CONTRACTOR'S SAFETY RULES AND INSTRUCTIONS HANDBOOK P PPG Protective and Marine Coatings Little Rock, Arkansas October 2007 CONTRACTOR SAFETY ENVIRONMENTAL, SAFETY, HEALTH AND SECURITY RULES AND REGULATIONS I. INTRODUCTION Welcome to PPG. The rules discussed in this manual are not all inclusive; other rules could be added as you perform your duties in the plant. Our greatest concern is the safety and health of our employees, contractor employees, and the preservation of the environment. We have a written Emergency Action Plan and Hazard Communication Program, Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS's) for all raw materials as well as for all finished products, Safety and Health Index system Labels (SHIS Labels), and PPG's own product labels. Contractors are responsible for the training of their personnel. The Little Rock site covers 33 acres, about 15 of which are in use. Paint manufacturing occurs at this site. The manufacturing steps include raw materials receiving, charging of raw materials into process vessels, filling product in to containers, finished goods packaging, and shipping. Most of the product made is solvent-based coatings. Personnel on site are involved in the manufacturing process and support functions such as quality control, maintenance, engineering, inventory control, customer service, and administrative activities. The site complies with the Process Safety Management (PSM) Program. Covered processes under the PSM program are the manufacturing room and the solvent recovery room. Any work done in these areas must be done in compliance with PSM guidelines. 1. All contractors performing work for PPG must adhere in detail to Safety, Health and Security rules and procedures. Failure to do so will be grounds for discharge of contract employees violating the rules and or termination of all existing contracts. The designated Project Coordinator will make all interpretations for PPG INDUSTRIES. 2. All contractor employees must wear a badge or other identification supplied by PPG Security. 3. It is expected that the contractor shall be informed of and conform to all safety regulations of federal, state and local government or other regulatory agencies having jurisdiction. 4. Contractors must provide MSDS’s to the PPG Project Coordinator for all chemicals brought onto the site. 5. The use of or possession of alcoholic beverages, drug paraphernalia or drugs on the controlled substances list are not permitted on PPG premises and are grounds for immediate discharge. 6. No individual may possess, use or distribute a weapon when on the facility grounds. The Administration at PPG Little Rock will act to enforce this policy and to discipline or take other appropriate action against any individual who violates this policy. Any reports of weapons shall be investigated. A "weapon" means any object, device or instrument designed as a weapon or, through its use, capable of threatening and/or producing bodily harm including, but not limited to, any firearm, whether loaded or unloaded, firearm ammunition, air guns, pellet guns, BB guns, all knives with a blade in excess of 3 inches, metal knuckles, explosives, fireworks, pepper spray and other propellants, stun guns, arrows, or any object that has been modified to serve as a weapon. 1 7.

All unusual incidents should be reported immediately to the PPG Project Coordinator. (Accidents, injuries, damage to property, fires, etc.) 9. While the contractor has workers or material on PPG premises, a 24-hour telephone number for the contractor shall be left with the PPG Project Coordinator. Likewise a 24-hour PPG number will be supplied to the contractor. 10. Special arrangements must be made with the PPG Project Coordinator for access to the plant beyond the normal workday, on weekends or holidays. 11.

Non-hazardous liquid and solid wastes (e.g. wood, paper, cardboard, plastic, metal, etc.) generated during on-site work must be placed in designated non-hazardous waste collection or recycling containers. The PPG contact person will ensure the waste is non-hazardous and designate 2 collection or recycling containers to be used. DO NOT USE CONTAINERS OTHER THAN THOSE DESIGNATED. 3.

Should the contractor fail to remove rubbish, etc., such removal will be done by PPG at the contractor's expense. 5.
