  1. Hazard Communication Alexander Archie Compliance Enforcement Supervisor Office of the Inspector General Northern Region 5500 Snyder Avenue Office: (775) 887-3255 Cell: (775) 722-8703

  2. Hazard Communication Keith Jaquillard Compliance Enforcement Officer Office of the Inspector General Southern Region 3955 West Russell Road Office: (702) 486-9932 Cell: (702) 308-0902

  3. Hazard Communication 29 CFR 1910.1200NDOC Administrative Regulation 443 Chemical Safety on the Job

  4. We use many chemicals… • We want you to know how to use them safely • You will learn about… • The Hazard Communication Standard • NDOC Written Program • Labeling • Material Safety Data Sheets • Spill Response • Who to ask for more information

  5. Close Encounters with Chemicals • We encounter chemicals almost every day • Filling your vehicle with gas • Cleaning the bathroom • Applying pesticides or insecticides • Using solvents or acids at work • Many chemicals can cause injury or illness if not handled properly

  6. Right to Know • OSHA created the Hazard Communication Standard to help ensure safety when working with hazardous chemicals • You have a RIGHT TO KNOW about the hazardous chemicals you use on the job and how to work safely with those chemicals

  7. Hazard Communication Standard Chemical Manufacturers Must: • Determine a chemical’s hazards • Provide labels and MSDSs Employers must: • Provide a hazard communication program • Maintain MSDSs • Train on hazardous materials

  8. Hazard Communication Standard (cont) Employees must: • Read labels and MSDSs • Follow employer instructions and warnings • Identify hazards before starting a job • Participate in training

  9. Chemical Hazards Physical Hazards (external): • Flammable • Explosive • Reactive Health Hazards (internal): • Acute • Chronic

  10. Chemical Exposure • Dosage • Acute effects - immediate health effect (irritation, tissue damage, dizziness, nausea, rashes, or respiratory irritation) • Chronic effects – exposure over a long period of time (months, years)

  11. Routes of Entry • Absorption • Inhalation • Ingestion (swallowing) • Injection

  12. Personal Protective Equipment • Dust mask and respirators • Glasses, goggles, and face shields • Hearing protection • Gloves • Foot protection • Head protection • Aprons or full-body suits

  13. Hazardous Materials First Aid • Eyes: Flush with water for 30 minutes • Skin: Wash with soap and water • Inhalation: Move to fresh air • Ingestion: Get emergency medical assistance • Injection: Get emergency medical assistance / call coroner

  14. Spills and Leaks • Evacuate the area • Notify a supervisor or emergency response team • Remove ignition sources (if safe to do so) • Stay away

  15. Importance of Labels • The identity of the chemical • Name, address, and emergency phone number of manufacturer • Physical (Flammable) and health hazards • Special handling instructions • Basic PPE recommendations • First aid, fire response, spill cleanup

  16. Health Hazard Fire Hazard 4 Deadly Flash Points 3 Extreme Danger 4 Below 73 F 2 Hazardous 3 Below 100F 1 Slightly Hazardous 2 Above 100 F not 0 Normal Material exceeding 200 F 1 Above 200 F 0 Will not Burn Specific Hazard Reactivity ACID = acid 4 May detonate ALK = Alkali 3 Shock & heat may COR = Corrosive Detonate W = use no water 2 Violent Chemical Change 1 Unstable, if heated NFPA Labeling System 3 2 0 NFPA 704 System

  17. 2 HEALTH FLAMABILITY 3 0 Reactivity B Personal Protection HMIS Labeling System Ethyl Alcohol

  18. Other Label Warnings • The identity of the chemical • Name, address, and emergency phone number of manufacturer • Physical (Flammable) and health hazards • Special handling instructions • Basic PPE recommendations • First aid, fire response, spill cleanup

  19. Hazard Communication Summary • Read and become familiar with AR 443 • Identify chemical hazards by reading labels and MSDSs • Follow warnings and instructions, or ask your supervisor if in doubt • Practice sensible, safe work habits • Learn emergency procedures

  23. Hazard Communication SummaryTest • Chemical manufacturers must label containers and provide? MSDS • Employers should keep material safety data sheets in a locked file cabinet? False • Dizziness, nausea, rashes, and respiratory irritation are signs of ________ exposure. Chemical • List three routes by which a chemical can enter the body. Inhalation, Ingestion, Absorption • Household chemicals are never as hazardous as chemicals used at work. False

  24. Hazard Communication SummaryTest • On NFPA labels, a 4 in the red diamond indicates an extreme health hazard. False • Typical first aid for chemicals splashed in the eyes includes? At least 30 minutes of flushing the eyes with clear water. • You will only know the health hazards and PPE requirements if you? Read the MSDS • A _________ can be used to protect against breathing hazardous vapors or gases. Face Mask • If you see a chemical spill, you should clean it immediately. False
