1 Hazard Communication 29 CFR Right-To-Know 12 NYCRR Part 820 1

2 Purpose To protect employees from chemical hazards in the workplace 2

3 Hazardous Chemical Any chemical which poses a physical or health hazard 3

4 Physical Hazards Combustible liquids and flammables Compressed gases Explosives Oxidizers Pyrophorics Reactives 4

5 Flammable vs Combustible Flashpoint - Minimum temperature at which a liquid gives off enough vapor to ignite Flammable Liquid - Flashpoint <100 F (Gasoline) Combustible Liquid Flashpoint 100 F but <200 F (Diesel Fuel) 5

6 Compressed Gases Oxygen Acetylene Chlorine Nitrogen 6

7 Explosives/Blasting Agents 7

8 Oxidizers Initiates or promotes combustion in other materials 8

9 Pyrophorics Will ignite spontaneously in air at or below 130 F 9

10 Reactives When stored or used improperly, some chemicals can react with themselves or other chemicals and release dangerous materials 10

11 Health Hazards Evidence exists that acute or chronic health effects may occur in exposed employees 11

12 Acute vs Chronic Acute effects appear promptly after exposure, usually within 24 hours Chronic delayed effects following repeated, long duration exposure 12

13 Types of Health Effects Carcinogens Toxic agents Reproductive toxins Corrosivity Irritants Sensitizers 13

14 The ability to cause injury to a living system Neurotoxin Hepatotoxin Nephrotoxin Dermaltoxin Cardiotoxin Toxicity 14

15 Routes of Exposure Inhalation Ingestion Absorption Injection 15

16 Dose Response Concept The effect of a chemical depends upon the amount and duration of exposure A substance could be helpful in small doses (drug remedy) but harmful in larger doses (poison) 16

17 Hierarchy of Controls 1. Engineering Controls substitution, elimination, ventilation, enclosure 2. Administrative Controls work practices and employee rotation 3. Personal Protective Equipment Last resort because hazard still exists 17

18 How to Protect Employees Implement Effective Program Evaluate chemical hazards in workplace Transmit information to employees 18

19 Hazard Communication Program Written Program Training Chemical List HazCom Program Labeling Maintain MSDS 19

20 Develop Chemical List Evaluate workplace and develop list of hazardous chemical products present Also add to list those hazardous chemicals produced in workplace 20

21 Examples of Common Hazardous Chemical Products Fuels Asphalt Paints Cement Pesticides Road salt Calcium chloride 21

22 Other Common Hazardous Chemical Products Welding rods Oils and greases Hydraulic fluids Coolants Solvents and cleaners Oxygen and acetylene Battery electrolyte Adhesives 22

23 Safety Data Sheets Obtain SDS for all hazardous chemicals present or produced Obtain from manufacturer, distributor, retailer, or on-line resources Organize SDS so they may be located quickly SDS must be readily accessible to employees during all shifts 23

24 Information Required on SDS 16 sections click on this link for the review of the 16 sections, then go to on-line database and show a sample, review the 16 sections 24

25 Labeling New requirements for labeling go to the video and show the requirement for labeling as well as the pictograms. 25

26 Hazard Communication Training Must be provided upon initial assignment and when new chemical hazard is introduced 26

27 Training Must Include: Summary of the standard and the program Hazardous chemical properties and methods that can be used to detect their presence or release Physical and health hazards associated with exposure Procedures to protect against hazards Spill and leak procedures Location of MSDS and written program 27

28 Right To Know NYS law requiring that employees be provided with annual training on toxic substances in the workplace Must be provided during working hours, with no loss of pay, and in location convenient to worksite Required to keep records of training 28
