The bucket industry has taken action because of the dangers of children accidentally falling into larger buckets and drowning by imprinting a warning label on larger buckets (4–7 gallon sizes). Each bucket is labeled with a caution label warning of the danger of drowning. This labeling has been adopted as an ASTM Standard; the designation is F1615. This standard may be purchased from the ASTM office. Since the labels have been applied to pails, there has been a noted reduction in the incidence of children drowning.
