Chemical Hazards The world is witnessing a rapid and rapid increase in the production and production of chemicals, in addition to the manufacture of new types of chemical compounds on an annual basis. This is due to the huge expansion of the global industry, especially the chemical industries, Plastic, fertilizer and pesticides. Chemicals used in or from these industries can cause environmental and health disasters for those who deal with them and are exposed to the risks they cause in the name of chemical hazards, which can appear in the form of environmental pollution or in the form of health and carcinogenic diseases. Awareness-raising and prevention of their risks. Chemical safety precautions Application of safety rules during storage When building storage facilities, the building must be built of materials suitable for the purpose for which it is built, provided with good ventilation systems, as well as preventive measures in case of danger such as fire or explosion. Do not store chemicals with reactable materials. Avoid keeping high-risk chemical containers out of place. Keep the vessels clean, and destroy the contaminated ones in safe and licensed ways. The containers intended for keeping the chemicals from non-breakable materials shall be manufactured or reacted, and the closure shall be regulated to prevent the diversion of chemicals from them, in addition to the numbering of each container to facilitate identification of the type of material in it. Application of safety rules during trading Identify the specific guidelines in the labeling of chemicals traded. Wear work clothes, provided that the conditions of protection and protection are met. Ensuring the integrity of vessels and the safety of their circulation methods. Apply appropriate methods when transporting chemicals from one container to another, to prevent leakage and spillage. Inform the traders of the risks of each material they trade and convey, and inform them of the rules of first aid to be followed in case of leakage of any of these materials. Application of chemicals risk control rules Replacements: replacing high-risk chemicals with safer or less hazardous ones. Insulation: This is by isolating the high-risk manufacturing process in special rooms, in addition to isolating the vulnerable workers and putting them in work away from chemical contaminants. Wet roads: These methods help to eliminate chemical dust and other health-damaging fibers, the most commonly used spray spray. Ventilation: By pulling pollutants from the air, providing continuous sources of clean and clean air Personal protective tools: such as leather gloves and sterile masks, these tools are usually used during emergencies.
