  12. 12. Chemical Hazard Analysis!  Reactivity is an intrinsic property of a material "  Understand the nature of the material "  Training is very important "  Use control measures!  Mitigating Flammability and Health Hazards "  Engineering controls "  Proper PPE "  Removing ignition sources "  Less important than Reactivity for Hazard classification? 243rd National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, San Diego, CA – March 27, 2012 Distribution Statement A: Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; PA# _________________ 12
  13. 13. Measure of Chemical Hazards!  Use MSDS to determine the values associated with ◦  Reactivity, Health, Flammability and Special properties ◦  See if SPECIAL Property (Ox, Water Reactive) exists ◦  Rate in the order "  Reactivity > Health > Flammability ◦  HAZARD RATING (HazRat) Proposal (single digit) ◦  Special weights (Can be customized based on Engineering Controls)? "  Special – ALWAYS a review and elevates risk to MAXIMUM "  R = 0.65, H = 0.25, F = 0.10 or R=0.34, H = 0.33, F = 0.33 HR (HazRat) = R*0.65 + H*0.25+ F*0.10 (HMIS) HR (HazRat) = R*0.34 + H*0.33+ F*0.33 (NFPA) Can be tuned based on engineering controls, trainings, PPE 243rd National Meeting of the American Chemical Society, San Diego, CA – March 27, 2012 Distribution Statement A: Approved for public release, distribution unlimited; PA# _________________ 13
