Title: Environmental, Health and Safety You, the Customer and NCH


1
Environmental, Health and SafetyYou, the
Customer and NCH

2
NCH has a proactive Environmental, Health
Safety (EHS) program with the goal to prevent all
injuries, damage to property and environmental
impacts.
NCH wants you to share in our belief that all
accidents and incidents are preventable. To
achieve that goal, you must be able to identify
and correct hazards on the spot or know where to
get help.

3
This orientation provides you with information
about rules and regulations, specific site
conditions, safe work practices and NCHs
expectations that you need to know in order to
perform your job safely.To work safely, you
will have to gather additional information on
these topics for every site on which you work.
When working in any facility, whether owned by a
customer or by NCH, you are expected to comply
with all environmental, health and safety (EHS),
standards, policies and procedures established by
the facility. When your job requires that you
work at a customer location, you must consult
with the customer about their EHS programs,
hazards and accepted practices. You and the
customer should agree to comply with the more
stringent EHS requirements the customers or
NCHs.
An Essential Element of NCHs EHS Process Is
Knowledge

EMERGENCY PROCEDURES
  • Notifications
  • Alarms
  • Evacuation

7
NOTIFICATION
  • In the event of an emergency, many plants will
    use a paging system, alarm or siren to notify
    employees and contractors of the following types
    of emergencies or conditions.
  • You should know the different types of
    notifications and what to do if a notification is
    made in any place that you work.
  • Tornado / Hurricane / Earthquake
  • Usually you will be required to report to a
    designated shelter.
  • Fire / Explosion / Bomb Threat
  • Follow instructions given by Plant Personnel
    quickly and calmly.
  • Floods / Rising Waters
  • Follow instructions given by Plant Personnel
    quickly and calmly.
  • Sprinkler and/or Fire Alarms Out of Service
  • May require that you modify or curtail
    activities.

8
EVACUATION ALARM
  • At some facilities you may be authorized to
    trigger an alarm in the event of an emergency.
    Know what to do before an emergency occurs.
    Instructions may be something like this -
  • Evacuation Alarm System
  • activate the emergency alarm system using the red
    fire alarm switch located by each exit door
  • evacuate the building and go to the designated
    assembly area
  • Report to the emergency coordinator in the
    assembly area giving your name, work location
    and reason for activating the alarm.
  • Learn your responsibilities and authority before
    you start work at any location.

9
EVACUATION PROCEDURE
  • In the event an evacuation is required, remember
    these steps.
  • Exit through the closest emergency exit door that
    is safe.
  • Proceed to a designated assembly area, the front
    of the building or the designated area for
    Contractors and Visitors.
  • Wait in the designated area and follow
    instructions provided by emergency response
    personnel.
  • DO NOT LEAVE the assembly point until instructed
    to do so.
  • DO NOT ENTER the building unless and until
    approved by emergency response personnel.

10
COMPLIANCE WITH REGULATIONS
  • There are many regulations, codes and rules that
    apply to EHS. You must know the basics of these
    requirements to do your job safely and you must
    know who to contact if you need more information.
  • Federal
  • State and Local
  • NCH EHS Policies and Procedures
  • Customer EHS Policies and Procedures
  • As a Contractor or Service Provider, you are
    expected comply with all applicable governmental,
    state, and local environmental, health and safety
    laws, regulations, rules and codes and NCH's EHS
    requirements and rules.
  • Where NCH requirements and rules are more
    stringent than the customers, NCH regulations
    and rules should govern your actions.

11
GENERAL SAFETY RULES
  • Many facilities have general safety policies not
    prescribed by regulations. These are important
    for safe operations and you must abide by these
    requirements unless they are in conflict with a
    regulatory requirement. Examples of these
    requirements include
  • All contractors must sign-in and pick-up an
    identification badge at the main lobby upon
    arrival and sign-out when leaving even if only
    leaving the property for supplies or lunch.
  • All vehicles and personnel entering or exiting
    the facility are subject to inspection.
  • Smoking is not allowed except in designated
    smoking areas. Where fire hazards are great,
    smoking materials may be prohibited with the
    plant boundaries altogether.

12
GENERAL SAFETY RULEScontinued
  • Possession and /or use of alcohol, illegal
    narcotics, fire arms or other weapons is
    prohibited.
  • Jewelry is strictly prohibited No rings,
    watches, bracelets, dangling neck chains or
    earrings, etc.
  • All work activity shall be performed in a manner
    that will minimize interference with normal
    operations.
  • Contractor employees shall remain in their
    assigned work areas unless there is a need to be
    elsewhere.
  • No loitering in maintenance shop, cafeteria,
    restrooms, smoke room, etc.
  • Aluminum cans, glass bottles, butane lighters and
    matches are prohibited.

13
IDENTIFICATION BADGE
  • Many companies, including NCH, require employees,
    contractors and visitors to have an
    identification badge for entry and identification
    purposes. Below are some ID badge requirements
    common to many manufacturing locations.
  • Every employee is required to have an company
    issued ID badge to gain entrance and work in the
    facility.
  • Badges must be worn by the employee at all times
    and returned to the designated area prior to
    leaving the facility.
  • Contractors must sign IN and OUT each time
    they enter or leave the facility.
  • ID badges often contain important information
    such as emergency telephone numbers and emergency
    procedures.

14
IDENTIFICATION BADGE
  • Many companies include important information on
    the identification badges they issue. Check the
    front and back of the ID badge to see if it
    contains the following
  • Emergency Information such as notification
    procedures,
  • evacuation procedures, and responsibilities.
  • Personal Protective Equipment required in plant
    operations
  • General Safety rules for the plant
  • Names and telephone numbers for Emergency,
    Environmental
  • and Safety / Health Contacts

15
CONTRACTOR SAFETY PLAN
  • Many employers require that a Contractor Safety
    Plan be developed for each awarded contract.
    These plans usually require you to
  • Identify specific job hazards and protective
    measures you will employ to do the work safely
  • Conduct daily or weekly inspections
  • Have the plan posted at the job location or
    otherwise viewed by employees daily
  • Be returned to the contract representative upon
    completion of the job

16
HAZARD COMMUNICATION
  • Right to Know
  • MSDS
  • Hazardous Materials

17
Your Right To KnowSome chemicals can pose
serious health and safety hazards if you are
exposed to them in sufficient quantities. The
health or safety effects may occur immediately
(acute) or they may occur over a long period of
time (chronic). You may not even know you have
been exposed to some chemicals because they lack
warning properties such as smell or irritation.
The best way to prevent adverse effects is for
you to know the potential hazards of all
chemicals with which you work so you can protect
yourself and others. NCH believes that you have
the Right-to-Know about these potential hazards
and urges you to secure information on the
chemicals used in all places you work.  
HAZARD COMMUNICATION
18
There are two places you can readily find
information on the hazards of the chemicals with
which you work the container label and the
Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS).Container
LabelEvery chemical container must be labeled
with the chemicals identity and its associated
hazards.MSDSIt is important to always read the
MSDS prior to using any chemical. The MSDS
contains information of the chemicals hazards,
precautions for safe use and what to do in the
event of an emergency.Most employers, including
NCH, require a copy of a MSDS for all chemicals
brought on site.
HAZARD COMMUNICATION
19
  • MEDICAL EMERGENCIES
  • ACCIDENTS
  • INJURIES
  • EMERGENCIES

20
MINOR INJURIES
  • If you are injured on the job, you are required
    to inform your NCH supervisor and contract
    representative as soon as possible even if it
    is a minor injury that only requires first aid.
    They will notify the appropriate persons and
    determine if a first report of injury needs to be
    completed.
  • Customers often require contractors to report all
    injuries or illnesses to them as well. This may
    be a contractual requirement so check with the
    contract administrator or your designated
    contact.

21
SERIOUS INJURY and/or ILLNESS
  • If you suffer an injury or illness that requires
    more than first aid, you must notify the proper
    authorities where you are working as well as the
    appropriate NCH persons.
  • If you suffer a serious injury or you witness the
    serious injury of another person, you must know
    how to make the appropriate notifications. Learn
    the procedure for each facility in which you work
    such as the example shown below.
  • Locate the nearest phone and call 557 to page
    the CPR team using the plant intercom system
  • Give the Location of the emergency - use column
    numbers or give a department name
  • If a First Responder does not report call 9-911
    for outside emergency services

22
FIRE PREVENTION PROTECTION
  • Types of Fires
  • Fire Extinguisher Use
  • Flammables Storage

23

FIRE PREVENTION PROTECTION
  • Over 5,000 fires occur in the workplace each day.
    Every fire has the potential to cause devastating
    losses to both life and property.
  • You should exercise caution when performing
    activities that may cause or contribute to a
    fire.
  • maintain good housekeeping for paper, cardboard,
    rags, etc.
  • store flammable/combustible liquids in approved
    containers
  • Inspect electrical equipment daily
  • You should know how to respond if a fire does
    occur in an area in which you work. Review the
    sites "Emergency Action Plan" and "Fire
    Prevention Plan for details.

24
FIRE PREVENTION PROTECTION
  • Fire extinguishers are rated for the types of
    fires on which they may be used. The most common
    types of fire extinguishers are
  • Type A - for use on wood, paper, dirty rags, etc.
    proper housekeeping will help prevent these
    types of fires
  • Type B - for use on chemical fires (gas,
    paints) proper storage of flammables is
    important to prevent these types of fires
  • Type C - for use of electrical fires proper
    inspection and installation of equipment is
    necessary for prevention of electrical fires
  • Many fire extinguishers carry multiple ratings so
    they can be used on several types of fires. These
    will be a designation such as 2-A10-BC or
    40-BC.

25
THINGS TO REMEMBER
  • Fire extinguishers should be located throughout
    buildings and work yards and their locations
    identified by signs.
  • Remember the word PASS when using a fire
    extinguisher
  • Pull - the safety pin at the top of the
    extinguisher.
  • Aim - the nozzle or hose at the base of the fire,
    standing about 6' - 8' away.
  • Squeeze - or depress the handle.
  • Sweep - gently from side to side until the fire
    is out.
  • Fire hoses are for fire department use only.
  • If the fire is too large to contain with one fire
    extinguisher, activate the evacuation alarm and
    evacuate the building.
  • Proper storage of flammables will help prevent
    fires.

26
ENVIRONMENTAL
  • Environmental
  • Releases
  • Notification
  • Control and Clean-Up
  • Waste Disposal
  • Hazardous Waste and Storage

27
Releases to the environment (spills, gas
releases, etc.) are considered a serious matter
at all locations.An uncontrolled release always
has the potential to contaminate the ground,
surface water or the atmosphere.Spills of any
chemical must be reported to the customers EHS
department immediately, even if the spill is not
related to the work you are performing.At no
time are chemicals or other materials to be left
exposed to the weather since it could result in
contaminated runoff to storm drains, the ground
or streams.
ENVIRONMENTAL
28
When bulk chemicals are taken on-site, the
contractor is generally responsible to store the
material in designated areas and may be required
to provide suitable secondary containment.Dispos
ition of contractors chemicals and chemical
wastes should be left to the contractor unless
other arraignments are agreed upon before work
starts. No chemicals are to be disposed of on
site. Exceptions require prior written approval
from the local EHS Manager and NCHs Office of
Regulatory Affairs.
ENVIRONMENTAL
29
HEALTH
  • Industrial Hygiene
  • Bloodborne Pathogens

30
INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE
  • Industrial hygiene includes those measures and
    practices taken to protect you from the potential
    hazards of exposure to chemicals, physical
    stresses, biological agents and radiations.
  • Substitution of less harmful materials offers the
    best protection that is why it is usually
    better to use water as a cleaner than a solvent.
  • Engineering controls offer the next best level of
    protection. These include controls such as
    exhaust ventilation and enclosures.
  • Administrative controls such as reduced exposure
    time and frequent breaks can be effective when
    working in hot environments.
  • Personal Protective Equipment (ppe) is the least
    effective means of control, but often is the best
    solution for temporary or sporadic exposures.
  • Personal hygiene (keeping your hands, face, and
    clothes clean and free of contaminants) also
    keeps your exposure low and prevents you from
    spreading the hazards to your car or home.
  • None of these controls will work if you defeat
    them or fail to use them. When controls are
    provided in the work environment, use them.

31
Bloodborne Pathogens
  • Many diseases are transported through contact
    with contaminated blood and bodily fluids. You
    must know about these diseases and take
    precautions to protect yourself.
  • Anyone who may be exposed to blood or other
    bodily fluids must be trained on the proper
    measures to control or prevent exposure.
  • Treat all bodily fluids as if infected,
    regardless of the injured party.

32
HOUSEKEEPING
  • Daily clean-up
  • Store flammables and combustibles properly
  • Put away all items hoses, cables, electrical
    cords, etc.
  • Handling and disposal of waste

33
Good housekeeping is indicative of a proactive
safety attitude and can eliminate the cause of
many accidents. Housekeeping means the neat and
orderly arrangement of tools and materials, as
well as the proper and timely clean-up of trash
and debris. Always clean up as you go.
Everyones concentrated efforts will sustain a
neater, safer job site.
HOUSEKEEPING
34
IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER
  • Store flammables and combustibles in proper
    containers.
  • Protect all hoses, cables and electrical cords.
  • Ask your supervisor and customer contact if you
    have any questions regarding the handling and
    disposal of waste.
  • Housekeeping is everyones responsibility.

    addition to face and eye protection when chemical
    splashes are possible.
  • Be careful when removing PPE that may have been
    contaminated with a chemical and clean them
    before storing.

38
OTHER PPE MAY BE REQUIRED
  • Fall protection, consisting of full body harness
    and shock absorbing lanyards is required when
    working in areas from which one could fall six
    (6) feet or more or fall into a hazardous
    condition. 
  • When grinding or chipping or there is the
    potential for splashed chemicals, a face shield
    is required in addition to eye protection.
  • Electrically-rated gloves and flame retardant
    clothing may be required when working close to
    energized exposed electrical equipment.
  • Working in other areas may required additional
    personal protective equipment such as a long
    sleeve shirt, chemical resistant gloves,
    respirators, whole body suits, etc.

39

SCAFFOLD SAFETY
47
ELECTRICAL WORK
  • Although we all use electricity every day,
    electrical service in the industrial environment
    often presents unexpected hazards that require
    specific precautions to work safely.
  • Even use of common electrical tools can create
    hazards in the workplace if not used properly.
  • Work around electrical service above 600 volts
    requires special precautions even if you are not
    conducting electrical work.

48

    equipped with seatbelts.
  • If seatbelts are provided, you must use them.
  • Fall prevention or protection is required in all
    aerial lifts.
  • Obey all posted speed limit and stop signs.

59
MOBILE EQUIPMENT AISLES Types of Aisles
In many workplaces, aisles are marked for a
specific use. Pay attention to markings on the
floor they may indicate that certain aisles are
intended for a specific use only. Here are some
common examples
  • Narrow Gray Aisle
  • Pedestrian ONLY
  • Wide Gray Aisle
  • Mobile Equipment
  • Wide Red Aisle
