7
Using a Fire Extinguisher
  • Remember the acronym P A S S
  • P -- pull the pin
  • A -- aim the nozzle
  • S -- squeeze the trigger
  • S sweep from side to side

8
Hazardous Materials
  • A hazardous material is any substance that
    presents a physical or health hazard.
  • OSHA requires that employees understand the risks
    and know how to handle hazardous substances.
  • Physical hazards can cause fire or explosions.
  • Health hazards can cause be acute (short) or
    chronic (long) term.

9
OSHA Occupational Safety Health Administration
  • Requires that
  • All substances must be labeled
  • Labels must identify
  • physical health hazards
  • precaution measures
  • PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)
  • directions for using substance safely
  • storage and disposal information
  • labels MAY NOT be removed

10
Standard (Universal) Precautions
  • Used to reduce the risk of exposure of skin or
    mucous membranes that could come in contact with
    materials that may contain blood-borne pathogens
  • MAY include protective barriers such as
  • Gloves
  • Gowns
  • Aprons
  • Masks
  • Protective eyewear

11
What are Standard Precautions?
  • They do not apply to
  • feces

  • vomit
  • unless these contain visible blood or are likely
    to contain blood.
  • Precautions that apply to
  • blood or other body fluids containing blood
  • semen
  • vaginal secretions.

However, most facilities adopt the policy of
using PPE when in contact with any of these body
fluids.
12
Transmission Based Precautions
  • Required, in addition to Standard Precautions,
    where airborne, droplet and contact transmission
    of infectious organisms may occur.
  • Common transmission based precautions include
  • hand washing
  • cleaning sanitation of surfaces.

13
FOUR WAYS TO SPREAD GERMS (Transmission of
Germs)
  • 1. Airborne or respiratory route
  • 2 .Direct contact route
  • 3. Fecal-oral route
  • 4. Blood contact route

14
STANDARD PRECAUTIONS How to Practice
  • Handwashing
  • Gloves
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Sanitizing
  • 5. Waste Disposal
  • 6. Immunization

15
ADDITIONAL PPE
  • Mask

    detailed information about
  • Product company identification
  • Ingredient information
  • Hazard identification
  • First aid measures
  • Fire fighting measures
  • Accidental release measures
  • Handling storage
  • Exposure controls/ PPE
  • Stability reactivity

19
MSDS
  • Employees (students) must know the location of
