For this assignment you are provided a template in word posted below the video on this page. Your professor created a video using an SDS of Clorox bleach. Post your selected SDS to the discussion board on blackboard and wait for you professor’s go ahead to begin. You are allowed to use the SDS from ENT 1102 Health and Safety. Be sure to post the name of the material the weblink to the SDS (or the SDS pdf) to the discussion board.
The major objective of process safety management (PSM) of highly hazardous chemicals is to prevent unwanted releases of hazardous chemicals especially into locations or that could expose employees and others to serious hazards. An effective process safety management program requires a systematic approach to evaluating the whole chemical process. Using this approach, the process design, process technology, process changes, operational and maintenance activities, and procedures, nonroutine activities and procedures, emergency preparedness plans and procedures, training programs, and other elements that affect the process are all considered in the evaluation before using the chemical.
Process Safety Information
1. List the Hazards of the Chemicals Used in the Process from the SDS. the information to be compiled is about the chemicals, including process intermediate steps. Your document needs to be comprehensive enough for an accurate assessment of the material.
Pre-starting safety review
Using the what if table make a list of possible accidents that could happen during the handling of the material.
|What If?||Answer||Likely hood||Consequences||Recommendations|
Technology of the Process make a flow chart of how the chemical is going to be used.
I suggest you use excel, LUCID charts or draw.io to make the flow chart.
Make a list of the process you would take to training your employees. Use the SDS information as a guide.
Make a list of the process you would take for the handling of the material from arrival at your venue through storage after it is used. Use the SDS information as a guide.
Read your what if list. Use the list and your SDS to create an accident plan.
What did you learn?
(After doing this process are you still comfortable using this material or do you want to find a new material? If so, what is the new material and why is it better?)
- Turn in your PSM document in the assignments tab, OSHA folder, PSM SDS assignment.
2. Turn your power point presentation of your PSMS on the discussion board, in the PSMS tab. Add it to the thread your created for your chemical selection.
