Hazardous Chemicals on Campus (identity)
hazard types
Hazard Types
  • Toxicity - pesticides, paint strippers, cleaners
  • Flammability - paint thinner, lacquer thinner
  • Corrosive - drain and over cleaners, disinfectants
  • Reactivity - chlorine bleach, ammonia
labels basics
Labels - Basics
  • Identity of the hazardous chemical(s)
  • Appropriate hazard warning
  • Name, address and emergency telephone # of the chemical manufacturer or other responsible party
  • Appropriate protective equipment
labels other information
Labels - Other Information
  • Signal word - Danger!, Warning!, or Caution!
  • Statement of and identity of hazard
  • Instructions in case of contact or exposure
  • First-Aid or antidote
  • Instructions in case of fire, spill, or leak
  • Instructions for container handling and storage
  • Never remove label and if transferred to a new container label it with appropriate information - chemical name etc
who regulates labels
Who Regulates Labels?
  • Product labels regulated by EPA, FDA and CPSC.
  • EPA - bleach, disinfectant and wood preservatives
  • FDA - food, drugs, cosmetics and personal care products
  • CPSC - cleaners, wood finishes and other household products
  • Only food, drug and cosmetic labels list all ingredients
waste disposal
Waste Disposal
  • Household hazardous waste is regulated by state governments.
  • No pesticides, fertilizers, and solvent based products down the drain.
  • No liquids, corrosive or flammable chemicals in the trash
  • Use up according to label, recycle or take to hazardous waste site.
HMIS Label - used on campus as secondary labeling system -see cover of Hazard Communication Notebookfor details
material safety data sheets msdss
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs)
  • Chemical document put out by manufacturer detailing physical and health hazards
  • one for every hazardous chemical on campus
  • master file located in the hallway behind AS1519
  • review before working with unfamiliar chemicals
information on msdss i
Information on MSDSs .I
  • Identity and date of preparation
  • Manufacturer’s name and emergency tel. #
  • Hazard ingredients
  • Physical and chemical properties - flash pt., appearance and odor etc
information on msdss ii
Information on MSDSs .II
  • Control measures
  • Physical hazards
  • Routes of entry into body
  • Acute and chronic health effects
  • Carcinogenicity
  • Handling and storage conditions
information and training
Information and Training
  • General Awareness Session (today)
  • Division Training (area supervisor)
    • Locate Hazard Communication Notebook -
    • Contains specific hazards, potential exposures and protective measures available
    • where the MSDSs are located
  • Employee Training Record - needs to be completed at the end of Training today
chemical sensitivities i
Chemical Sensitivities .I
  • 650K hazardous chemicals used in the workplace
  • Individual variable immune response
  • Low dose exposure over longer period of time can alter function of immune system
chemical sensitivities ii
Chemical Sensitivities .II
  • Effects develop slowly
  • Symptoms include Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Examples include - pesticides, tobacco smoke, artificial fragrances, vehicle exhausts, solvents
chemical sensitivities iii
Chemical Sensitivities .III
  • NSCC Indoor Air Quality Policy
  • NSCC encourages a scent and pollutant free environment
  • Specially designated scentfree classrooms
  • Compliance process - contact president’s office for copy of IAQ
protective measures i
Protective Measures .I
  • routes of entry
    • inhalation
    • ingestion
