It also found that 90% of the serious accidents involved reactive hazards well documented in publicly available literature; however, the Board noted a gap in technical guidance and regulatory coverage.

One successful method of reducing hazards is to carry out chemical reactions and other laboratory procedures on a smaller scale (i.e., microscale) when feasible. In microscale chemistry the amounts of materials used are reduced to 25 to mg for solids and to μL for liquids, compared with the usual 10 to 50 g for solids or to Recently, the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS) published a book devoted to management practices for dealing with chemical reactivity r 3 in their book provides a screening tool designed to help determine if a chemical reactivity hazard exists at a by: 1.

In addressing the knowledge required to understand chemical hazards and control measures, the chapterFile Size: KB. These reactions may result in death and injury to people, damage to physical property, and severe effects on the environment.

Process Safety Management is used to prevent and mitigate chemical reactivity hazards. A key element of planning an experiment is assessing the hazards and potential risks associated with the chemicals and laboratory operations to be used.

This chapter provides a practical guide for the trained laboratory personnel engaged in these activities. Section 4.B introduces the sources of information for data on toxic, flammable, reactive, and explosive chemical substances.

The key to evaluating chemical reactivity hazards is to first determine what chemicals exist in the workplace, and then determine which chemicals are reactive with other materials. The following references aid in evaluating reactive interactions and their potential hazards. Chemical Reactivity Worksheet.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric. Problem: Chemical reactivity hazards are more difficult to anticipateand recognize than other types of process hazards.
