Static electricity occurs when electrons are moved about on a surface. You can reduce the effects of static electricity by using a ground. A grounding wire to earth allows the electricity to flow to ground, rather than through your body or in the case of flammable liquid flowing through a hose or pipe, static electricity will flow to the ground, thus reducing the effects of static electricity and the possibility of sparks. Topics discussed in this safety video include flammable liquid explosions and bonding and grounding.
A suggested method for identifying hazardous material containers is the modified National Fire Protection Association System. The N.F.P.A. method which is used in addition to the original container label provides quick recognition in an emergency. Topics included in this safety video are 4 sections of the diamond-shaped warning symbol including Health section, flammability rating, reactivity signal, and special symbols, indicating properties and categories, rating systems, warning labels, sections, and classes.
This program is designed to help you understand more about chemicals and chemical safety. It's important to be informed and aware of chemicals and chemical safety. The first and most important step is to stop and read the label. Topics included in this safety video are: 4 types of chemicals (Toxic Agents, Corrosives, Flammables, and Reactives), ways in which chemicals can enter your body (Inhalation, Absorption, Ingestion, and Spillage), basic safety tips about chemicals (read the label, dress the part, follow directions, know emergency procedures, be careful and report any suspected problems, keep your work area neat, clean, and organized, store everything properly, and dispose of everything properly).
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. To help understand your responsibilities, you need to know how to react. By acting quickly, you can protect yourself and others and of course, prevent a spill from getting out of hand, that's what this program is all about.
The science of toxicology, or the science of poisons, is the study of the harmful effects of chemicals on living organisms. Scientists who study these harmful effects and assess the probability of their occurrence are called toxicologists. Topics covered in this safety video include education and knowledge, chemical labels, Material Safety Data Sheets, signs and labels, toxicity, concentration, dose, PPM, Acute Toxicity, and Chronic Toxicity, and IDLH or Immediate Danger to Life or Health.
Confined spaces and other similar locations can be unsuspecting chambers of death unless you know the hazards and are prepared to avoid risks. One of the important parts of avoiding risks is to know about hazardous air or the hazards contained in the air you're going to be breathing in confined spaces. Topics included in this safety video are gases to test (oxygen, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulfide, carbon dioxide, and many combustible or flammable gases), monitoring and what to look for, equipment calibration, frequent sampling, and compatible chemical mixtures.
S.T.E.P. stands for Safety, Training, and Emergency Preparedness. This safety video discusses what this means and explains your responsibilities in meeting current safety, health and environmental laws, rules, and procedures. The objective of the S.T.E.P. program is to provide all the information you need to help you do your job as safely as possible. Topics included in this safety video are specific precautions, principles of the S.T.E.P. program, statistics, training, HAZWOPER (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response), and hazardous materials.
If you smoke, do so only in designated areas. Good housekeeping is another basic safety tip. Check out those janitor closets and other storerooms to make sure there are no flammables or combustibles improperly stored. Keep the areas clean, neat, and organized. Topics included in this safety video are: storing oily rags, electrical motors, electrical equipment, octopus plugs, flexible cords, extension cords, trash cans, exits, fire sprinkler system, telephone numbers of emergency agencies, call the fire department, types of fire extinguishers, and smoke detectors.
Over 70,000 chemicals are used by industries. Some 15,000 chemicals are made in industrial laboratories on a large scale today and between 500 and 1,000 new chemicals are introduced each year. These simple statistics provide the basis for increased awareness, training, and responsibility when working with any type of chemicals. As the environment becomes more fragile and our responsibilities in protecting the environment and people increase, training becomes absolutely critical in meeting these responsibilities.
Before we can begin to understand the identification of hazardous materials, we first need to look at the toxicology of potentially harmful chemicals and hazardous materials. The basic purpose of identifying hazardous materials is to educate the person who comes in contact with the material, so as to provide proper information and protection for that person's health and safety.
Workers handling hazardous waste can experience high levels of stress; their daily tasks may expose them to toxic chemicals, safety hazards, biological hazards, and radiation. They may develop heat stress while wearing protective equipment or working under temperature extremes or face life-threatening emergencies such as explosions and fires. OSHA recommends a medical evaluation for employees required to wear respirators. The program presents general guidelines for designating a medical program for personnel at hazardous waste sites. In addition, it supplies a table of some common chemical toxicant found in hazardous waste sites with recommended medical monitoring procedures.
We want to review some of the key points for continuous site safety. The first key is to use all available engineering controls to eliminate or reduce site accidents. Next, safe work practices must be encouraged and implemented to eliminate or reduce site accidents and the use of personal protective equipment is particularly important when engineering controls and safe work practices are unavailable.
The adverse effects chemical substances may have on the human body necessitate the use of protective clothing. The predominant physical, chemical or toxic property of the material dictates the type and degree of protection required. The hazards encountered must be thoroughly accessed before deciding on protective clothing to be worn.
Respiratory protection and self-contained breathing apparatus' are used to protect us from harmful gases, fumes, vapors, and chemicals as well as where the air doesn't contain enough oxygen to support life. You need information and training on this type of equipment and the hazards involved before you attempt to use respiratory protection. Your organization will provide specific training, but this program is designed to give you some information about personal protection under adverse or hazardous conditions.
In responding to episodes involving hazardous substances, it may be necessary for response personnel to wear self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA), and fully encapsulated suits to protect against toxic environments. Donning and doffing of both is a relatively simple task, but a routine must be established and practiced frequently. Not only do correct procedures help instill confidence in the wearer of the suit; they reduce the risks of exposure and the possibility of damage to the suit. It is especially important to remove the equipment systematically, so as to prevent or minimize the transfer of contaminants from suit to the wearer.
The purpose of the site safety plan is to establish requirements for protecting the health and safety of responders during all activities conducted at an incident. It contains safety information, instructions, and procedures. A site safety plan must be prepared and reviewed by qualified personnel for each hazardous substance response. Before operations at an incident commence, safety requirements must be written, conspicuously posted, or distributed to all response personnel and discussed with them.
Carbon monoxide, it is a gas that can't be smelled, tasted, or seen and virtually all industries count carbon monoxide among their potential hazards. It may arise unexpectedly as the result of incomplete combustion of carbonaceous material. The incidence of carbon monoxide poisoning is unusually high in auto maintenance garages, foundries, blast furnaces, and certain chemical processes where it is used as a base chemical or generated as a waste product. CO is also a threat in non-industrial settings.
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. It's not a formal procedure so much as a way of doing business, an integrated philosophy that considers your entire operation rather than just pieces of it. Chemical Safety Management involves everyone in your company, day in and day out. It's a continuous process.
Fall protection is something that keeps you from falling from a certain height. Whenever you're working six or more feet high, OSHA requires fall protection. This program provides a quick look at the different types of fall protection.
