If your company uses toxic gases are for refrigeration (i.e. ammonia) or for the treatment of materials like disinfection (i.e. ozone), then an exposure control program is required to minimize worker exposure. Business operations which involved complex process and handle hazardous materials, it's critical to develop a process safety plan as part of your health and safety management system.
This program should contain:
- Hazard identification andrisk assessment
- Adequate safe work procedures for storage and emergency response
- Training and supervision of all workers and contractors at-risk
- Installation, inspection and maintenance of gas-specific detection equipment
