Hazard Communication

HAZCOM STANDARD

OPERATIONS with HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS

CHEMICAL HAZARDS

HOW to DETECT

HOW to PROTECT

WRITTEN PROGRAM

MSDS\'s

LABELS

slide2

Hazard Determination

All manufacturers and importers must

determine the hazards of their chemicals

Written Program

How This Employer will inform

you about chemical hazards

In the Yellow and Black MSDS binders

slide3

MSDS’s

Must be immediately available for all chemicals

Labels

All containers (with few exceptions) must be labeled

Training

Formal training (like now)

Informal training (every day)

slide4

Beralcast Beryllium

Shell Construction Crystalline Silica

Degreasing Solvents

Battery Charging Sulfuric Acid

Hydrogen Gas

Disinfection, Laundry Clorox Bleach

List all operations that use chemicals

List All Chemicals Used

Discuss with Supervisor and Co-Workers

slide5

CHEMICAL HAZARDS

ALL CHEMICALS ARE HAZARDOUS

  • Beryllium Sensitizer - Chronic Beryllium Disease (CBD) - A Fibrosis
  • Silica Silicosis - A Fibrosis
  • Clorox Bleach Caustic - Strong Base, Dermatitis
  • Sulfuric Acid Irritant - eye, nose, throat, skin
  • Cumulative Lung Damage
  • Hydrophilic - Heats with water added

You can find many more hazards in the MSDS\'s

slide6

HOW to DETECT

Detector tubes

Direct Reading Instruments

Personal and Area Air Sampling

  • Sulfuric Acid Colorless to Brown Oily Liquid
  • Burning in Nose and Eyes
  • Clorox Bleach Smells Like a Swimming Pool

Again - Refer to the MSDS\'s for more information

slide7

HOW to PROTECT

      • Respirators - Protect only against rated chemicals
      • Concentration you breath = Concentration in air
        • Protection Factor
      • Protective Clothing - Gloves, Aprons, Boots, etc.
  • No material protects against all chemicals
  • Chemicals eventually break through any protective material
slide8

HOW to PROTECT

      • Alcohol Natural Rubber or Neoprene
  • Gasoline Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA)
  • Sulfuric Acid Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
  • Other Personal Protective Equipment
  • Splash Goggles, Face Shields
  • Safety Glasses not for chemical splashes
  • Bonding and Grounding protects against sparks
  • Some chemicals require ventilated areas
slide9

WRITTEN PROGRAM

Describes how This Employer gets information to YOU

In the Yellow and Black MSDS Binders

The plan includes

Training before assignment near chemicals

Training whenever new hazards are introduced

Annual refresher training

Continual, daily informal training

slide10

WRITTEN PROGRAM

      • Annual review to insure all chemicals are on list
      • Annual review to insure all chemicals have MSDS\'s
  • Monthly inspections to insure all containers are labeled
  • Available to you or your representatives for copying
slide11

MSDS\'s

Material Safety Data Sheets are in yellow and black binders

Also available on-line at SIRI Vermont

MSDS\'s contain:

emergency information - first aid directions

health, fire, reactivity hazards

protective measures –

ventilation, gloves, splash goggles

Much, Much More

slide12

LABELS

  • Do not deface or remove manufacturer\'s labels
  • All other containers must have:
      • 1. Name of the product (as on the source container)
      • 2. Health and safety hazards (may use HMIS)
  • Names on labels same as on MSDS’s
  • Names on the chemical list same as labels
slide13

LABELS

  • NFPA 704 - Hazard Diamond
      • Red - Fire, Flammability
      • Blue - Health Hazard
      • Yellow - Reactivity
  • White area shows fire fighting information
      • Higher the Number, GREATER the Hazard
slide14

LABELS

  • HMIS
  • Hazardous Materials Information System
      • Red - Fire, Flammability
      • Blue - Health Hazard
      • Yellow - Reactivity
      • White - PPE
  • Pictogram represents required PPE
  • Higher the Number, GREATER the Hazard
