Non-hazardous material container labeling

Posted in the OSHA Forum

I work in a manufacturing environment (plasma cutting, welding, machining, assembly). We receive several 55 gallon drums of non-hazardous liquids for use in our shop (cleaning agents, lubricants, etc.). These are often decanted into smaller containers for employees' individual use.

My question: Do these smaller secondary containers of non-hazardous chemicals need to be labeled per OSHA or other federal regs? Would simply writing the name of the chemical on the bottle, etc. suffice? Can it go completely unlabeled?

Thanks for your help!
