TASK TO BE PERFORMED (brief description)




SAFETY MEASURES CONSIDERED                     (x)
Elimination             Elimination of chemical is not an option
Substitution            Substitution of the chemical is not an option
Isolation               Isolation of hazard in a fume cabinet is used for this procedure
Engineering             Engineering features of the fume cabinet ensures the hazard stays in the hood
Administration          Administration controls are applied through strict laboratory procedures
Personal
Protective              PPE is used throughout the procedure

OVERALL RISK RATING


Risk Rating Assessment ( taking into account the Control Measures to be used)
Low              Minor loss of containment. ie. small spill. Unlikely harm to personnel. Unlikely harm to environment.

                 Loss of containment i.e. winchester spillage or minor fire, no structural damage; slight risk of minor injuries/harm to
Medium
                 personnel; no long term environmental damage

                 Major loss of containment i.e. drum spillage, fire, some structural damage; possible injuries/harm to personnel; some long
High
                 term environmental damage

Very High        Total loss of containment, major fire, major structural damage; injuries/harm to personnel would require hospitalisation
