What is hazard communication l.jpg

What is Hazard Communication?

  • OSHA Hazard Communication Standard 29 CFR 1910.1200 – “Right to Know” went into effect in November 1985

  • The purpose of Hazcom is to communicate hazards associated with the workplace to employees

  • You, as an employee, have a Right to Know about the hazards in your work area and the potential effects of these hazards upon your health and safety

4


Key elements of the hazard communication standard l.jpg

Key Elements of the Hazard Communication Standard

The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard is composed of five key elements. These five key elements are:

  • Written Program - A written program must be developed which ties all of the below elements together

  • Material Safety Data Sheets - A detailed description of each hazardous material listed in the Materials Inventory

  • Labeling- Containers of hazardous materials must have labels which identify the material and warn of its potential hazard to employees

  • Training - All employees must be trained to identify and work safely with hazardous materials

  • Materials Inventory and Hazard Assessment - A list of the hazardous materials and other physical hazards present in your work area

6


Hazard communication program l.jpg

Hazard Communication Program

Written program must include:

  • Employee training information

  • Information regarding non-routine hazards

  • Methods of informing employers of other workers (contractors)

7

Marquette’s written Hazard Communication Program is accessible at:

  • http://www.mu.edu/riskunit

  • Office of Environmental Health & Safety

    Zilber Hall, Suite 212

The first step l.jpg

The First Step

  • Hazardous materials (chemical products) and physical hazards (radiation, lasers, vibration, etc.) are everywhere. It has been estimated that over a half million chemical products are used by business and industry every year. Some of these hazards pose little danger to you, while others are deadly

  • Modern manufacturing would not be possible without chemicals and processes. However, like machinery or electrical equipment, you must know how to use chemicals safely

  • The first step in using chemicals and processes safely is to recognize those materials and processes that may be hazardous to your health or physical safety

10


What is a hazardous chemical l.jpg

What is a “hazardous chemical”?

  • A hazardous chemical is any chemical that can do harm to your body.

  • Most industrial chemicals can harm you at some level.

  • It depends how much gets into your body.


Chemicals are everywhere l.jpg

Chemicals Are Everywhere

Examples:

  • Cleaning solvents

  • Lubricants

  • Fuels

  • Pressurized containers


Slide11 l.jpg

Training Requirements

11


Training l.jpg

Training

  • Employee training is an integral part of the hazard communication program

  • Hazard Communication – General overview training

    • This PowerPoint presentation serves as a general overview training of the MU Hazard Communication program

  • Hazard Communication – Site specific training

    • In addition to the general overview training you will receive site specific training from your supervisor. This training will include specific hazards in your work area, and methods to reduce hazards (engineering controls, administrative controls, product substitution, and personal protective equipment)

12


Slide13 l.jpg

Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)

13


Slide14 l.jpg

MSDS

  • Reference that identifies chemical characteristics and hazards

  • Must have one for each hazardous chemical used in the work area

  • MSDS can be accessed through MU’s chemical inventory system CisPro

  • Must be accessible to all employees whenever they are in their work area

14

Labeling

20


What must be labeled l.jpg

What must be labeled?

  • The OSHA Hazard Communication Standard requires that ALL hazardous materials be labeled.

    Exception:

  • Hazardous chemicals in portable containers which are for the immediate use of the employee who performs the transfer is the exception to this rule

21


Basic label information l.jpg

Basic Label Information

OSHA requires that the following information be included on ALL labels:

  • Identity of Hazardous Chemical(s)

    2. Appropriate hazard warnings, or alternatively, words, pictures, symbols, or combination thereof, which provide at least general information regarding the hazards of the chemicals, and which, in conjunction with the other information immediately available to employees under the Hazcom program, will provide employees with the specific information regarding the health and physical hazards of the hazardous chemical

    3. Name and address of the chemical manufacture, importer, or other responsible party

22


What is on the product label l.jpg

What is on the product label?

  • The manufacturer,

  • The name of the product,

Protective Measures

38


Protective measures l.jpg

Protective Measures

  • Engineering controls

    • Well designed work areas minimize exposure to materials which are hazardous. Examples of engineering controls would include exhaust systems and wetting systems to control dust

  • Work practices

    • Safe work practices will insure that chemicals are used correctly and safely

  • Product Substitution

    • Because many chemicals do similar jobs, it is important to select chemicals that do a good job, while being less toxic

  • Personal protective equipment

    • Respirators, eye protection, gloves, aprons, and other protective equipment and clothing are designed to protect you while you work - USE THEM!

39

  • Specific information on each noted hazardous substance can be obtained by reviewing the MSDS

41


You can protect yourself from hazardous chemicals by l.jpg

You can protect yourself from hazardous chemicals by:

  • Knowing what is in the product your work with,

  • Using the smallest amount of a chemical to do the job,

  • Maintaining machinery and equipment to prevent leaks or releases,


Protect yourself from hazardous chemicals by l.jpg

Protect yourself from hazardous chemicals by:

  • Using available ventilation to reduce amounts of chemicals in the air,

  • Keeping lids, doors or covers closed on chemical processes,

  • Wearing necessary personal protective equipment.


In the case of a leak or spill protect yourself by l.jpg

In the case of a leak or spill, protect yourself by:

  • Informing your supervisor of unusual odors, spills, or releases,

  • Leaving an area of a large spill or chemical release.


Slide53 l.jpg

What Now?

42


What now l.jpg

What Now?

  • Know the location and availability of hazard communication program, chemical and physical hazards and how to access MSDS files

  • Know what protective measures (PPE) you will need when dealing with hazards

  • Speak with your supervisor about chemical specific and site specific Hazcom training

43


What now55 l.jpg

What Now?

  • Identify the hazards before you start a job. If you aren’t familiar with a chemical, read the MSDS:

  • Respect all warnings and precautions, don’t take chances

  • When in doubt ask your supervisor

  • Know in advance what could go wrong and what to do about it

  • Know how and where to get help

  • Learn basic first aid measures

.


What now56 l.jpg

What Now?

You have a right to know, but you also have a responsibility to use your knowledge and skills to work safely the only person who can keep you safe on the job is YOU!
