IDENTIFIED MATERIALS THAT COULD CAUSE AN INCIDENT
The materials covered in this document are listed below in liquids and solid form:
Dry Form Materials-
a. Fly ash
b. Run of station ash
c. Bottom ash
d. Test material such as EAF Dust or PGP
e. Dry Binders NR 3 & NR 4
Protocol for dealing with dry material that are spilled are as follows:
Fly Ash and run of station ash if split while loading of hoppers from drum is the to have the material swept up using a broom and dust pan and feeding the material split into the hopper for this material. Their is no issue with any spoil being picked up with the split ash and it will not affect the use of the ASH.
The Bottom Ash being transported from the Bunker to the hopper by bucket if there is a spillage the Bottom Ash is to be swept up and put back onto the bucket carrying the material.
The Bottom ash can still be used if any spoil is picked up with the Bottom Ash and it has no effect on the ash and its use in the process.
Equipment required pick up material spilled is a broom, square shovel, dust pan and 20 Lt Bucket. It would be possible to use an industrial vacuum if the area is larger than 3 meters square.
It is recommended that protective eye wear and face mask are worn during this procedure and steel capped boots, with long sleeve shirt and long pants.
Liquid Form Materials-
a. NR 1 & NR 2 Binders
b. Hydraulic Oil
These materials if spilt the best and fastest procedure to deal with them if they fall outside of the bundled areas they are contained in during delivery would be to throw Bottom Ash on them and to consolidate the spill so that they stop flowing away.
Leave the Bottom Ash on the liquid that is spilt and then allow 1 hour to dry and then pick up the consolidated materials with a square shovel and a bucket. This material can be put with materials that are rejected products and crushed again and feed into the hopper to reprocess back through the plant. Even if the spillage picks up any form of spoil this is not detrimental to the process of manufacture, and this can
include all material picked up around the plant building that is picked up by sweeping
or hovering can be disposed by throwing them in the Hopper for the Bottom Ash.
