DOE-HDBK-1139/1-2000
Change Notice No. 1
moves from one phase to another, incorporates evolving technologies, or adjusts to
changes in prioritization and budget, the set of contractual requirements for
chemical management should be continuously evaluated as a part of the ISM self-
assessment process. DOE G 450.3-3, "Tailoring for Integrated Safety Management
DOE G 450.3-3
Applications," can be used to guide the review and evaluation of work controls for
managing chemicals.
1.2 Analyze the Hazards
Hazards from chemicals are identified, analyzed, and categorized prior to work
being performed. A "hazard" is defined by DOE G 450.4-1A as a source of danger
DOE G 450.4-1A
(i.e., material, energy source, or operation) with the potential to cause illness,
injury, or death to personnel or damage to a facility or the environment (without
regard to the likelihood or credibility of accident scenarios or consequence
29 CFR 1910.1200,
mitigation). OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (29 CFR 1910.1200)
Hazard
Communication
defines a hazardous chemical as any chemical that poses a physical or health
hazard. EPA defines hazardous wastes in 40 CFR 240-299 [(implementing
regulations for the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)].
Use of an integrated approach to hazard analysis will result in effectively
identifying site and facility hazards, including chemical hazards and the hazards
associated with the disposal of the hazardous chemicals. Analysis can begin at
these levels by assessing chemicals present in quantities greater than the threshold
quantities (TQ) found in 29 CFR 1910.119 and 40 CFR 355. These materials are
29 CFR 1910.119
generally analyzed from the process safety perspective, i.e., potential for a
catastrophic accident with immediate consequences.
Information from these hazard analyses can then be used as the basis for more
detailed analysis at the activity or task level. At this level, hazards associated with a
worker's exposure to chemicals, as a result of their daily activities, are assessed.
