    waste, such that unauthorized persons do not have
    access.
  • Do not store mixed hazards. Separate flammables,
    corrosives, metals and others.

17
Chemical Hazards

    injury to humans, animals or the environment.
  • These include those classified as flammable,
    corrosive (acids or bases), irritants, toxins,
    carcinogens, mutagens, teratogens, oxidizers,
    explosives, light sensitive, cryo, peroxide,
    compressed gases, etc.

18
Chemical Hazards

    environmental damage, such as drugs and hormones.

19
AREA NOTIFICATION
  • Anyone entering as part of work or research must
    be trained concerning the hazards in their
    workplace.
  • All labs using hazardous chemicals should have
    the chemical in use posted on the door and
    limited access.

20
Hazardous ChemicalHandling, Storage and Waste
  • Handle, store and dispose of hazardous chemicals
    as described in the MSDS.
  • All chemicals, solutions and waste must be
    properly labeled.
  • Do not store mixed hazards. Separate flammables,
    corrosives, metals, . . . .

21

25
Handling CORROSIVES (Acids/Bases)
  • Concentrated solutions of acids and bases must be
    used in a Chemical Fume Hood. Note that these
    are not HEPA filtered biological hoods, used to
    culture cells. Never breath acid or base fumes.
  • Acids and Bases should be washed off immediately
    with water. Check for burns.
  • Add Acid into Water to disperse the heat when
    diluting.

  • separate from corrosives and metals.

27
Handling Explosives
  • Explosives should be used in explosion proof
    rooms and in the proper environment.

BIOLOGICAL HAZARDSDefinitions
  • Hazardous biologics are those that will cause
    injury to humans, animals or the environment.
  • These are classified by Biosafety Level (BSL),
    which refers to the mode of transport and the
    level of infection.
  • BSL 1 is a normally occurring biological at
    environmental levels which may cause limited
    pathogenesis in humans, animals or plants. BSL 1
    are allowable on campus.

41
BSL 1 Definition
42
BIOLOGICAL HAZARDS
  • BSL 2 are classified as having potential for
    pathogenesis but not airborne transport. Low
    potential for vector infection or death. UMES is
    working toward a BSL 2 lab. We cannot order BSL
    2 biologics to date?
  • BSL 3 are classified as being pathogenic and
    airborne transport. High potential for vector
    infection. These biologics usually result in
    death. We cannot order BSL 3 or higher biologics
    to date.

43
(No Transcript)
44
AREA BSL NOTIFICATION
  • Anyone entering as part of work or research must
    be trained concerning the hazards in their
    workplace.
  • All labs using biologics should have the level of
    the biologic posted on the door and limited
    access.
  • Yellow BIOSAFETY warning notices, for research
    with BSL 2 or higher, must be posted on the
    exterior door.

45
HANDLING HAZARDOUS BIOLOGICS
  • Ordering of BSL materials must be approved by the
    EHS and the BSC.
  • BSL 1 require minimum protection of gloves and
    goggles.
  • BSL 2 require limited access and exposure and
    should not be used without prior instruction from
    EHS and the UMES Biosafety committee.
  • BSL 3 and higher are not allowed on campus at
    this time.

46
BIOSAFETY DISINFECTION
  • Surfaces used with biologics must be disinfected
    by the method described in the MSDS.
  • At a minimum, this includes the use of a
    disinfecting compound or device, such as UV
    light.
  • Gloves, even unused, may not be worn outside the
    laboratory.

47
HAZARDOUS BIOLOGICAL WASTE DISPOSAL
  • Biologics, including media, and cells, should be
    autoclaved before disposal.
  • Use a regular PE bag and autoclave tape to
    autoclave BSL 1 level biologics and trash.
  • Use a sealed box inside a regular PE bag and
    autoclave tape to autoclave BSL 1 spent needles
    and sharps.
  • The BIOSAFETY orange autoclave bags and/or sharps
    disposal boxes are reserved for use with BSL2 and
    higher.

48
HAZARDOUS BIOLOGICAL WASTE DISPOSAL
  • Disposal procedure and the label must follow the
    instructions provided for Hazardous Biological
    Waste Disposal located on the EHS website
  • www.umes.edu/EHS
  • Label all hazardous chemical waste bottles, with
    the appropriate EHS label prior to conducting the
    experiment.

49
Biological Waste Disposal Procedure
50
Charge for Waste Disposal
  • Your grant/department will be charged for all
    hazardous waste disposal. This may be included
    in the overhead of grants.
  • Unknown waste costs 4000/bottle. Please label
    materials and waste.
  • It is a violation to dump your waste in another
    area. It must disposed from the area from which
    it was generated.

51
Penalties for Violation
  • You can be fined 1000 per day per violation by
    either UMES, any state authority or any federal
    authority.
  • If you knowingly violate any UMES mandates, you
    will be fined and face possible imprisonment.
  • If you witness any violations, you should report
    those to EHS immediately.

71
Laboratory Safety
  • In addition to learning experimental method, a
    purpose of this laboratory is to train students
    to develop good, safe work habits.
  • To establish these habits, these guidelines
    assume that the student is always exposed to the
    most hazardous situation, use with the strong,
    toxic, reactive corrosive, flammable chemicals.
    In reality, you probably will not be exposed to
    these in our labs.
  • We expect any student at doctoral level of
    training to have the ability to make an informed
    decision on how to protect themselves.

72
Laboratory Safety
  • Another purpose of this class is to train
    students for professional employment.
  • Therefore, the students must follow the
    guidelines outlined by the Pharmacy Faculty
    Coordinator, their TA and the UMES guidelines.
  • We also strongly encourage the students not to
    request any exceptions from these rules.
