What are the Precautions When Working with Hazardous Materials

This 4 minutes safety training video covers: How to properly handle and store materials that will minimize the physical and health hazards of it, what are the appropriate safe storage conditions for the material, what are the proper engineering controls to use, what are the proper ppe to wear to minimize the risk of exposure, what is the section that describes the physical and chemical properties of a material, why is it important to identify the properties of the materials, what is stability and reactivity of a material. This clip was taken from a full-length training video. Click here to watch the 17 minutes full length version.

Section 7 provides information about handling the chemicals safely, critical safety precautions such as avoid breathing vapor and keep chemical away from ignition sources. Information about how to store the chemicals safely also included in this section including any incompatibility with other storage material. Safe exposure limits are provided along with appropriated methods to reduce the worker’s exposure such as engineering controls and personal protective equipment. Important physical and chemical properties are listed in section 9 including order threshold, evaporation rate and flashpoint. Section 10 deals with stability and reactivity in other words how stable is a chemical and are hazardous reactions to incompatible materials or specific environmental conditions and possibility.
