has to walk into a HAZMAT incident doesn't have time to look for a bunch of abbreviations.  Lives may be on the line.  The  ;AHLS Course stresses some of that.  Those who have not worn Level A or Level B might consider that others have and will continue to due so.& nbsp; Bad labels, some of us might be invoked, whether needed or not.

One of the major problems is going to be distinguishing TLAs from FLAs .   ... Jim
