  1. Hazard Communication HAZCOM STANDARD OPERATIONS with HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS CHEMICAL HAZARDS HOW to DETECT HOW to PROTECT WRITTEN PROGRAM MSDS's LABELS

  2. 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

  3. 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)

  4. 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

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. 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

  9. 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

  10. 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

  11. 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

  12. 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

  13. 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

  14. 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
