Chapter 4 - On-Site Chemical Transportation
This chapter identifies and consolidates existing user safety and health requirements found in DOE
and Federal chemical-related safety and health regulations and National Standards that address the
on-site transport of non-radioactive chemicals (see definition) and chemical products (see definition).
State and local codes and requirements are NOT included. This chapter specifically consolidates
requirements found in DOE O 460.1A and DOE O 460.1B, [NOTE: This order, issued on 4/4/2003,
cancels the DOE O 460.1A], Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations
29CFR1910.101, 29CFR1910.253, and 29CFR1926.350, the American National Standards Institute
(ANSI) standard ANSI Z49.1, and the Compressed Gas Association (CGA) Pamphlets G-1 and P-1,
including technical standards that are made mandatory by their specific reference within a regulation,
rule or DOE Order.
This chapter is intended to list chemical-related safety and health requirements and to consolidate
those that are overlapping and/or duplicative. The list of requirements includes "pointers" to the
sources of those requirements.
This document does NOT create any new or additional requirements.
The information presented here applies to all transport of chemicals or chemical products on-site. It
includes hazardous materials offered for transportation on-site, and the packaging, labeling or
marking of hazardous materials for transportation on-site. [NOTE: Throughout this document, the
term "chemicals" is used to indicate chemicals and/or chemical products as described in Section 3,
below.] This chapter consolidates existing, core safety and health requirements that all sites must
follow when engaged in chemical-related activities.
The requirements included in this chapter come from sources that have different safety purposes. As
a result, some of these requirements may not always be applicable to the work being performed at an
individual site or facility. It is the responsibility of each user to determine the applicability of specific
requirements to their work and how they are implemented. The reference sources for the
requirements included in this chapter can be used to determine the applicability of those requirements
to the work being performed.
