Transcript: Most graphic communications facilities use flammable and combustible materials To reduce the rick of fire practice these precautions: Pick up dust using a vacuum cleaner Report leaking solvent containers Wipe up solvent & oil spills Use a spouted safety can when transferring small amounts of solvent Purpose of Plant Safety Summary Most of the guidelines discussed are mandated by OSHA for the protection of the independent worker The Clean Air Act Amendments, another federal initiative, requires the Environmental Protection Agency to periodically review and revise national air quality Clean Air Act Amendments continue to significantly impact lithographic printers Safety and Environmental Health Loud noise is often found in industrial facilities Excessive noise can lead to permanent hearing loss Hearing protection include earmuffs, earplugs, moldable inserts, and noise-reducing headsets Chemical Hazards Fire Prevention Noise Environmental Compliance Chemicals are used in the printing industry and you may come in contact with some substances You should know how to handle and dispose of them properly Some substances are solvents, platemaking chemicals, and ink mists In conclusion, the purpose of a plant safety is to recognize and control potential hazards. Machines and chemicals need to be properly handled and dealt with. You need to take precautions to reduce disasters from happening and always wear protective clothing. In the end, it is all about being safe. Mechanical Hazards To recognize,evaluate, and control potential hazards in a workplace Using machinery wrongly or not safely is a potential health hazard To work at a an enjoyable place, safety rules must be followed Many on-the-job physical injuries are the result of mechanical hazards that can be controlled if Machines are properly guarded Workers properly use personal protective equipment Workers use equipment safely Energy isolating devices are locked and tagged out during maintenance
Transcript: Noise levels are measured in units called decibels ( dBA ) Excessive noise can lead to permanent hearing loss The BEST way to protect against hearing damage and loss is controlling the noise or wearing ear protection if the noise cannot be controlled Injury, illness, and death is always possible while working at a plant Its always important to work safely for the benefit of you and your co-workers. Be sure to know procedures of anything you need to handle in the plant By Kiana Spencer OSHA mandates most of the protection for individual workers. Be sure to dispose of waste CORRECTLY and PROPERLY to prevent the damage to the environment or other workers. Summary VOCS ( volatile organic compounds ) are toxic substances that help the washes work well and evaporate quickly. Because they evaporate quick, VOCS can pass into worker's lungs and outside air. Do NOT use: benzene, carbon tetrachloride, gasoline, chloroform, and carbon disulfide. Wear personal protective devices ( safety glasses, gloves, respirators, etc ). There are four type of chemicals and agents 8-1 Hopefully these slides helped you learn about environmental health and safety. For more, look into the Graphic Communications textbook. The Purpose of Plant Safety Most of the safety and health guidelines are mandated by OSHA ( Occupational Safety and Health Administration ) Other groups that mandate health and safety guidelines are CAAA ( Clean Air Act Amendments ) or EPA ( Environmental Protection Agency ) Typical wastes from the commercial printing industry include paper, photochemical solutions and films, inks and ink-contaminated solvents, equipment cleaning wastes, and lubricating fluids from machinery Be sure you are trained and know how to handle materials, tools, and equipment Many on-the-job physical injuries are resulted from mechanical hazards workers should use proper personal protective devices Environmental Health and Safety Note: Chemicals MUST be discarded in an environmentally safe manner, never down the drain or sewer. Environmental Compliance Mechanical Hazards Noise Ink- and solvent-soaked rags MUST be placed in an approved and covered metal waste can Solvent Vapors, paper dust, and antisetoff powders are sources of explosion dangers. Do NOT dump solvents into drains; store and dispose them in compliance with state and local enviornmental protection standards Chemical Hazards workers should always wear personal protective devices such as gloves or goggles to protect themselves while working Fire Protection 1. Organic solvents 2. Platemaking chemicals 3. Ink Mists 4. Gases, fumes, and dust Prezi Presentation
Transcript: Environmental Compliance By: Travis McHann Machine Guards and personal protection The Safety and Health program is to inform you about potential hazards and problems in the workplace In this lesson I learned about Personal protection, Chemical hazards, fire prevention, Noise in the work place, Machine guards and the Environmental Compliance. Machine guards protect parts of the human body from being electrocuted, cut, squashed or hit by flying fragments. machine guard also protect the equipment from foreign objects. Never wear watches, rings, ties, bracelets, scarves, or loose clothing while working with machinery. Loose hair is also a hazard, as well as a rag patially tucked into a pocket hanging out. Chemical Hazards The OSHA discussed most of the safety and health guidelines. Another federal initiative The Clean Air Act Amendments (CAAA) requires the EPA to check the national air quality standards. The Clean Water Act governs water pollution control, regulating discharges of pollutants to U.S waters. Excessive noise can lead to permanent hearing loss To protect your ears if you cannot control the noise level wear ear protection Noise levels are measured in units called decibles If the noise level exceeds the permissible level, unwanted sound must be engineered out or you have to wear ear protection Summary Fire Prevention The purpose of the safety and health program is to recognize, evaluate, and control potential hazards in the workplace. Noise Make sure you know the types of chemicals you are using and the hazards involved Safety and Environmental Health Safety And Environmental Health Chemicals can enter the body through the skin, by inhalation, or by ingestion. make sure to wear personal protective devices when handling chemicals When disposing of chemicals, do not pour them down a drain or sewer Paper dust or antisetoff powders may explode if concentrated where a spark could ignite the mixture Ink and solvent-soaked rags must be placed in an approved and covered metal waste can. pick up dust with a vacuum cleaner Don't blow dust with a air hose Report leaking solvent containers Wipe up solvents and oil spills

Transcript: Proliferation of nanotechnology has also prompted concerns over the safety of nanoparticles with respect to human health and the environment Concerns have been expressed in the 2004 review carried out by the Royal Society and Royal Academy of Engineering (RS/RAEng) Currently concerns are mainly focused on occupational health and worker safety Engineered nanoparticles in consumer products Assess where exposure to the engineered nano-particles may occur Measure the size of the engineered nano-particles released into the environment via: Characterisation using techniques such as UV/Vis/NIR, Raman, IR, AFM, TGA Assess the toxicity of engineered nano-particles firstly on lung tissue and identify a minimum concentration where adverse effects on lung tissue are observed on exposure to the particles. This is achieved by toxicological studies: Clongenic Assay, Alamar Blue, Neutral Red MTT, ROS Public Sector Medicines Agency Food Safety Authority Chemicals Agency such as ECHA and REACH European Agency for Safety and Health at Work Private Sector Cosmetics Pharmaceutical Chemicals Food safety Medical devices This may result in the release of a new form of nano-material composite that could result in an occupational and environmental hazard. Due to the lack of biological information on ENP this study will provide invaluable information on the potential risks associated with the use of ENP The results of this research may be used to contribute to a risk assessment for those exposed to such a material. Ireland as a Global leader Nanotechnology Environmental Health There are no worldwide accepted rules or regulations for nanotechnology Currently, no regulations exist that specifically control or limit the production of nanoparticles There is a lack of knowledge about the materials and the risks they pose Despite the lack of regulation and risk knowledge, products that contain nanoparticles are already being sold in the food, cosmetic, medical and materials sectors Nanotechnology Environmental Health Results Four broad, high-priority research categories Identify and quantify nanoparticles being released and the populations and environments being exposed Understand processes that affect both potential hazards and exposure Examine nanoparticles interactions in complex systems ranging from subcellular to ecosystems Support adaptive research and knowledge infrastructure for accelerating research progress and providing rapid feedback to advance research Nanotechnology Environmental Health Phase 2 Phase 1 How much is nanotechnology worth? Quantity of nanoparticles at global level estimated at 11 million tonnes with market value of €20 bn (European Commission 2012) Direct nanotechnology employment in EU is ~ 400,000 and increasing Products underpinned by nanotechnology brought in €200 bn in 2009 and forecast to bring in €2 tr in 2015 Nanotechnology Core Drive What does this mean from a toxicity point of view? There must be exposure to the nanoparticles Health risk – inhalation, ingestion and skin contact Environmental risk – air, soil, water and ecosystem contamination
