"I have a question regarding the transfer of flammable liquids (reagent
alcohol, methanol or xylene) to safety cans. 
Has anyone been required to transfer the remaining flammable liquids
from the one gallon plastic or glass bottle it was supplied in from the
vendor to a safety can after dispensing any amount from it? 
Thanks in advance for all your responses.

Makes no sense! If the alcohol is supplied in a container fit for
purpose then why put such a potentially dangerous step into the
procedure; pouring it into a safety can? If the containers are not fit
for purpose then you shouldn't have received the alcohol in them in the
first place.
