              Examples and explanations
              Description

              Use of the substances in high integrity contained system where little potential exists for exposures,
              e.g. any sampling via closed loop systems.
              Continuous process but where the design philosophy is not specifically aimed at minimizing
              emissions. It is not high integrity and occasional expose will arise e.g. through maintenance,
              sampling and equipment breakings.
              Batch manufacture of a chemical or formulation where the predominant handling is in a contained
              manner, e.g. through enclosed transfers, but where some opportunity for contact with chemicals
              occurs, e.g. through sampling.
              Use in batch manufacture of a chemical where significant opportunity for exposure arises, e.g. during
              the charging, the sampling or discharge of material, and when the nature of the design is likely to
              result in exposure.
              Manufacture or formulation of chemical products or articles using technologies related to mixing and
              blending of solid or liquid materials, and where the process is in stages and provides the opportunity
              for significant contact at any stage.
              Processing of product matrix. Calendering at elevated temperature and large exposed surface.
              Air dispersive techniques, Spraying for surface coating, adhesives, polishes/cleaners, air care
              products, sandblasting; Substances can be inhaled as aerosols. The energy of the aero-sol particles
              may require advanced exposure controls; in case of coating, overspray may lead to waste water and
              waste.
              Sampling, loading, filling, transfer, dumping, bagging in non- dedicated facilities. Exposure related to
              dust, vapour, aerosols or spillage, and cleaning of equipment to be expected.


              Filling lines specifically designed to for both, capturing vapour and aerosol emissions and minimise
              spillage.
              Low energy spreading of e.g. coatings. Including cleaning of surfaces. Substance can be inhaled as
              vapours, skin contact can occur through droplets, splashes,
              Air dispersive techniques. Spraying for surface coating, adhesives, polishes/cleaners, air care
              products, sandblasting, Substances can be inhaled as aerosols. The energy of the aero-sol particles
              may require advanced exposure controls;

              Immersion operations (OU5);
              Treatment of articles by dipping, pouring, immersing, soaking, washing out or washing in substances;
              including cold formation or resin type matrix. Includes handling of treated objects (e.g. after dying,
              plating,); Substance is applied to a surface by low energy techniques as dipping the article into a bath
              or pouring a preparation onto a surface.


              Use of substances at small scale laboratory (< 1 l or 1 kg). Larger laboratories and R+D installations
              should be treated as industrial processes.
              Covers the use of material as fuel sources (including additives) where limited exposure to the product
              is its unburned form is expected. Does not cover exposure as a consequence of spillage or
              combustion.
              Lubrication at high energy conditions (temperature, friction) between moving parts and substance;
              significant part of process is open to workers or to the environment.
              The metal working fluid may form aerosols or fumes due to rapid moving metal parts; exhausted
              cutting fluids need to be disposed off as waste.
Use as lubricant where significant energy or temperature is applied between the substance and the
moving parts.
Addresses occupations where intimate and intentional contact with substances occurs without any
specific exposure controls than PPE.
Motor and engine oils, brake fluids; Also in these applications, the lubricant may be exposed to high
energy conditions and chemical reactions may take place during use. Exhausted fluids need to be
disposed of as waste. Repair and maintenance may lead to skin contact. Leakage during use may
lead to environmental exposure.
Manual cutting, rolling or assembly of material/article, possibly resulting in the release of fibres or
rubber fumes;
Activities at smelters, furnaces, refineries, coke ovens.
Exposure related to dust and fumes to be expected.
Emission of direct cooling may be relevant.
Sand and die casting, tapping and casting melted solids, raking melted solids paving;
Exposure related to dust and fumes to be expected;
Emission of direct cooling may be relevant.
Substantial thermal or kinetic energy applied to substance by grinding, mechanical cutting, drilling or
sanding. Release of solids (dust) or fumes to be expected.
Welding, soldering, gouging, brazing, flame cutting. Exposure is predominantly expected to fumes
