Monitoring Smoking Hazards. "No Smoking" signs should be posted near fuel points and within the operational area of a
ROWPU. Smoking is allowed only in designated areas away from equipment, fuels, and chemicals. There should be no open
flames within 50 feet of the unit.
Supervising Chemical Safety. You need to make personnel aware that dangerous chemicals are used in operating the
ROWPU. Stress that death, health hazards, or injuries such as severe burns, impaired vision, and internal tissue destruction
may be experienced if personnel fail to observe precautions in handling chemicals. It is better to repeat this often than for
someone to inattentively cause harm. Ensure that material-safety data sheets for all chemicals are available for review.
It is a very important safety measure that you, as a supervisor, not only tell, but also see that personnel follow these
precautions when handling chemicals:
Do not store chemicals under direct
Ensure vent fan is in operation if doors
Keep hands away from facial areas.
Mix chemicals only when directed.
Wear safety equipment such as
Ensure back is to the wind when
aprons, gloves, and goggles.
Clean up spills immediately.
