1 OSHA Requires That if there are chemicals at your work site… You must be trained in Hazard Communications

2 Hazard Communication, Labeling, and the MSDS

3 OSHA Requires That when you use a chemical, the MSDS be readily available – Good rule of thumb: Within 50 feet indoors Within 100 feet outdoors – The custodial department has more MSDS’s than any other department – Custodial has one book on each floor in each building

4 OSHA Hazard Communication Training Basic Orientation Level Area-Specific Training Job-Specific Training

5 OSHA Standards CFR 29, Parts Hazard Communication Universal Precaution (HIV/Hep B) Injury and Illness Emergency Procedures Hearing Conservation

6 OSHA Standards CFR 29, Parts Respirator Industrial Truck (Fork Lift) Confined Space Fire Extinguisher Lock Out Protection

7 OSHA Standards CFR 29, Parts Crane Radiation Safety There are also rules on: – Asbestos, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), Lead, Mercury, and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

8 Government Regulatory Acts The College is responsible for compliance with many government regulations.

9 EPA Environmental Protection Agency Clean Air Clean Water TOSCA RCRA (Hazardous Waste) CERCLA (Superfund) SARA (Title III) EPCRA (Right to Know) Endangered Species

10 EPA Definition of Hazardous Waste … any garbage, refuse, sludge from a waste treatment plant, or air pollution control facility and other discarded material, including solid, liquid, semi-solid, or contained gaseous material resulting from industrial, commercial, mining, and agricultural operations, and from community activities… – Ignitable – Corrosive – Reactive – Toxic

11 OSHA Definition of Hazardous Substance “…a substance or material that presents a physical or health hazard.”

12 OSHA Physical Hazards Bodily harm can result from the physical properties of the substance.

13 OSHA Physical Hazards Compressed gases Flammable materials Explosives Corrosives Reactives

14 OSHA Health Hazards Exposure can adversely affect an individual’s health.

15 OSHA Health Hazards Irritation Sensitization Organ damage Cancer

16 OSHA Toxic Effects of Materials Acute Chronic

17 OSHA Toxic Effects of Materials Acute – Sudden exposure – High concentration of toxic material – Rapid reaction with body tissue

18 OSHA Toxic Effects of Materials Chronic – Repeated exposure to small concentrations – No immediate reaction to exposure – Effects appear long after exposure

19 OSHA Routes of Entry The four ways toxic materials can enter the body

20 OSHA Routes of Entry Inhalation Most common route of entry – Rapidly absorbed in lungs and passed to bloodstream – Vapors and gases – Particulates – Aerosols and gases

21 OSHA Routes of Entry Absorption through the skin Reaction with surface skin Skin penetrated—sensitization Multiple skin layers penetrated and toxin enters bloodstream and causes systemic poisoning

22 OSHA Routes of Entry Ingestion – Usually not intentional Keep food away from chemicals Wash hands before eating, drinking, or smoking

23 OSHA Routes of Entry Injection – Materials enter through broken skin Cuts Sores Burns Scratches
