1 Hazardous Materials Management
Lesson 3 Hazardous Materials Management

2 Lesson 3: Objectives Be able to identify and inventory unwanted and unserviceable hazardous materials (HM). Learn how to obtain and catalog material safety data sheets (MSDSs). Be able to determine hazardous material compatibility. Know how to maintain and extend shelf life.

3 Lesson 3: Objectives Understand how to select HM storage units.
Be able to set up storage areas. Know how to stock a HM storage location. Know how to maintain and track HM inventory.

4 Unwanted And Unserviceable HM
Materials that have been partially used and are no longer wanted Type I shelf-life items that have expired Out-of-date Type II shelf-life items with containers that do not pass visual inspection

5 Inventory Unwanted or Unserviceable HM
Place all unwanted or unserviceable HMs in the HWAA Gather all information from the materials (i.e. name, manufacturer, MSDS serial #, quantity, etc..) Turn in these materials in accordance with the KSARNG Turn-in Waste Fact Sheet

6 Excess or Unwanted Serviceable Hazardous Materials
Excess quantities, if still serviceable and in unopened containers, will be turned in to the U.S. Property and Fiscal Office (USP&FO) warehouse, or transferred to other units in need of the products As a last resort, they can be turned in as a waste The key to avoiding excess HM is to maintain accurate inventories and control

7 Obtaining MSDSs Provided by distributor when delivered
HMIRS Telephone manufacturer or distributor DOFE-E

8 Cataloging MSDSs Required by OSHA for every hazardous material
Located at or near the storage location Master MSDS binder must be available for employee review (right-to-know center) Archive old MSDSs

9 Cataloging MSDSs MSDSs must be stored near, but not necessarily within, the storage location. The MSDSs must be kept close enough to the storage area that soldiers using the materials within the storage location do not have to physically leave the area to obtain an MSDS.

10 Hazardous Material Compatibility
Incompatible materials must be segregated when transported and stored Contact between incompatible materials can result in violent reactions, splattering, explosions, fires, or the release of toxic gases

11 Hazardous Material Compatibility
DoD Hazard Characteristic Code (HCC) System Obtain an MSDS from the HMIRS for each product Locate the HCC on the MSDS HCC

12 The DoD HCC System Look in the storage segregation matrix to determine where the product can be stored

13 HCC Storage Matrix

14 The DoD HCC System If HCCs are not available on the MSDS:
Use DOT labeling information and cross reference with HCC matrix OR Use applicable container markings to acquire a temporary HCC from matrix OR Use physical properties to determine the appropriate HCC

15 Managing Shelf Life Shelf life is the time a product remains useful for the user A shelf-life item is a supply item that may deteriorate over time At the unit level, the DoD shelf-life program has two purposes: To maintain high quality chemicals ready for use To reduce waste from expired chemicals

16 Types of Shelf Life Type I Type II
Containers MUST have an expiration date Generally not extendible Type II Containers MUST have a test date or inspection date Extendible

17 Shelf Life Codes and Dates
Code identifies expiration or inspection date Specific to a shelf-life item Type I items have alphabetical codes Type II items have numeric codes

18 Before Extending Materials Check For The Following
Leakage, broken glass Rodent/insect infestation Hardening/liquefying Bulging container Rust, caking, powdering Liquid evaporation/condensation Proper label

19 Shelf Life Extension Information
Contact Kevin Durkes at USP&FO for extension information

20 Selecting HM Storage Locations
All HM must be stored in designated and approved containers, cabinets, and enclosures, such as: DOT-approved drums Flammable storage cabinets (only for flammable or combustible materials) Limited access storage rooms

21 Selecting HM Storage Locations
HM should not be put into trays, cups, bottles, or other unapproved containers When not in use, HM must not be stored in unauthorized locations (wall lockers, foot lockers, mechanic’s tool boxes, on top of work benches, in vehicles, or inside desks)

22 Setting Up Storage Areas
Select a well-ventilated site indoors or a site outdoors that is under cover and fenced or otherwise secured Do not set next to floor drains Have accessible, nearby chemically compatible spill response equipment

23 Procuring Hazardous Materials
Order only what you can use Order materials that can be used before their shelf life expires Use less hazardous substitutes – buy green Use excess materials from other shops

24 Stocking A Hazardous Material Location
Incompatible materials must be segregated in storage Flammable materials must be stored in a cabinet with a two-hour fire rating, with fire extinguishers nearby Applicable warning signs (“No Smoking”) must be posted in plain view Larger container should be towards the bottom

25 Why is it Important to Stock Hazardous Materials Properly?
Risks of fire and explosion Damage or corrosion of containers Exposure of personnel and the environment to harmful chemicals Material losses and increased supply costs Increased time and expense required to manage inventory Increased regulatory compliance issues Increased hazardous waste generation

26 Stock Rotation

27 Secondary Containment
Secondary containment is a physical barrier designed to collect and contain spills of solids or liquids Secondary containment is vital to prevent spills from migrating into the soil or water

28 Housekeeping It is critical that HM storage areas be kept neat, clean, and orderly Make sure all labels are visible Maintain unobstructed aisles Stack containers properly and do not exceed stack heights Paper, debris, and wood (other than wood pallets) which might catch fire should be kept out of HM storage areas Perform frequent inspections

29 Emergency Equipment Spill response materials Fire extinguisher PPE
Appropriate tools Overpack Drums Communication devices and alarms

30 Hazardous Material Inventory
Annual HM inventories are extremely important to ensure that all of the materials necessary to support your mission are in stock, and that the unit does not have any excess HM inventories Annual HM inventories help reduce hazardous waste, help ensure that inventory storage procedures are followed, and ensures compliance with all applicable regulations

31 Inventory Requirements
An inventory of all HMs that are stored on the property must be continually maintained Materials that do not need to be included on the inventory generally include office supplies (pens, markers, typewriter correction fluid), medications, food or beverages, or materials that do not have a warning label or an MSDS

32 Inventory Requirements
Items to be included in the annual inventory include (at a minimum): Petroleum, Oil, and Lubricant (POL) products Solvents Industrial cleaners Fuels Pesticides and Herbicides Any item with a prominent warning label Paint and paint-related products

33 Inventory Requirements
HM inventories should be cross-referenced with each product’s MSDS Complete and submit a HM inventory no later than 31 December each year to the units’ local emergency service provider (typically the local fire department) and DOFE-E Send completed inventories to James Tubach via

34 Hazardous Material Inventory
Determine the need for the materials noted during the inventory Facilities may use the standard HCI form that was developed by DOFE-E, or create one locally

35 Hazardous Material Inventory
If the HM inventory is created locally it should include: Item nomenclature and common name NSN Manufacturer Unit of issue, on hand quantity, and storage location MSDS Serial # Shelf-life code and expiration or retest date Hazard Characteristic Code (If applicable)

36 HM Management Program Summary
KS SOP requires all KSARNG units and activities to take the following steps in managing HM: Update and submit HM inventories annually Turn in excess HM for redistribution Obtain MSDSs for all hazardous materials received Segregate HM according to hazard and compatibility Remove HM from unauthorized storage areas Store materials according to applicable regulations Ensure proper spill response/fire extinguishing equipment and materials
