                                6
Chemical Safety
    TOXICITY -- the ability of a chemical substance to
     cause harm
    HAZARD -- likelihood a material will cause harm
     under the conditions of use
       With proper handling, even highly toxic
        chemicals can be used safely
       Less toxic chemicals can be extremely
        hazardous if handled improperly.


                                                          7
Exposure to Toxic Chemicals
   Exposure to toxic agents can have severe
    consequences, including death
   These injuries can occur in any area where toxic
    chemicals are handled
   Most chemical injuries could have been avoided
       If these people had had the proper equipment, if they
        had been using the proper techniques and if they had
        had adequate knowledge, such as exposures probably
        would not have occurred.

                                                                8
Chemical Safety
    Keep worker’s exposure below the Permissible
     Exposure Limit (PEL)
        PEL’s are regulatory limits set by OSHA on the amount or concentration
         of a substance in the air.

    Plan in advance for potential hazards
    Designate a person to manage chemical safety
    Train and inform workers
    Label ALL chemical containers
    Keep file of MSDS for all chemicals used (EHS)
                                                                                  9
Have a Plan that includes:
    Standard operating procedures (SOP)
    Exposure control measures
    Fume hood & personal protective equipment
    Information & Training
    Chemicals that require prior planning & approval
    Working with Particularly hazardous substances
    Emergencies


                                                        10
Key to Working Safely …..
 Understand the Hazards!
    Know and prepare for hazards in advance
    Review Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)
        Physical and Health Hazards
        Exposure signs and symptoms
        Protective measures
        Emergency procedures
    Read all labels
    Know your protocol / procedures
    Remember, some chemicals may have delayed toxic
     effects on the body
                                                       11
Physical Hazard …..
    Hazards due to physical characteristics of a chemical
   Flammable - catches fire easily and burns rapidly
   Combustible - will burn under most conditions
   Explosive - will explode / detonate releasing hot gases
   Oxidizer - yields oxygen to enhance combustion, may cause ignition
    of combustibles with no external source
   Organic peroxide - uniquely hazardous, potentially explosive
   Unstable - tends to decompose during normal handling and storage
   Water reactive - reacts with water to release flammable gas,
    causes fire or presents a health hazard
                                                                         12
Health Hazard ……
 Produces acute or chronic effects in exposed workers
    Carcinogen - cause cancer or suspected to cause cancer
    Toxic Agent - poisonous / cause acute or chronic effects
    Reproductive toxin (teratogen) - could have harmful
     effect on male or female reproductive system or on
     developing fetus
    Irritant - can cause inflammation of skin or eyes
    Corrosive - cause irreversible damage to living tissue
    Sensitizer - cause exposed person to develop allergies to
     the substance
    Target organ-specific agents - hazardous to specific
     organs in body (e.g., lungs, liver, blood, kidneys, nervous   13
     system)
Route of Entry….
For a chemical to have an effect on a worker, s/he must be
exposed to it and some of it must get into his/her system
    Inhalation / breathing - most common route, gases / vapors
     can pass to blood, solid particles inhaled into lungs
    Absorption through the skin - many solids, liquids, vapors and
     gases can be absorbed through the skin
    Ingestion / swallowing - while not intentional, failure to wash
     hands, eating in contaminated lab, etc.
    Injection - accidents handling glass, sharps, etc.
    Eye Contact - either physical damage or absorption


      The route of entry dictates selection of protective
                           equipment                                   14
Signs & Symptoms ….
How will you know if you have been exposed?
    Dose - Amount of chemical absorbed depends upon chemical
     strength / concentration, exposure duration, frequency of exposure
       In general, the greater the dose, the more severe the health
         effects
    Acute effects - occurs rapidly following brief exposure (e.g., acid
     burn)
    Chronic effect - develops/recurs slowly, over long period
     following repeated, long-term, low-level exposure (e.g., benzidine
     linked to bladder cancer)
    Individual variability - not all people exhibit the same signs
     and symptoms (especially to chronic effects)
                                                                           15

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
    Always wear PPE:
       Good lab practice

           Eye protection for workers

           Wear enclosed goggles or face shield over safety glasses if
             chance of splashing or shattering
       Shoes, lab coat, long pants (gives protection from falling objects and
        spills/splatters)
       Plastic/rubber apron for caustics/corrosives

       Correct gloves for chemical

       Never reach into liquids, use tongs for retrieval




                                                                                 17
(Chemical) Fume Hood

    Ventilated enclosure that protects you from being
     exposed to chemical fumes, gases and aerosols
     generated within the hood
    Room air drawn into the hood is vented out the stack
    Hood should always be ON during use
    Lower sash to marked (< sash level >) position



                                                            18
Fume Hood Inspection Program

    Regular inspection
    Tested for adequate flow
    Results labeled on hood
    Safe sash level marked
       (< sash level >)

                                Never use an unsafe fume hood

                                                                20

Fume Hood Considerations
    Turbulence caused by:
        Rapid hand movements in / out of hood
        Obstructions at airfoil
        Persons walking by creating disturbance
    Limit Sash Area
        Performance improves as sash opening decreases
        Keep at or below the “safe” (< sash level>) level



                                                             23

     working with container - do not store
     waste containers open with funnels in
     opening, do not evaporate solvents as a
     means of disposal.
    Ensure all containers are labeled - no
     abbreviations or formulae



                                               27
Safe Storage ….

    Gas Cylinders




                                         28
Flammable Liquid Storage …..
    Keep quantities below allowable storage
     limits (SY08 Storage, Dispensing and Use of
     Flammable Liquids)
    UL-approved safety cans
    Store flammable liquids in an approved
     storage cabinet (combined total volume of
     liquids not greater than 120 gallons with no
     more than 60 gallons of Class I or II).
    No more than 3 storage cabinets per fire
     area.
                                                    29
Corrosive Material Storage …..
    DO NOT store acids and bases together
    Material should be stored in cabinets

   fire or explosion
  Oxidizers supply oxygen to a fire

 Water-Reactive:
  Chemicals that react with water, water vapor or moist air

  Produces a flammable or toxic gas

 Pyrophoric:
  Chemicals that ignite on contact with air

  Flame may often be invisible
                                                               31

  do not use electrical equipment in a flammable atmosphere (I.e.
    electrical plug strip in a fume hood)
                                                                     37
Pollution Prevention
 Buy Less, Use Less, Store Less!
    keep volatile chemical containers capped.
    store chemicals in vented cabinet, don’t use fume hood for
     storage
    keep waste solvent containers capped when not using
    substitute less hazardous chemicals
    avoid mercury, EHS exchanges thermometers
    redistribute surplus chemicals through EHS
    Provide secondary containment for 55 gallon drums of potentially
     polluting materials that are located in areas where they could leak
     into a drain or escape to the environment.

  Training is offered on a regular schedule by Environmental Health and Safety (EHS). Check EHS
  Homepage:www.ehs.psu.edu for available dates and times.
______________________________________________________________________________________

  CONTAINER LABELING: All hazardous waste containers must have a red waste
  tag at the time waste is first placed into the container. The red Chemical Disposal Label
  must accurately identify the content of the container.

  EHS supplies secondary containers and red tags. Call EHS if you need
  supplies or additional instructions.
______________________________________________________________________________________

  CONTAINER CLOSURE: Hazardous waste containers must be closed at all times
  during storage, except when waste is being added or removed.

  Keep containers closed. Regulations do not permit open funnels in waste
  containers.
______________________________________________________________________________________

  STORAGE: For safety and environmental reasons, hazardous waste must be stored in a
  designated "Satellite Accumulation Area". These areas must be inspected weekly for
  container leakage, labeling, chemical compatibility and to determine that total volume
  does not exceed 55 gallons. Closed, properly labeled containers that are partially filled may
  remain in a Satellite Accumulation Area indefinitely.

  If you have full waste containers, please fill out a Chemical Manifest form available
  on our web page, www.ehs.psu.edu.
