David,

From a chemical compatibility standpoint…

glass, high density polyethylene (HDPE), and polypropylene (PP) and carbon steel are all rated excellent for use with pyridine.

Nalgene bottles made of HDPE or PP are available.

Also, I assume for shipping purposes they would lab pack a two liter volume so you could also check with your waste vendor and ask them.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Pyridine

Good Morning,

Can you recommend a container for storing Pyridine Waste that will be appropriate for shipping for offsite disposition?

I’m looking for something in the 2L range—analysis requires very small amounts and disposition would probably be annually.

Thanks for your help.

FYI - Here's the compilation of links for OSHA's laboratory-related information - more fact sheets as well as most of everything else.

Spoiler alert:  Same issue as the cryogen sheet.

Maybe we’re supposed to use these fact sheets with our clients and ask, what’s missing here?

Great – I will add this one to my poster for the spring.  Appreciate the help!!

Also – if you want some fun – look at the Solandra publicity shots with Obama – the workers are in hard hats, safety glasses, gloves, and tyvex suits.  He is in a suit – that’s it.

I was just checking out the new OSHA fact sheets on lab safety and noticed that they have photos with people not wearing proper PPE!  For example, for the cryogens and dry ice fact sheet (http://www.osha.gov/Publications/laboratory/OSHAquickfacts-lab-safety-cryogens-dryice.pdf) they show a person with no eye/face protection even though the fact sheet says:


Always use a face shield in conjunction with safety glasses or goggles.


You would think they wouldn't make that mistake......
