                              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. Any use of equipment, change of work methods, or movement of PPG material or equipment not
   described at the outset of work shall be cleared through the PPG Project Coordinator prior to
   performance of work.

8. 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. The contractor's employees will be permitted access only to those areas necessary for the
    performance of contractual work. Under no circumstances are the contractor's employees allowed to
    tour or roam the plant or to enter areas not necessary to the performance of their work.

12. The PPG Project Coordinator shall assign the following areas for use by contractor's employees:

    • Entrance
    • Break Area
    • Lunch Area
    • Toilet Facilities
    • Smoking Area
    • Material Storage Area
    • Parking Area

13. No personal vehicles are allowed in the plant. Any vehicle, which must be driven into the plant, must
    be cleared through the PPG Project Coordinator. No more than two (2) company vehicles may be
    parked inside the perimeter fence. These vehicles must have the company name prominently
    displayed on the outside of the vehicle. All closed type vans, trucks, car trunks, toolboxes and other
    contractor vehicles and equipment are subject to inspection by a duly authorized PPG representative
    while on PPG premises.

14. No PPG products or other PPG materials are for sale.

15. All equipment or appurtenances supplied by PPG or purchased for installation are the property of
    PPG. Excess materials shall not be removed from the plant without written permission of the PPG
    Project Coordinator.

 II. HOUSEKEEPING

 1. Job site housekeeping is the contractor's responsibility, and the job site must be as clean and orderly
    as possible while work is being performed.

. 2. 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. Many liquid and solid wastes are hazardous wastes due to ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity,
    toxicity, or because they are listed hazardous wastes. Examples of hazardous wastes include but
    are not limited to unused paint, resin, thinning, solvents or cleaning solvents; sand blast media
    contaminated with paint residue; piping or equipment grossly contaminated with paint, resin or raw
    materials; soil, gravel or concrete, which is contaminated with paint, resin or raw materials; paper or
    cloth wipers and personal protective equipment contaminated with paint or resin; etc. Hazardous
    wastes must be properly packaged, labeled, stored, manifested, and disposed of at licensed facilities.
    The PPG contact person will ensure that hazardous wastes generated by contractor activities are
    collected and labeled. PPG will coordinate final disposal of all hazardous wastes generated by on-
    site contractor activities.


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

5. At the completion of the work, the job site must be left in an acceptable condition. The PPG Project
   Coordinator will make a final inspection to determine the adequacy of the final cleanup.

Contractors Safety Training Documentation

I have read and studied my copy of the Contractor Safety Rules and Instruction Handbook. I will wear required
protective equipment, follow the safe practices as outlined, and do everything I can to prevent injuries to myself and
fellow workers. I further understand that this certification is good for one (1) year from the date of training.
