Overview

Safe Storage of Laboratory Chemicals, Second Edition is a comprehensive guide which allows readers to assess and improve the safety of their laboratory operations when storing chemicals. By applying the information in this book, readers can create a safer place to work—through a safer storage environment, wiser storage practices and procedures, informed personnel, and the intelligent use of information. The late 1980s has seen a surge in the demand for chemical safety and information relating to a safe workplace. Changes in legislation, standards, technology, and the increasing sophistication of workers has prompted the new edition of this book, about 40% of which has been expanded. Added to this new edition are chapters which provide: a framework and model for chemical storage; an in-depth look at the requirements of OSHA and EPA legislation regarding chemical storage; and a consideration of the needs and issues of the industry, especially "e;people"e; factors. Revised chapters have been updated and expanded to reflect: the latest requirements in codes and standards for storage requirements of flammables; HazComm, industry trends, and the latest data on labeling practices; new OSHA requirements and spill response technology for emergency responses; the latest microcomputer and software advances and applications for chemical health and safety; and recent experiences in ridding schools of hazardous chemicals. This book offers a balanced approach to the safe storage of laboratory chemicals. Applied knowledge for identifying chemical storage hazards, solutions and alternative measures for storing specific hazard classes of chemicals, and innovative case histories provide a wealth of information from which readers may draw to enhance the safety of their storage situations. After introducing readers to the fundamental principles of chemical storage (chapters 1–7), chapters 8–12 present helpful case histories which assist in functional matters, such as surveys and inspections, MIS for large warehouse storage facilities, recommendations for industrial labs, a showcase university’s chemical storage facilities, and the results of eliminating unwanted, dangerous chemicals from schools. The appendices present practical information on chemical safety. This is an essential guide for those responsible for laboratory safety and laboratory chemicals.
