Session III Personal Protective Equipment Isolate students from hazardous materials EYES HANDS BODY
OSHA REGULATIONS Teachers shall provide training to each student who is required by this section to use PPE. Each such student shall be trained to know at least the following: A. When PPE is necessary b. What PPE is necessary c. How to properly don, doff, adjust, and wear PPE d. The limitations of the PPE e. The proper care, maintenance, useful life and disposal of the PPE
OSHA REGULATION The teacher shall assess the lab to determine if hazards are present, or are likely to be present, which necessitate the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). If such hazards are present, or likely to be present, the teacher shall: select, and have each affected student use, the types of PPE that will protect the affected students from the hazards identified in the hazard assessment.
§ 115C-166. Eye protection devices required in certain courses The teacher shall ensure that each affected student uses appropriate eye or face protection when exposed to eye or face hazards from flying particles, molten metal, liquid chemicals, acids or caustic liquids, chemical gases or vapors, or potentially injurious light radiation. Defective and damaged equipment. Defective or damaged personal protective equipment shall not be used.
Eye Protection 29 CFR 1910.132 Protective eye and face devices purchased after July 5, 1994 shall comply with ANSI Z87.1-1989, "American National Standard Practice for Occupational Educational Eye and Face Protection. Eye and face PPE shall be distinctly marked to facilitate identification of the manufacturer. The teacher shall ensure that each affected student who wears prescription lenses while engaged in operations that involve eye hazards wears eye protection that incorporates the prescription in its design, or wears eye protection that can be worn over the prescription lenses without disturbing the proper position of the prescription lenses or the protective lenses.
Visitors to such shops and laboratories shall be furnished with and required to wear such eye safety devices while such programs are in progress. (1977 & 1981) § 115C-167. Visitors to wear eye safety devices
Modeling is Important! Teacher models appropriate safety behavior Wears appropriate PPE
ANSI Z87.1 IMPACT - 1 inch steel ball dropped from height 40 to 50 inches Does not impair, shatter, split, break lens, frame of eyewear Requires appropriate eyewear for the task Appropriate eyewear is standard established by Professional organizations Chemical Splash Goggles for any fluid Safety Glasses (Impact) UV Goggles Visorgogs
Types of Eyewear Chemical Splash Goggles – for any fluid Safety Glasses – impact UV Goggles – can be either impact or splash Impact Safety Goggles - impact Visorgogs – impact
Eye and Face Protection OSHA 29 CFR 1910.132 and 29 CFR 1910.133 Sterilization UV Cabinet (12-15 minutes) 70% isopropyl alcohol Swabs Wipes Elastic straps on some goggles – allow eggs of head lice to embed Use rubber straps
Hand Protection Required when there are hazards from skin absorption to harmful substances, severe cuts or lacerations, severe abrasions, punctures, chemical burns, thermal burns and harmful temperature extremes. Neoprene - for sunlight, heat, organic solvents Aluminized - for hot or cold materials Leather - for glass, bites, sharp objects, heat, cold Polyethylene - often disposable for solvents, acids, detergents Plastic latex - for general non-hazardous chemicals Nitrile for acids – organic solvents.
Clothing Open toed shoes and shoes with high heels are prohibited in the lab Short pants are prohibited in the lab Neck- ties should be removed when in the lab area. Loose jewelry is prohibited in the lab Long hair should be tied back A full length lab coat or a chemical- resistant apron is required when working with corrosive chemicals.
