2 , Kilauea Field Station I. Policy The, Biological Resources Division, Pacific Island Ecosystems Research Center (PIERC) will maintain an effective "Hazardous Communications Program" in accordance with the current federal Occupational Health and Safety Act Regulation 29 CFR II. PURPOSE The above noted regulation set forth "to ensure that the hazards of chemicals produced or imported by chemical manufacturers or importers are evaluated, and that information concerning their hazards is transmitted to affected employers and employees. The transmittal of information is to be accomplished by means of comprehensive hazard communication program, which is to include container labeling and other forms of warning, material safety data sheets and personnel training." This program as well as the regulation above is to ensure that PIERC provides knowledge, warning, protection and training to employees who may be exposed to hazards of chemicals and other materials in their work environment. III. Responsibility The Safety Manager is designated as having the responsibility for the administration of the PIERC Hazardous Communication Program and will act as the general HazCom Program Coordinator for PIERC. The "Hazard Communications Program" will consist of five basic components: Inventory and audit of hazardous chemicals and materials. Labels and labeling of hazardous chemicals and materials containers. Material safety data sheets (MSDS) maintenance, distribution, availability and locations. Personnel training and information, general and specific. A written "Hazard Communication Program" as herewith prescribed. The written "Hazardous Communication Program" for PIERC with its associated inventory list, records, materials, etc., will be maintained and located at the 66

3 , Kilauea Field Station HazCom Program Coordinator office, Kilauea Field Station, Building 344. Personnel may review the program, MSDS and chemical listing at this location. IV. Application. All personnel who will be working or doing research at the Pacific Island Ecosystems Research Center, and this includes interns, volunteers, university personnel and students, must complete the HazCom training with two weeks of their arrival at the Field Station and every three years thereafter. V. INVENTORY, AUDIT. An initial inventory of all chemicals and materials will be made of all work areas and facilities. An annual audit using a printed version of the Hazardous Materials Inventory will be conducted thereafter. All hazardous chemicals and materials will be identified and listed. A copy of the listing for each work area will be kept with the MSDS's for that area and all the lists compiled to make a master list for the center that will be kept in room 210 of building 344 (HazCom Program Coordinator's office). The Hazardous Materials Inventory listing will note at least the following information: Name of chemical or product. Product number if available. Building where material is located, Location within the building where material is located. Manufacturer of product. Typical quantity of the chemical or material on hand If there is an MSDS available for this product Date of MSDS. Person responsible for the material or product. Expiration date of material if any. Date material opened or received. It will be the responsibility of the person purchasing the material to provide the HaZCom Program Coordinator with an MSDS for the chemical or material that was purchased and that person will inform the HazCom Program Coordinator with the location of where the chemical or material will be used and stored. The HazCom Program Coordinator for the center will ensure that the inventory lists are updated as well as having the MSDS sheet distributed. 67

4 , Kilauea Field Station VI. MATERIAL SAFETY DATA SHEET (MSDS) An MSDS will be provided on all required chemicals and materials used within the center. MSDSs as well as the inventory of chemicals and materials used in a specific work area for a specific work assignment will be available to personnel during their work period. These items will be placed at the following locations: Building 344 research lab Building 344 first floor hallway. Building 216 hallway. Building 343 photography lab. Building 21 entomology lab A copy of all MSDS sheets will be kept the HazCom Program Coordinator's Office. The original inventory listing and audits will be used to ascertain that there is an MSDS as may be required for each chemical or material item and that all containers are properly labeled and stored. In the event an MSDS is not available or should a new chemical or material be introduced for use without a required MSDS, the HazCom Program Coordinator should be notified immediately to have the matter corrected. VII. LABELS AND LABELING All hazardous chemical or materials on hand or received must have a label that will specify at least: The chemical name. NFPA Hazard Rating (Appendix B). Any specific warning or other hazard information. A hazardous chemical or material label will not be removed from its container, nor will such a label be defaced. 68

5 , Kilauea Field Station Should it become necessary for a label to either be introduced or replaced on a hazardous chemical or material container, such a label will display the identification and hazard information noted above. All containers of hazardous chemicals or materials will be received, and the label assured to be affixed on each and all containers by staff. It will be the responsibility of the project leader to ensure that all secondary containers are properly labeled with a duplicate of the manufacturer's label or a label containing information as noted above. VIII. INFORMATION AND TRAINING All personnel will be informed of the "Hazard Communication Program"/"Right to Know Law" at time of initial assignment or shortly thereafter. As applicable, personnel will receive Hazardous Communications training, understood the centers policy on Hazard Communication and/or received specific training relative to hazardous chemicals or materials that they will be handling in their work place (see Appendix E). General program information and training will be accomplished by lecture, photo slides, on-line training, movie, video, literature, or combination of the above, and will cover the contents of this program to include a review of the following: PIERC (Employer) policy statement (See part I) The basic definition of the regulation (see Part II) Statements of responsibility, both program and personnel (see Part III) Information relating to labels, generally those used by the center(see Part VI and information in appendices).

These changes are generally indicated by the occurrence of signs and symptoms in the exposed employees - such as shortness of breath, a non-measurable, subjective feeling. Acute effects usually occur rapidly as a result of short-term exposures, and are of long duration. The acute effects are typically irritation, corrosivity, sensitization and lethal dose. Chronic effects generally occur as a result of long-term exposures, and are of long duration. Chronic effect is often used to cover only carcinogenicity, teratogenicity, and mutagenicity. Carcinogen: A chemical is considered to be a carcinogen if: (a) It has been evaluated by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARD), and found to be a carcinogen or potential carcinogen; or (b) It is listed as a carcinogen or potential carcinogen in the Annual Report of Carcinogens published by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) (latest edition); or (c) It is regulated by OSHA as a carcinogen. Corrosive: A chemical that causes visible destruction of, or irreversible alterations in living tissue by chemical action at the site of contact. For example, a chemical is considered to be corrosive if it destroys or changes irreversibly the structure of the tissue at the site of contact following an exposure period of four hours. Highly toxic: A chemical falling within any of the following categories: a) A chemical that has a median lethal dose (LD(50)) of 50 milligrams or less per kilogram of body weight when administered orally to albino rats weighing between 200 and 300 grams each. b) A chemical that has a median lethal dose (LD(50)) of 200 milligrams or less per kilogram of body G-2 weight when administered by continuous contact for 24 hours (or less if death occurs within 24 hours) with the bare skin of albino rabbits weighing between two and three kilograms each. 80

17 , Kilauea Field Station c) A chemical that has a median lethal concentration (LC(50)) in air of 200 parts per million by volume or less of gas vapor, or 2 milligrams per liter or less of mist, fume, or dust, when administered by continuous inhalation for one hour (or less if death occurs within one hour) to albino rats weighing between 200 and 300 grams each. Irritant: A chemical, which is not corrosive, but which causes a reversible inflammatory effect on living tissue by chemical action at the site of contact. Sensitizer: A chemical that causes a substantial proportion of exposed people or animals to develop an allergic reaction in normal tissue after repeated exposure to the chemical. Toxic: A chemical falling within any of the following categories: a) A chemical that has a median lethal dose (LD(50)) of more than 50 milligrams per kilogram but not more then 500 milligrams per kilogram of body weight when administered orally to albino rats weighing between 200 and 300 grams each. b) A chemical that has a medial lethal dose (LD(50)) of more than 200 milligrams per kilogram but not more than 1,000 milligrams per kilogram of body weight when administered by continuous contact for 24 hours (or less if death occurs within 24 hours) with the bare skin of albino rabbits weighing two and three kilograms each. c) A chemical that has a medial lethal concentration (LC(50)) in air of more than 200 parts per million but nor more than 2,000 parts per million by volume of gas or vapor, or more than tow milligrams per liter but not more than 20 G-3 milligrams per liter of mist, fume, or dust, when administered by continuous inhalation for one hour (or less if death occurs within one hour) to albino rats weighing between 200 and 300 grams each. Target organ effects: The following is a target organ categorization of effects which may occur, including examples of signs and symptoms and chemicals which have been found to cause such effects. a) Hepatotoxins: Chemicals which produce liver damage. Signs & Symptoms: Jaundice, liver enlargement Chemicals: Carbon tetrachloride, nitrosamines. b) Nephrotoxins: Chemical which produce kidney damage. Signs & Symptoms: Edema, proteinuria.
