Description : Make your environmental lab--and lab technicians' work practices--the safest possible. * Protect workers from hazardous material they handle on-site * Protect the civilian population from harm in a hazardous materials emergency * Prevent accidents before they happen The purpose of Safe Work Practices for the Environmental Laboratory is twofold: 1. For the person designated as the laboratory's Chemical Hygiene Officer or Safety Officer, this text is a user friendly reference that will provide a format, a template, a guide to compliance with OSHA's Laboratory Standard (29 CFR 1910.145); and 2. for the person who is assigned to work in the environmental laboratory, this user-friendly text provides the information needed not only to perform routine laboratory tasks correctly, but also to perform them safely. The environmental lab is involved with performing analytical testing and sampling protocols relating to air, soil, biosolids, sludges, drinking water, wastewater, groundwater, stormwater, waste characterization, petroleum products, and HRSD/NPDES effluent studies. Many wastewater treatment plants and water works have their own environmental laboratories. These labs primarily perform analysis of process conditions to ensure optimization of the process. However, even these small labs (a few are quite large) perform "environmental sampling" and therefore are environmental labs. The actual genesis of the environmental laboratory can be attributed to the environmental regulations that have been generated by USEPA, AOAC, ASTM, NIOSH, OSHA, and other regulatory and advisory entities. The typical environmental laboratory contains several different types of hazards the lab worker must guard against. This is the case even though modern environmental laboratories have been designed to take maximum advantage of engineering controls that work to "engineer-out" most hazards. The main hazard discussed in this text has to do with hazardous materials--dangerous chemicals and compounds--and the effect they can have on work practices. OSHA is quite specific in regard to protecting the laboratory worker from harm that could result from handling hazardous materials--these specifics are discussed in detail throughout this text. It is important to point out that this text will provide the user with more than just a "safety book." For example, this text provides the user with a sample Chemical Hygiene Plan, it discusses various safe work practices for standard operating procedures normally performed in the environmental laboratory, and it discusses procedures to use for emergency response activities, such as clean-up of chemical spills. The bottom line is that probably the most important benefit to be derived from using this text is the exposure the user receives to the lessons and examples presented throughout the text; these lessons learned and examples provide information on how to make your environmental laboratory and the performance of your individual work practices safer. When you get right down to it, isn't this what a safety text should be all about?

Description : Water is a limited resource. The average person might ask how this can be? We are literally shrouded in water-water covers most of the earth-water, water, water, everywhere you look there is water. Obviously, this person does not live in or is not familiar with arid and semi-arid parts of the globe. Maybe our viewer is referring to the hydrologic cycle-that natural process of rainfall-runoff-evaporation, which repeats itself continuously (we can only hope that it continues to do so). Our viewer is not alone in his/her assessment of water-the state of water-the fact is most people do not give water a second thought. A belief prevails that the earth's finite water resources can be increased constantly to meet growing demands. At the present time, the supply of water is constantly made to respond to demand. Modern technology has allowed us to tap potable water supplies and to design and construct elaborate water distribution systems. We have developed technology to treat water we foul, soil, pollute, discard, and flush away. History has demonstrated that consumption and waste increase in response to rising supply. But the fact remains: fresh waters are a finite source-one that can be increased only slightly through desalinization or some other practice-all at tremendous cost. If water is so precious, so necessary for sustaining life, then two questions arise: 1. Why do we ignore water? 2. Why do we abuse it (pollute or waste it)? We ignore water because it is so common, so accessible, so available, so unexceptional (unless you are lost in the desert without a supply of it) that we don't have to think about it. Why do we pollute and waste water? Several reasons are discussed in this text. This text deals with the essence of water: what water is, and what water is all about. While this text points out that water is one of the simplest and most common chemical compounds on earth, it is also one of the most mysterious and awe-inspiring substances we know. Essential to this discussion of water and its critical importance on earth is man-man and his use, misuse, and reuse of fresh water and wastewater. Since water is the essence of all life on earth, it is precious-too precious to abuse, misuse and ignore. The common thread woven through the fabric of this presentation is water resource utilization and its protection.

Description : Establishing, maintaining and refining a comprehensive Process Safety Management (PSM) and Risk Management Program (RMP) is a daunting task. The regulations are complicated and difficult to understand. The resources available to manage your program are limited. Your plant could be the target of a grueling PSM and RMP compliance audit by OSHA and/or the EPA, which could scrutinize your facility according to their stringent audit guidelines. Ask yourself some questions. . . * Is your municipal plant or industrial facility ready to meet new OSHA and EPA PSM/RMP regulations? * Do you understand OSHA's and EPA's requirements? * Do you know how OSHA/EPA are interpreting PSM/RMP requirements? * Are you prepared for a possible audit? * Is your existing PSM/RMP comprehensive, maintainable and cost-effective? If you answered "no" to any of these, you need the expert guidance provided by A Guide to Compliance for Process Safety Management/Risk Management Planning (PSM/RMP) In recent years, chemical accidents that involved the release of toxic substances have claimed the lives of hundreds of employees and thousands of others worldwide. In order to prevent repeat occurrences of catastrophic chemical incidents, OSHA and the USEPA have joined forces to bring about the OSHA Process Safety Management Standard (PSM) and the USEPA Risk Management Program (RMP). Chemical disaster situations can occur due to human error in system operation and/or a malfunction in system equipment. Other emergency situations that must also be considered and planned for include fire, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, tornadoes, snow/ice storms, avalanches, explosions, truck accidents, train derailments, airplane crashes, building collapses, riots, bomb threats, terrorism, and sabotage. Be prepared! * Determine the differences and similarities between OSHA's PSM and EPA's RMP regulations * Survey your facility to determine your needs * Plug your site-specific data into regulation templates * Prepare your data records for your PSM compliance package * Calculate your "Worst Case" scenarios * Assemble a viable PSM program in a logical, sequential, and correct manner * Supervise program implementation elements with the overall management system This user friendly, plain English, straightforward guide to new EPA and OSHA regulations describes, explains and demonstrates a tested, proven, workable methodology for installation of complete, correct safety and risk programs. It provides the public administrator, plant manager, plant engineer, and organization safety professionals with the tool needed to ensure full compliance with the requirements of both regulations. Those with interests in HazMat response and mitigation procedures will also find it of use. This guidebook is designed to be applicable to the needs of most operations involved in the production, use, transfer, storage, and processing of hazardous materials. It addresses Process Safety Management and Risk Management Planning for facilities handling hazardous materials, and describes the activities and approach to use within U.S. plants and companies of all sizes. From the Author This guidebook is designed to enable the water, wastewater, and general industry person who has been assigned the task of complying with these new rules to accomplish this compliance effort in the easiest most accurate manner possible. A Guide to Compliance for Process Safety Management/Risk Management Planning (PSM/RMP) is user-friendly. This How-To-Do-It guide will assist those who are called upon to design, develop, and install PSM and RMP systems within their companies or plants. It describes, explains, and demonstrates a proven methodology: an example that actually works and has been tested. More than anything else, this guidebook really is a "Template." It provides a pattern that can be used to devise a compliance package that is accurate. Simply stated: like the standard template, this guidebook can provide the foundation, the border, the framework from which any covered organization's PSM and RMP effort can be brought into proper compliance. The user simply "plugs in" site specific information into the model presented in this guidebook. This guidebook first shows that PSM and RMP are similar and are interrelated in many ways and different in only a few ways. Many of the processes listed in PSM are also listed in RMP; the additional RMP processes are in industry sectors that have a significant accident history Along with showing the similarities and interrelationships between PSM and RMP, the requirements of RMP that are in addition to those listed in PSM are discussed. This guidebook also discusses the RMP requirement for off-site consequence analysis and the methodology that can be utilized in performing it. If the PSM project team follows this format, it will be able to assemble a viable PSM program in a logical, sequential, and correct manner.

Description : FROM THE INTRODUCTION The purpose of this text is to address one small but important and significant aspect (or process) of making man-made waste disposal more earth-friendly: biosolids composting. Since 1970, much progress has been made in sewage treatment technology. Corrective actions in treating domestic and industrial wastes have advanced to the point and have been underway for a long enough period now so that today one can visit most local lakes and streams and clearly see the lake or river bottom near a shallow shoreline. This, of course, is an example of an environmental improvement that can be readily seen. This visible improvement is also a "predictor" of what the future can hold for present and future generations who respect lakes and streams, and thus the environment. Recent improvements in the water quality of streams and lakes are only a small part of the progress that has been made. Improvements in wastewater technology have also worked to improve the quality of water we use; that is, the water we drink. This last statement may seem strange to some readers. How does wastewater treatment improve the quality of potable water when we do not receive our drinking water from wastewater treatment plant effluent? Effluent from wastewater treatment plants in not normally cross-connected with their municipality's drinking water supply. Many communities draw water from streams and rivers for use in domestic potable water supplies and these same streams and rivers serve as outfalls, normally upstream, for wastewater treatment plant effluent. Communities are growing. Populations within these burgeoning communities are also growing. Along with growth in community size and in population is a corresponding growth in the need for more potable water. Thus, the stream or river that provides the water supply and serves as the outfall for wastewater treatment plant effluent is put under increasing demand for its main product: potable water. Wastewater Biosolids to Compost covers EPA 503 regulations, testing procedures, advancements in odor control, marketing the product, and composting program economics.
