Safe Work Practices: OSHA Compliance with Flammable and Combustible liquids

Duration: 75 Minutes
Flammable materials are substances that can ignite easily and burn rapidly. They can be common materials that are at the most work sites in gas, liquids or solids. In addition, flammable materials may themselves represent a health hazard. This webinar will cover only the flammable and combustible liquids handling and storage. This webinar will cover OSHA and NFPA standards that govern the handling and storage of these liquids. Currently flammable and combustible liquids are used in the pharmaceutical, chemical and other industries in different part of the process.
OSHA Compliance with Flammable and Combustible liquids
Instructor: Edgar Fernandez
Product ID: 505171
Objectives of the Presentation
  • Design of a safety program for flammable and combustible liquids
  • Understand the different precaution for handling and storage of flammable liquids
  • Understand the hazards that the flammable and combustible liquids pose to workers
  • Understand the requirements of the NFPA 30 'Flammable and combustible liquids'
  • Review safety practices from the Chemical Center of Process Safety under the American Institute of Chemical Engineers
  • Communication
Why Should you Attend
This webinar will provide the basics that shall be considered in handling and storage of flammable liquids. In the recent incidents around the world, some agencies such as the Chemical Safety Board and others have found gaps in knowledge and lack of safety practices regarding flammable liquids. The Chemical Center of Process Safety (CCPS) provides a lot of literature about incidents of this kind occurred in many places; therefore it is critical to analyze the different aspects involved in handling and storage of these substances.

Topic Background
Flammable and combustible liquids are liquids that can burn. They are classified or grouped as either flammable or combustible by their flashpoints. Generally speaking, flammable liquids will ignite (catch on fire) and burn easily at normal working temperatures. Combustible liquids have the ability to burn at temperatures that are usually above working temperatures.

There are several specific technical criteria and test methods for identifying flammable and combustible liquids. Under OSHA 1910.106, flammable liquids have a flashpoint below 37.8°C (100°F). Combustible liquids have a flashpoint at or above 37.8°C (100°F) and below 93.3°C(200°F).

Flammable and combustible liquids are present in almost every workplace. Fuels and many common products like solvents, thinners, cleaners, adhesives, paints, waxes and polishes may be flammable or combustible liquids. Everyone who works with these liquids must be aware of their hazards and how to work safely with them.
