EMERGENCY PLANNING AND COMMUNITY RIGHT TO KNOW
SCOPE: This policy includes all hazardous materials that are stored and/or used on site and for which there is an MSDS
required by OSHA 1910:1200 Hazard Communication.
PURPOSE: The purpose of this policy is to establish reporting requirements to provide the public with information on the
hazardous chemicals used and or stored at the College. It also is intended to facilitate the development of state and local
emergency response plans.
♦ The local emergency planning committee has been notified that the Manager of Human Resources & Safety will serve as the Facility Emergency Coordinator. ♦ The College will provide the Local Emergency Planning Committee and the State Emergency Response Commission with all information needed for emergency planning. ♦ The College will collect and maintain copies of all MSDS(s) required under OSHA 1910:1200 Hazard Communication. The College also subscribes to an MSDS On Demand service so that MSDS(s) will be available at all times. ♦ The College has provided the State Emergency Response Commission, the Local Emergency Planning Committee and the local Fire Department with a complete list of hazardous chemicals used/stored at the College in preference to complete sets of MSDS(s). The College will notify the above agencies of significant changes in the inventory levels of extremely hazardous substances (EHS). ♦ As a matter of practice the College will maintain inventory levels of EHS(s) campus-wide below the Threshold Planning Quantities (TPQ) or 500 lbs, whichever is less, whenever possible. The exception to this will be Sulfuric Acid because of its presence in batteries. Additionally, the College will not inventory any substances included in OSHA 1910:1200 in excess of 10,000 lbs (including salt). ♦ If the College exceeds the above limits, a Tier II form will be completed and submitted to PA Department of Labor & Industry, Bureau of PENNSAFE (state emergency resource commission). Copies of the Tier II will be forwarded to the local emergency planning committee and the local fire department. ♦ The College will maintain a record of all hazardous chemicals stored and used campus-wide throughout the calendar year. The Chemical Hygiene Officer will review the labels and MSDS for each hazardous chemical and any hazardous chemical that is a component part in an amount that exceeds 1% shall also be included in the hazardous chemical inventory. At the conclusion of each calendar year, the CHO will compile the totals for each hazardous chemical stored and used and compare them against the reporting thresholds for Tier II reporting. ♦ A copy of the EHS list will be placed on the safety website and college employees will be asked to check the list EMERGENCY RELEASE NOTIFICATION:
♦ All releases involving substances included on the CERCLA hazardous substance and EHS lists in quantities exceeding the reporting quantity (RQ) will be reported to the local emergency planning committee at 800-808-5236, to PEMA at 717-651-2001, and the National Response Center at 800-424-8802. ♦ Notices will include the chemical name of the material released, whether it is on the EHS list, the quantity released, time and duration of the release, what media the material was released into, any anticipated health risks, resources for medical assistance, proper precautions to take as a result of the release and names and phone numbers of persons to be contacted for further information. ♦ The College will, as soon as information becomes available, provide a written follow up emergency notice that will include the action taken to respond to and control the release, anticipated health risks associated with the release and the location of medical advice regarding medical attention necessary for exposed individuals.
