4 Cal/OSHA Regulations Hazard Communication Proposition 65 Permissible Exposure Levels Chemical Protective Regulations

5 Hazard Communication CCR 8, § 5194 Written Hazard Communication Program Inventory of Hazardous Substances Material Safety Data Sheets Container Labeling Employee Training

6 Proposition 65 Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 Health and Safety Code §25249.5 CCR Title 22 The following employers are not subject to the Act: Any city, county, or district or any department or agency thereof

7 Permissible Exposure Limits CCR 8, § 5155 Approximately 700 substances Permissible Exposure Limits (PEL) Short Term Exposure Limits (STEL) Ceiling limits (C) Skin notation (S)

8 Chemical Protective Regulations Hazardous substances Regulated carcinogens CCR 8, § 5200 through § 5220 CCR 8, § 5209, Carcinogens Laboratory and medical Include a PEL Additional administrative procedures and control measures

9 Community Right-to-Know CCR Title 19 Hazardous materials business plan Immediate reporting of any release Thresholds 500 pounds 55 gallons 200 cubic feet Training

10 Hazardous Waste CCR Title 22 40 CFR Point of generation Storage area Accumulation and time limits Transportation Training

11 Transportation 49 CFR § 171 through 173 Correct identification Paperwork Packaging Training

12 Emergency Response CCR 8, § 3220, Emergency Action Plan Actions of District and employees to ensure safety from fire and other emergencies CCR 8, § 5192(q), Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response HAZWOPER Emergency responses for hazardous material incidents by on-site personnel

13 Storage Facility Containment Incompatible materials Separation Compressed gases Safe practices

14 Facility Located in secure areas Covered by roofing or other means Protected from heat Space Ventilation ABC Fire Extinguisher Emergency eyewash/shower

15 Containment Covered or closed containers Cabinets Drum pallets Containment berm Paved floors, no cracks or pathways

16 Incompatible Materials Ø Explosives * Gases Flammable Liquids and combustible Flammable solids * Oxidizers and Organic Peroxides Toxic materials and infectious materials Ø Radioactive materials * Corrosive materials Miscellaneous dangerous goods

17 Separation Physical barriers 1-hour fire wall Cabinets 20 feet

18 Flammable Liquids No more than 3 cabinets in one area No more than 120 gallons per cabinet No more than 60 gallons of class 1 and/or class 2 per cabinet

19 Compressed Gases Protect from heat and physical damage Separation Chains to prevent falling Valves turned off when not in use Valve covers Empty cylinders

20 Safe Practices HazCom training Forklift operator training Available MSDS Periodic inspections

21 Dispensing and Handling Flammable and combustible liquids Toxic materials Corrosive materials Compressed gases Other materials

22 Flammable and Combustible Liquids Class IA Flammable Flash point below 73ºF, boiling point below 100ºF Class IB Flammable Flash point below 73ºF, boiling point above 100ºF Class IC Flammable Flash point at or above 73ºF, and below 100ºF Class II Combustible Flash point at or above 100ºF, and below 140ºF Class IIIA Combustible Flash point at or above 140ºF, and below 200ºF Class IIIB Combustible Flash point at or above 200ºF

23 Containers Container type Class IAClass IBClass IC Glass1 pint1 quart1 gallon Metal1 gallon5 gallons Safety can2 gallons5 gallons

24 Dispensing Adequate ventilation Safety cans Bonding and grounding Other ignition sources Class B fire extinguisher Secondary containment

25 Safe Practices Keep away from fire and sparks Incompatible materials Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Ventilation Labels

26 Toxic Materials Use least toxic available Adequate ventilation Incompatible materials Buddy system PPE Wash hands thoroughly after use

27 Corrosive Materials Avoid skin contact PPE Adequate ventilation Keep containers closed Removal from containers Add corrosives to water Wash thoroughly after use Emergency eyewash and shower

28 Compressed Gases Move by hand truck Prevent falling Proper labeling Oxygen cylinders, valves, regulators clean Valve protection cap Identify empty (MT) cylinders

29 Other Substances Read the container label and MSDS Keep work area clean Protect skin and clothing Store properly

30 Hazardous Waste Definition Listed Waste Characteristic Waste Universal Waste Exempted Waste

31 Hazardous Waste Solid waste regulated under RCRA A solid, liquid, semi-solid, or contained gas Garbage, refuse, sludge, or other waste material not specifically exempted Other waste material

32 Listed Waste Hazardous wastes from non-specific sources Hazardous wastes from specific sources Discarded commercial chemical products, container residues, and spill residues California list

33 Characteristic Waste Ignitability Corrosivity Reactivity Toxicity

34 Universal Waste Usually a hazardous waste Wide variety of generation Relatively small quantities Relatively low risk Relaxed packaging requirements Bill of lading

35 Universal Waste Hazardous waste thermostats Hazardous waste batteries Hazardous waste lamps Waste cathode ray tubes

36 Exempted Waste Wastewater discharges Nuclear wastes Irrigation return flows Household wastes Coal combustion wastes Soil fertilizers used in agriculture

37 Exempted Waste Drilling mounds and brines Certain mining wastes Cement kiln dust
