should be developed to emphasize conduct of operations, hazard identification and analysis,
understanding the MSDS and hazard ratings of chemical products, and use of app ropriate
personal protective equipment (PPE). The CSLM program should also provide collocated
workers with access to technical resources such as the site MSDS database, site policies and
procedures, and SMEs.
Public protection involves operating and maintaining company- managed facilities in compliance
with applicable laws, regulations, and DOE directives. The contractor should design, construct,
and operate new facilities in a manner that minimizes the risk of exposure of individuals and
population groups to hazardous or toxic chemicals.
Where use of chemicals is necessary, the contractor should store, use, recycle, and dispose of
these materials in a manner that ensures protection of the environment and human health. The
CSLM Manager should oversee these activities through the development of appropriate policies
and procedures in conjunction with relevant functional disciplines (e.g., environmental, industrial
hygiene, fire protection, and operations).
Chemical Activity-level Components of CSLM Program
The CSLM program consists of the following 10 activity- level components, which incorporate
both ISMS and EMS principles:
Hazard identification and a nalysis
Che mical inventory management and tracking
Pollution prevention and waste minimization
Chemical emergency management
DOE and Federal requirements spanning these c hemical lifecycle activities can be found in
Volume 3 of the DOE Chemical Management Handbook , with the exception of offsite chemical
transportation and waste-related activities (i.e., identification, generation, transportation,
treatment, storage, and disposal of waste). The CSLM program should fully incorporate
applicable requirements of the contractor's ISMS and EMS.
Line manage ment should be held responsible and accountable for implementing site CSLM
program policies and procedures.
