Flashcards in Ch 2 Deck (29)
Number assigned by the American chemical Society’s chemical abstract service that uniquely identifies a specific compound
General caution symbols in Mexico are triangular rather than round like those in Canada or______as typically found in the United States
For security reasons, some buildings and areas that store hazardous materials may not be marked. True or false?
NFPA 704 system:
Special hazards are located in the 6 o’clock position and have no specified background color; however, this is most commonly used?
This system uses a rating system of numbers from?
0 to 4
Zero indicates minimal hazard, the number 4 indicates a severe hazard. The rating is assigned to three categories:
Health, flammability, and instability
List all the colors associated with this system
Blue - health
Red - flammability
White - “special “ only unusual reactivity with water and OX oxidizer are authorized here
Who regulates the manufacture and labeling of pesticides?
Phrase assigned to each hazard category that describes the nature of the hazards.
A symbol inside a diamond with a red border, denoting a particular hazard class such as acute toxicity/lethality, and skin irritation/corrosion
One word used to indicate the relative severity of Hazzard and alert the reader to a potential hazard on the label and safety data sheet
The GHS has two:
Warning- less severe
Danger - more severe
EPA encourages, but does not require,_________on pesticide labels
Telephone contact numbers
Lower categories of classification and unclassified products would not require pictograms or signal words under GHS. The current EPA system includes a third signal word which is used in addition to “warning” and “danger”
The EPA requires a warning label on any containers, transformers, or capacitors that contain polychlorinated biphenyls, which is considered hazardous because it may?
This color means danger or stop. It’s used on containers of flammable liquids, emergency stop bars, stop buttons, and fire protection equipment
This color means warning. It’s used on energized equipment or hazardous machinery with parts that can crush or cut
This color means caution. Solid yellow, yellow and black stripes, or yellow and black checkers maybe used to indicate physical hazards such as tripping hazards. Also used on containers of corrosive or unstable materials
This color marks safety equipment such as first aid stations, safety showers, and exit routes
This color marks safety information signage such as labels or markings indicating the type of required PPE
Colors can sometimes provide clues to the nature of hazardous materials in North America. For example, the material inside is some kind of____if the placard background color is yellow
The general location and type of paperwork change according to the?
Mode of transport
The basic description provided in shipping papers will follow a sequence best remembered by the acronym, ISHP:
I- Id number
S- Proper shopping name
H- hazard class or division
P- packing group
The information provided, such as_____and_____, can then be used to identify hazards such as potential fire, explosion, and health hazards
Proper Shipping name and the hazard class
This is a detailed information bulletin prepared by chemicals manufacturer or importer that provide specific information about the product
Safety data sheet
This is definitely the safest of the five senses to use to detect a hazardous material
This can also be used to detect information from a distance.
Gradual inability of a person to detect odors after initial exposure. Can be extremely rapid with some toxins such as hydrogen sulfide
Warning properties of chemicals include:
Visible gas clouds. Pungent odor’s. And irritating fumes
