The first chemical hazard to be discussed is flam- mability. Although one chemical may indeed be more flammable, say, than another,3the precau- tions and emergency treatment depend princi- pally upon flammability itself, not the degree of flammability.

A flammable chemical (obviously) will burn. (Safe Work Australia, a). Thus chemical hazards remain a major occupational health and safety (OHS) issue in Australian workplaces.

While chemical hazards are often associated with Major Hazard Facilities1 and chemical transport, they are ubiquitous in workplaces and so.

Although they are individual accidents, different in the way in which they happened and the chemicals that were involved, they have one common feature: they were uncontrolled, involving fires, explosions or the release of toxic substances that either resulted in the death.

Exposure to chemicals in the workplace can cause acute or long-term detrimental health effects. There are many types of hazardous chemicals, including neurotoxins, immune agents, dermatologic agents, carcinogens, reproductive toxins, systemic toxins, asthmagens, pneumoconiotic agents, and.Process safety management is widely credited for reductions in major accident risk and improved process industry performance.
