DOE contractors through
contracts that include DOE O
Employee Emergency Plans and Fire Prevention Plans.
Maintain a list of the major workplace fire hazards and their
proper handling and storage procedures; potential ignition
sources and their control procedures; and the type of fire
protection equipment or systems that can control a fire
involving the identified hazards.
Occupational Exposure to Hazardous Chemicals in
Laboratories. Requires employee protection for work in
laboratory environments with particularly hazardous
substances, including carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and
substances with a high acute toxicity. Requires an approved
Chemical Hygiene Plan covering the tasks, hazards, and
controls before beginning the work. Upon assignment,
employees must be provided with information and training
to ensure that they are apprised of the hazards of chemicals
in their work areas. This information and training must be
provided to employees prior to the start of any work in the
area, including the start-up of any new operation or task.
Access to Employee Exposure and Medical Records.
Authorizes employee access to MSDSs or to a chemical
inventory or any other record that may reveal the identity of
toxic substances or harmful physical agents and where and
when they were used in order to give employees some idea
of their potential chemical exposures.
Comprehensive Emergency Management System. Uses a
DOE O 151.1A
hazard assessment to develop an emergency management
program that protects workers, the public, and the
environment. Additions or deletions of chemical hazards, or
changes in the magnitude of a chemical hazard from an up-
to-date chemical inventory can be used in development and
maintenance of the emergency management hazards
assessment. During an emergency response, a real-time
chemical inventory can provide the basis for consequence
assessments used for protective action determinations.
