Your Daily Photo (Hazardous, Shmazardous Edition)

According to the NFPA 704 standard:

The blue 2 indicates a health warning for substances that, "Intense or continued but not chronic exposure could cause temporary incapacitation or possible residual injury"

The red 3 indicates a flammability warning for substances that, "Liquids and solids that can be ignited under almost all ambient temperature conditions (e.g., gasoline). Flash point between 23°C (73°F) and 38°C (100°F)"

The yellow 1 indicates instability/reactivity warning for substances that, "Normally stable, but can become unstable at elevated temperatures and pressures"

Seeing that sign, any guesses as to the nature of the business that has such chemicals?
