Exposure controls / personal protection

Normal operation
Workers must use PPE as a good practice to minimise possible exposures from minor accidental leaks during loading and unloading the reaction vessel. Procedures are implemented for disposal or cleaning of contaminated PPE.

Accident and incidents a fully trained Emergency Response Team (ERT) must be in place to react in case of accidents and incidents resulting in unexpected releases of the intermediate in order to minimize risks of exposures to humans and the environment.

Maintenance and cleaning
Workers must use additional PPE for cleaning the reaction vessel. A short exposure may occur during a maintenance operation, involving opening of a section of the pipeline connecting the reactor with loading station due to accidental presence of a residue of diluted intermediate that may lead to skin exposure. As a result, workers must be given a specific work instruction on how to open this section, and are required to use high-efficiency PPE for skin and respiratory protection, as a precautionary and protective measure during all maintenance work, where there is a potential for exposure. PPE type must specified in the permit-to-work documents. Procedures must be in place for disposal or cleaning of contaminated PPE, as appropriate.
