Setup suggestions

To create a list of possible handling hazards, contact your facilities manager, regulatory agency, safety engineer, fire inspector, insurance representative and other professionals who are responsible for monitoring your workplace safety.

Special storage situations will require assistance from inventory managers and possibly the part manufacturers.

In some cases, parts may have multiple attributes. For instance, a chemical in your manufacturing process may be both flammable and very expensive; in this case, you'll want to create a new classification with both attributes, rather than forcing the user to choose only one.
