Clarity at your fingertips
27 April 2009
Denios has produced an essential guide which clarifies all of the information and UK regulations for using, handling and properly containing all such items.
Clairty at your fingertips
The 35 page guide embraces absolutely every aspect of this often confusing and misunderstood subject, utilising clear and colour coded charts and will ensure that you always match the substance to the container and stay within the law – and not endure the particularly heavy fines and even custodial sentences which are becoming increasingly common.
Commencing with operational safety regulations, the guide moves through the industry symbols; risk and safety phrases; pollution prevention guidelines; secondary containment systems; storing hazardous materials on sumps; then to a thorough media resistance list; followed by a graphic segregation table for storing packaged dangerous substances; the guide then covers the Denios fire protection traingle embracing DIBt / PPG 26 compliance – internal and external F90 fire protection – Denios 90 minute fire protection system with DIBt approval; there follows a very helpful section on important safety information;
the subject of pressured gas cylinders is well covered notably as regards EN 14 470-2; the theme of emergency showers is well documented to link with the new British Standard; all considerations of breathing apparatus are noted, as is extraction of hazardous materials; a clever classification concept for ventilation is shown as a pyramid; and we then reach the physical aspects of hand, footwear, hearing and noise protection; even fuelling platforms are covered; and then the vital subject of transportation of hazardous substances; followed by a succinct explanation of the ATEX Directive as with potentially explosive atmospheres; explosion protection regulations are noted – as are the regulations for transporting and handling containers.
