Keep these NSNs handy for safety items used in the motor pool.
Yellow Safety Paint
Get a 5-gal container of yellow safety paint with NSN 8010-01-019-1776. This water-based latex is used to paint guide marks and warning lines inside your motor pool. It’s non-flammable and presents fewer health and safety hazards than the old oil-based paint. Before disposal, check with your environmental safety office for state or local regulations on latex paint waste.
Hand Sanitizer
Get a package of 24 3-oz bottles of hand sanitizer with NSN 65018-01-535-5409.The foliage-green bottles are made to withstand heat and can be opened with just one hand. This sanitizer kills 99.99 percent of most common germs.
Absorbent Compound
Get a 44-lb bag of absorbent compound for soaking up oil and fuel spills with NSN 7930-00-269-1272. Just sprinkle the compound on the spill and sweep it up once the spill is absorbed.  Dispose of the compound in a proper HAZMAT container. Table B-1 of CTA-970 is your authority for ordering the compound.
