First Aid – Accidents WATER – the first line for chemical contact or burns. Do not neutralize the chemical. The reaction will release heat and cause further damage to the skin Cuts and other injuries. First aid can be applied by the instructor or the student can be referred to the campus health center. If necessary, you will be taken to the school nurse, the doctor, or the emergency room. Please keep your insurance information with you at lab.
Chemical Safety Labeling – required to communicate chemical hazard to the person using it. SDS – provides information about the chemical
What is on the SDS 0- Date of preparation 1- Identification (Formula and molecular weight) 2- Hazard identification 3- Composition / information on ingredients 4- First aid measures 5- Fire-fighting measures 6- Accidental release measures 7- Handling and Storage 8-Exposure control / personal protection
9- Physical and Chemical Properties 10- Stability and Reactivity 11- Toxocological information 12- Ecological information 13- Disposal considerations 14- Transport information 15- Regulatory information 16- Other information
Where can you find an SDS SDSs must be available in the lab in some form in case a student is injured. If the injury involves a chemical, we must have the SDS for the rescue squad.

GHS pictograms (nine) Acute toxicity (fatal or severe) Skin corrosion / burns Eye damage Corrosive to metals
Chemical Labeling - NFPA Blue – Health Hazard Red – Flammability Yellow – Reactivity White – Special symbol
NFPA Colors Blue – 4 – short exposure can cause death – ie. HCN. Blue – 2 – chronic exposure could cause possible injury – ie. ammonia gas. Red – 4 – readily vaporize and burn – propane gas. Red – 2 – must be heated before combustion can occur – fuel oil.
NFPA Yellow 4 – capable of detonation at normal temperatures – TNT Yellow 2 – violent chemical changes at elevated T / P or react violently with water – Ca metal White – ₩ – water reactive – Mg metal. OX – oxidizer – ammonium nitrate ACID - acid ALK - base COR – corrosive - radioactive

Chemical incompatibility Alphabetical storage is not used completely –Sodium cyanide with sulfuric acid?? –Acids with bases? Storage – functional groups. Organics from inorganics. Acids from alcohols. We combine the two methods. –Separate the chemicals by functional group. –Alphabetize within the group.
Waste from the labs Labeled bottles will be in the hoods. Be sure to place chemicals in the proper containers. Read the label! Do not overfill a waste bottle (2/3 to 3/4). If full, ask the stockroom manager for a new bottle. Do not use a beaker as a waste “bottle” in the hood.
Fire safety Where are the fire exits when an alarm sounds? Look next to the lab or classroom door. Always check the route in a new building / classroom. What is the procedure for exiting the building? Read the directions the first time you are in the room. What is the procedure for after you exit the building? Go outside away from the building and get together with your class. Do not return to the dorm or classroom until the professor tells you to do so. You will be instructed by the building supervisor, police, or fire personnel. Never assume that it is a drill. Always leave the building
Reporting incidents How do we report an accident? Use the reporting form available. Where are the forms – in the lab, in the stockroom, or in my office. Reportable accidents - –Hazardous chemical spills –Bodily injury –Falls –Simple first-aid –Other as determined by CSO
Accident report form Name______________________________ Date_____________ Where exposure occurred: _____________________________________________________________________ ____________________________________________________________________ Description of exposure/incident _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________ Type/name of chemical involved _____________________________________________________________________ *please send copy of the MSDS sheet for product with this form.

First Aid – Accidents WATER – the first line for chemical contact or burns. Do not neutralize the chemical. The reaction will release heat and cause further damage to the skin Cuts and other injuries. Minor first aid can be applied by the instructor or the student can be referred to the campus health center. If necessary, you will be taken to the school nurse, the doctor, or the emergency room. Please keep your insurance information with you at lab.
Housekeeping duties – during lab Broken glass - do not place into the trash cans. If glass is found in the trash, and unless we know differently, we will hold all students in the previous lab responsible. Trash – trash can – not in the sinks or in the broken glass box Chemical spills and waste – labeled bottles will be placed in the hood. Be careful to place the waste in the correct bottle if more than one bottle is present. Never fill the waste bottle over 2/3 to 3/4 full.
Housekeeping after lab Clean all glassware that you used Wipe down the benchtop (wet paper towel) Return your tray to the cabinet (organic lab) Return used glassware to the lab supply (general chem) Refill burets with deionized water Check the sinks for paper, glass, or plastic Put the chairs in the center opening of the table. Leave the area as clean or cleaner as you found it.
Chemical Hygiene Plan What is the CHP? This is a document that tells us how to handle hazardous chemicals on the BC campus. Covers. Transportation, handling, labeling etc on the BC campus. Any questions should come to Dr Crockett This will be available on line by later this term.

Quiz! You will be given a quiz covering the basic safety rules and regulations that we have covered here. When finished, you will sign and turn in the quiz. This marks your attendance in the second half of this seminar. If both the quiz and the dress code are not turned in, you will NOT receive credit for the seminar and you will no longer be allowed to work in our labs.
