HAZARDOUS MATERIAL MANAGEMENT PLAN Office of the Fire Marshal Glendale Fire Department December 2005
2 The City of Glendale Arizona has adopted the International Fire Code (IFC), including appendix chapter B, 2003 Edition. If your business uses, stores or handles hazardous materials and quantities exceeding the Permit Level Amounts of Hazardous Materials stated in the International Fire Code, you are required to obtain an annual Hazardous Materials Permit from the Glendale Fire Department. The permit constitutes permission to maintain, store, use or handle materials, or to conduct processes that produce conditions hazardous to life or property, or to install equipment used in connection with such activities. Information contained in this file will provide instruction on how to complete the General Occupancy Information Form, the Hazardous Materials Management Plan, and the Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement as required by the fire code. Renewals shall be submitted 60 days prior to expiration of permit. Please complete all forms and return them within 10 business days. These forms must be submitted on a CD in Excel format. If you have any questions or comments regarding the forms, please contact the Fire Marshal’s office at (623)
3 PENALTIES Failure to comply with the fire code, false statements or misrepresentations of information provided in the submittal may result in a criminal complaint being issued for violation of Section of the fire code which is a class one misdemeanor punishable by a fine of not more than $2,500 or imprisonment not exceeding one year, or both such fine and imprisonment. The permit may be suspended or revoked when it is determined that the permit was issued in error or in violation of an ordinance, regulation or code.
4 PLEASE NOTE The person responsible for completing these reporting forms should have a good understanding of the chemicals and processes used in each operation, should know how to use material safety data sheets, and possess a basic understanding of building construction. Our goal has been to make this reporting process as user-friendly as possible, but the complexity of certain operations may involve a high degree of knowledge and technical skills that can make this reporting process very difficult to complete for the average person. We suggest that you purchase a copy of the 2003 International Fire Code for reference. We recommend that a third party reporting agency be consulted to complete these forms if you have difficulty in their preparation.
5 RESOURCES This CD also contains the following resources: Occupancy Information Form Hazardous Material Inventory Statement Form (HMIS) List of Definitions Key symbols for Facility Map Reference Tables: IBC table , IFC , IFC , IFC , IFC
6 INTENT To provide instruction on the preparation and submittal of the General Occupancy Information Form, Hazardous Material Management plan (HMMP) and the Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement (HMIS) in order to meet compliance with the requirements of the City of Glendale Fire Code.
7 RESPONSIBILITY Persons responsible for the operation of areas in which hazardous materials are stored, dispensed, handled or used, shall be familiar with the chemical nature of the materials and the appropriate mitigating actions necessary in the event of fire, leak, or spill.
8 WHEN IS A HAZARDOUS MATERIALS PERMIT REQUIRED? A City of Glendale Hazardous Materials Permit is required to store, transport on site, dispense, use, or handle hazardous materials that equal or exceed amounts listed in Table of the International Fire Code. Table is included in the attached tables folder.
9 WHEN IS A OCCUPANCY INFORMATION FORM AND A HMIS REQUIRED TO BE FILLED OUT AND SUBMITTED? Whenever a Fire Department Permit is required to store hazardous materials.
10 WHEN IS A HAZARDOUS MATERIAL MANAGEMENT PLAN (HMMP) REQUIRED TO BE FILLED OUT AND SUBMITTED? When: Hazardous materials exceed EXEMPT amounts specified in the Fire Code; Fire Code requires exterior or detached storage of hazardous materials; If any part of the structure is rated as a “hazardous occupancy” SARA Title III extremely hazardous substance is used, handled or stored on site in quantities requiring a Fire Code permit and which are above threshold planning quantities; When otherwise determined necessary by the Fire Marshal because of unique circumstances.
11 WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A HAZARDOUS MATERIAL INVENTORY STATEMENT? An HMIS consists of a spreadsheet listing the following information for each individual control area: Product name or chemical name Hazard classification Chemical state and quantities stored or dispensed Storage conditions.
12 WHAT IS INCLUDED IN A HAZARDOUS MATERIAL MANAGEMENT PLAN? An HMMP is a site-plan indicating the following information: Storage and use areas (control areas) Location of emergency isolation and mitigation valves and devices. Product conveying piping containing liquids or gases, other than utility-owned fuel gas lines On and off positions of valves for valves that are of the self indicating type Storage plan showing the intended storage arrangement, including the location and dimensions of aisles The location and type of emergency equipment. The plans shall be legible and drawn approximately to scale. Separate distribution systems are allowed to be shown on separate pages.
13 WHAT IS A “CONTROL AREA” Control areas are spaces in a building or outside, where hazardous materials (not exceeding the maximum quantities allowed by the international fire Code) are stored dispensed, used, or handled. A building may have multiple control areas, provided the maximum allowable quantities within a single control area are not exceeded. Control areas shall be separated from each other by not less than a 1-hour fire barrier. Floor areas shall be separated by not less than a minimum rating of 2 hours. The maximum number of control areas in a building shall be in accordance with IBC table A copy of table is provided in the tables folder.
14 What are the advantages of Control Areas? They provide an alternative method to a Group H occupancy classification. A high-hazard occupancy classification can be avoided, provided there are no control areas that contain in excess of the maximum allowable quantities indicated in IBC table They regulate quantities of hazardous materials per control area rather than per building area. Control areas, in conjunction with the maximum allowable quantity tables in , utilize a density concept for hazardous materials. Without control areas, the maximum allowable quantities for a hazardous material would be limited to a single building area regardless of the overall size or height of the building.
15 IBC TABLE ALSO KNOWN AS IFC TABLE
18 PLEASE FOLLOW EACH OF THE FOLLOWING STEPS TO COMPLETE THE GENERAL OCCUPANCY INFORMATION FORM AND THE HAZARDOUS MATERIAL INVENTORY STATEMENT
19 STEP 1 Refer to IFC table for each type and quantity of hazardous material that is stored on your property. A material safety data sheet (MSDS) should be used to obtain the correct information for each chemical. The retailer or manufacturer can provide this data sheet to you.
20 An MSDS sheet is required to be submitted with each separate hazardous chemical listed on the HMIS that does not have a CAS number. MSDS sheets can be submitted in hardcopy format or preferably copied to the CD with the HMIS.
21 Referring to table Determine if any one chemical contained at your site equals or exceeds the amounts listed, or the total aggregate amount of the hazardous materials in the same classification exceed the amounts listed next to each classification. If so, a permit is required. NOTE: For retail and wholesale storage and display in Group M occupancies and Group S storage, see also IFC Table
24 STEP 2 Determine the accurate “Occupancy Classification” for your building and each specific area where hazardous materials are stored. This information should be obtained from either the building or fire departments. It is possible to have multiple classifications. Examples: Assembly Group A Business Group B Educational Group E Factory Group F High Hazard Group H Institutional Group I Mercantile Group M Residential Group R Storage Group S Utility and Misc. Group U
25 STEP 3 Determine how many inside and outside control areas are located at your site. ( See IBC table ).
26 STEP 4 Complete the General Occupancy Information Report The General Occupancy Information Report form is located on the CD in Excel 2000 format. The form is self-explanatory. Accurate occupancy classification and type of construction are important. This information can be obtained from the Glendale Building Safety Department at (623) if you are not sure. It is required that you submit this report on a CD along with the HMIS (and HMMP if required). A signed copy of the Occupancy Information report is required to also be submitted on hardcopy
27 General Occupancy Information Form Example:
28 If you submitted either an HMMP or a HMIS last year and “no” changes have taken place on either form, you do not have to resubmit another copy. Complete an updated General Occupancy Information Form and enter the date of last year’s submittal in the block provided.
29 STEP 5 A separate Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement (HMIS) is required for each separate control area. A copy of the HMIS is contained on this disk in Excel format. Additional copies of the HMIS can be made from disk for each control area.
30 STEP 6 Fill in the company name, control area, address, and date at the top of the page. If the control area is protected by an approved automatic fire extinguishing system, please mark “yes” in the space provided.
31 Item # Use this space to indicate each separate item that you are logging. The correct format is 1,2,3,4, etc. Product or Chemical Name The official name of the product. Material Classification What is the common classification of the product (Combustible, flammable liquid, explosive, oxidizer, organic peroxide, flammable solid, etc.) Class For products that break down into different classifications (example: Class 4 oxidizer, or Class III organic peroxide). Column descriptions:
32 Quantities in brackets indicate quantity units in brackets at the head of each column. 10 Gallons  Pound
33 REPORTING GUIDELINES Mixtures shall be classified in accordance with hazards of the mixture as a whole. When a material has multiple hazards, all hazards shall be addressed. If the aggregate total for any product/chemical meets or exceeds the permit levels in any classification then they shall be reported. If the products/chemicals to be bulked are stored/used in different control areas in your facility, each location will require a separate entry on the HMIS. Products/chemicals that are in temporary locations (awaiting transport on shipping dock, etc.) shall be reported from their primary or permanent location.
34 CONVERSION Where quantities are indicated in pounds and when the weight per gallon of the liquid is not provided to the fire code official, a conversion of 10 pounds per gallon shall be used.
35 CAS# - CAS Registry Numbers, (often referred to as CAS RNs or CAS Numbers) These are unique identifiers for chemical substances. A registry number itself has no inherent chemical significance but provides an unambiguous way to identify a chemical substance or molecular structure when there are many possible systematic, generic, proprietary, or trivial names. A CAS (Chemical Abstracts Service) Registry Number is a unique identifier that tells you, for example, that acetone and dimethyl ketone are actually the same substance. From a safety and inventory perspective, CAS numbers uniquely identify a chemical, but not necessarily the manufacturer or concentration. Storage The keeping, retention, or leaving of hazardous materials in closed containers, tanks, cylinders, or similar vessels or vessels supplying operations through closed connections to the vessel. Storage is divided into that of solids, liquids and gases.
36 Use-Closed System Use of a solid or liquid hazardous material involving a closed vessel or system that remains closed during normal operations where vapors emitted by the product are not liberated outside of the vessel or system and the product is not exposed to the atmosphere during normal operations; and all uses of compressed gases. Examples of closed systems for solids and liquids include product conveyed through a piping system, into a closed vessel, system or piece of equipment. Storage is divided into that of solids, liquids and gases.
37 Use-open system The use of a solid or liquid hazardous material involving a vessel or system that is continuously open to the atmosphere during normal operations and where vapors are liberated, or the product is exposed to the atmosphere during normal operations. Examples of open systems for solids and liquids include dispensing from or into open beakers or containers, dip tank and plating tank,operations. Storage is divided into that of solids and liquids. NFPA 704 Hazard Identification ratings system (the familiar NFPA "hazard diamond" shown on the right) for health, flammability, and instability. These numbers can be obtained from the MSDS or The NFPA's Fire Protection Guide to Hazardous Materials.
38 Cabinets If this chemical is stored in an approved hazardous material cabinet, check “yes”. Or “no,” if it is not. Safety Cans If this chemical is stored in an approved safety can, check “yes.” Or “no,” if it is not.
39 15 PSI This only applies if the chemical is a flammable or combustible liquid. If it is flammable or combustible, and it is stored or used at pressures greater than 15 psi, enter “Y” for yes. Otherwise enter “N” for no..
40 STEP 7 Prepare a Hazardous Material Management Plan (if required). A basic drawing of the facility site is required. The following items need to be included: Storage and use areas (control areas) Location of emergency isolation and mitigation valves and devices Product conveying piping containing liquids or gases, other than utility-owned fuel gas lines On and off positions of valves for valves that are of the self- indicating type Storage plan showing the intended storage arrangement including the location and dimensions of aisles. Location and type of emergency equipment. Plans shall be legible and drawn approximately to scale. Separate distribution systems are allowed to be shown on separate pages. Business name, address, person who drew the plan, and their phone number with area code.
41 The Hazardous Materials Management Plan needs to be drawn and transferred to a CD. It is required to be submitted with the Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement.
42 Included on this CD is a reference sheet which provide key symbols to be used for drawing the Facility Map.
43 HMMP EXAMPLE
44 PHOTOGRAPHS Digital photographs of the control areas, storage areas, mixing areas, and any other process or area that will help illustrate your operation are encouraged. Digital photographs are a tremendous asset to firefighters if they are dispatched to your business for an emergency. Photographs take some of the guesswork out of the lay of the building, which can improve firefighter safety.
45 FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS How will this information be used? It will benefit the Fire Department in the prevention, control a mitigation of dangerous conditions related to storage, dispensing, use, and handling of hazardous materials; and when responding to emergency calls to your facility. Is it necessary for me to report each chemical in the facility? Yes Exceptions: 1. The quantities of alcoholic beverages, medicines, foodstuffs and cosmetics, containing not more than 50% by volume of water-miscible liquids and with the remainder of the solutions not being flammable, in retail sales, occupancies are unlimited when packaged in individual containers not exceeding 4 liters. 2. Application and release of pesticide products and materials intended for use in weed abatement, erosion control, soil amendment, or similar applications. Do I have to use the forms provided? Yes. It is important that we maintain uniformity in our records for all facilities reporting information.
46 How often must I complete a Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement? Annually, when you renew your permit. Also, an amended HMIS shall be provided within 30 days of the storage of any hazardous materials which changes or adds a hazard class or which is sufficient in quantity to cause an increase in the quantity which exceeds 5% for any hazard class. Is it important that I submit copies of the Hazardous Materials Inventory Statement? Yes. This will assist you in preparing the forms the following year. Do I need to submit the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) with this form? Yes, for all chemicals that do not have a CAS number. Preferably copied to CD.
47 INFORMATION SUBMITTAL FOR RENEWAL OF HAZARDOUS MATERIALS PERMIT ONLY Submit CD with completed General Information Form, Hazardous Material Inventory Statement (HMIS) and (if required) the Hazardous Material Management Plan (HMMP), along with a signed hardcopy of the General Information Form to: Glendale Fire Marshal Hazardous Materials Unit 6835 N. 57th Drive Glendale, AZ FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION, TENANT IMPROVEMENTS AND ANY RELOCATION Submit CD with completed General Information Form, Hazardous Material Inventory Statement (HMIS) and (if required) the Hazardous Material Management Plan (HMMP), along with a signed hardcopy of the General Information Form to: Glendale City Hall 2 nd Floor, Suite 263 Fire Department Plans Review 5850 W.
