3Chemical Receiving Chemical shipments < 5 gal: received through front door> 5 gal: received at loading dock ONLYGas cylinder - either
4Chemical Receiving OSU personnel receiving chemical shipments: Be trained as DOT hazmat employees.Take chemicals directly into the lab area.Spill outside in the loading dock area:Contact HP Spill Emergency Response Team via HP security ( )
5Chemical Transporting Move chemicals on stable cartsCapable of containing a spill of the largest container.Isolate incompatible chemicalsseparate impervious traysother adequate secondary containment.
6Chemical Inventory Electronic with web access Checked/updated monthly. Include:names of chemicalshazard classesamountslocation.Maintain the facility as a B-occupancy.Enter new shipments immediately.
7Chemical Acquisition Chemicals on inventory Purchase without review New combined quantities must not exceed UFC limits
8Chemical Acquisition Chemicals not on inventory: submit request to EH&S for review prior to ordering.Provide current MSDS.EH&S determines hazard class, quantity, PPE, proper waste handling.
9INDOOR Chemical Spills – Small MBI personnel shall clean up incidental spills that meet all of the following criteria:less than five feet in diameterwithin the control of the operator of the processnot flowingwithin the facility.Spill response report (w/copy to EH&S) after incident – describe event in full detail.<Five feet - MBI>5 feet – OSU EH&S –
10INDOOR Chemical Spills – Large EH&S Spill Response Team (SRT) shall clean up spills that meet any of the following criteria:greater than five feet in diameternot within the control of the operator of the processflowingSpill response report (w/copy to EH&S) after incident – describes event in full detail.<Five feet - MBI>5 feet – OSUEH&S
11OUTDOOR Chemical Spills HP Spill Emergency Response Team (SERT) shall clean up all spills that meet the following criteria:outside the facility.Spill response report (w/copy to EH&S) after incident – describes event in full detail.
12Chemical Storage By hazard class. Storage over 5 foot in height suitably restrained.Store in appropriate chemical cabinets –Special lab chemical storage units with doors or restraints for general chemicalsHaz mat cabinets for more hazardous chemicals (flammable, reactive, toxic, corrosive - acids and bases separately.)
13Labels Keep labels on containers until empty. Label secondary containers (e.g., beakers, flasks, bottles, used in experiments) with:chemical name,hazard information,date of transfer,identity of person transferring chemical.
14Storage Area LabelsChemical storage cabinets and areas must be labeled as to their contents. The label must be visibly displayed on the door and be visible.
15Chemical Waste Determination All chemical waste needs a hazardous waste determination by EH&S.Wastes determined NOT to be hazardous may have limited disposal options.
16Chemical Waste Disposal MBI: conditionally exempt small quantity generator.DEQ generator ID number for waste handling and disposal.ORDXXXXXXXXX
17Chemical Waste Disposal Hazardous wastesLeave facility on hazardous waste manifestSent to permitted facilities identified on the OSU waste contract.Waste shipmentsMinimum of once every year.More often if needed.
18Chemical Waste Storage Segregate Chemical wastes from new chemicals (haz mat cabinet).Separate incompatible wastes.
19Chemical Waste Storage No chemicals disposed down sinks.Label wastes in HW cabinet with:chemical contentInitial date of generationthe words “hazardous waste”.
20Chemical Containers Rinse empty chemical containers prior to disposal. Treat first rinse as waste.Multiple rinses may be required.
21Handling Chemicals Use fume hood for airborne chemicals Use proper PPE:Safety eyewearGlovesFull shoesLab coatRespirator??
22Respirator UseIf you need to use a respirator, you need to do paperworkFull use – medical evaluation, training, fit testVoluntary use – acknowledgment form
