Hazardous Spill Cleanup - What is a hazardous material? It’s a material that may endanger your life or health, the life or health of others, or cause damage to your facility or the environment. To handle hazardous material spills, your organization has developed procedures to control spills and emergencies.
Most of us are familiar with large oil spills, hazardous waste, and materials and certainly we understand the need for clean air. This is perhaps EPAís major problem to solve. Clean air is easy to talk about, but difficult to control or make cleaner. Understanding the problem can go a long way in educating people about air quality and why itís so important. The Clean Air Act is the comprehensive Federal law that regulates air emissions from area, stationary, and mobile sources.
More and more companies that use hazardous chemicals are turning to an approach called chemical safety management. Chemical Safety Management, also known as Chemical Process Safety Management or Risk Management Planning, can help you identify potential risks at your site and establish an organized method for reducing those risks. Itís not a formal procedure so much as a way of doing business, an integrated philosophy that considers your entire operation rather that just pieces of it. Chemical Safety Management involves everyone in your company, day in and day out. Itís a continuous process.
Indoor Air Quality - Most people are aware that outdoor air pollution can damage their health, but may not know that indoor air pollution can also have significant harmful effects. US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies of human exposure to air pollutants indicates that indoor levels of many pollutants may be 25 times and occasionally more than 100 times higher than outdoor levels.
