Tapes that show hazards are one-half inch wide,
with the abbreviation of the hazard printed across
the tape. There are four general classes of hazards
found with fluid lines.
1. Flammable material (FLAM). The hazard
marking FLAM identifies all materials ordinarily
known as flammable or combustibles.
2. Toxic and poisonous materials (TOXIC).
TOXIC identifies lines containing materials that
are extremely hazardous to life or health.
3. Anesthetics and harmful materials (AAHM).
AAHM identifies all materials producing
anesthetic vapors and all liquid chemicals and
