1. It is important to get immediate medical evaluation in the event of an actual, potential, or perceived exposure to chemicals or compounds. Local ERT must be immediately notified for all chemical exposures and/or emergency situations.
2. Safety showers and eyewashes are available wherever chemicals are stored or used. If exposure occurs, most MSDS recommend a flushing of the body part/eye for at least 15 minutes.
3. If exposure involves an “Owner” company chemical or compound, the exposed employee(s) will be taken to the Owner’s Employee Health Services for evaluation. If exposure is from a chemical a contractor brought on to an Owner’s site, the exposed employee(s) should be evaluated by the Contractor Nurse if not an emergency situation.
4. All illnesses/injuries shall be reported immediately. Employees should work with their Supervision in all cases.
5. If it is not an emergency situation, contractors are encouraged to visit an on-site Contractor Nurse. Additionally your company should have a preferred Occupational Health provider that can also be seen for medical evaluation.
