SURVEY OF HAZARD ASSESSMENT FOR PERSONAL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT Department: ______________________________________________ Job Title: _________________________________ Supervisor’s Name: ________________________________________ Date: _____________________________________ Eye and Face Protection (1910.133) YES NO If yes, please describe the job task and hazard. Does the employee work in areas where there is exposure to eye and face hazards from flying particles, molten metal, liquid chemicals, acids, caustic liquids, chemical gases or vapors or potentially injurious light radiation? Respiratory Protection (1910.134) YES NO If yes, please describe the job task and hazard. Does the employee work in areas where effective engineering controls are not feasible to protect the health of the employee from harmful dusts, fogs, fumes, mists, gases, smokes, sprays or vapors? Head Protection (1910.135) YES NO If yes, please describe the job task and hazard. Does the employee work in areas where there is a potential for injury to the head from falling or moving objects or are they are exposed to electrical conductors which could be contacted by the head? Foot Protection (1910.136) YES NO If yes, please describe the job task and hazard. Does the employee work in areas where there is danger of foot injuries due to falling and rolling objects, or objects piercing the sole, and where such employee’s feet are exposed to electrical hazards?

  38. 38. Chemical CompatibilityChemical Compatibility Chemical Compatibility Glove Material: NITRILE Challenge Chemical Degradation Breakthrough Time Permeation Rate lsopropanol E >480 min. .001 Breakthrough Time: The elapsed time between initial contact of the chemical on the glove surface and the analytical detection on the inside of the glove. Typically expressed as a greater than symbol (>), the example shows the test was run for 480 minutes and then stopped. Also may be expressed as 'ND" for none detected Degradation: A change in one or more of the physical properties of a glove due to contact with a chemical. Can appear as a swelling, softening, shrinkage or cracking of the material. Rating example is “E" for excellent, meaning the glove has little or no signs of degradation when exposed to the challenge chemical. A good degradation rating does not guarantee an acceptable breakthrough time. Permeation Rate: The rate at which a chemical passes through a glove material. This process involves absorption on the glove surface, the diffusion of the chemical through the material, and the desorption on the glove's inside surface. This is a complex measurement: pg/cm2/MIN (micrograms per square centimeter per minute). This measurement is also limited to the 'LDL" or Lower Detection Limit of the equipment used. The example given is .001, but is sometimes expressed as 'E" or 'P" for excellent or poor.
