LEGISLATION
Ontario Occupational Health & Safety Act
In Ontario, health and safety requirements are legislated under the Ontario Occupational Health & Safety Act (OHSA).
The Act outlines the roles and responsibilities of various workplace parties. You can find a copy of The Act located on
the Health & Safety board at 100 McCaul’s main floor.
OCAD University, as an employer, is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Act and regulations, and for taking
every precaution reasonable for the protection of faculty, staff (Section 25(2) h of the OHSA) and students.
As a Student Monitor, you are now considered a worker at OCAD University and you will have specific rights, roles and
responsibilities that you will need to understand which we will discuss further in this section.
Internal Responsibility System
The Occupational Health and Safety Act outlines the different roles of the employer, supervisor and worker, and how
these parties work together to contribute to making their workplace safe. This is the Internal Responsibility System, or
IRS.
Communication is a big part of the IRS in any workplace, and the ability to communicate effectively is an important skill.
To communicate effectively, you need to be good at both listening and speaking.
If a worker sees a hazard or practice that goes against the OHSA or workplace health and safety policies or procedures,
that worker has a duty to tell their supervisor or employer. This should be done as soon as possible so that the hazard
can be addressed. That’s how employers, supervisors and workers come together to make the workplace safer. This is
an example of the Internal Responsibility System in action.
You should inform the employer of any health and safety concern, even if you have the ability and authority to handle it
yourself. Your employer may need to know about the problem in order to fulfill his or her duties.
WORKER RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES
1. WORKER RIGHTS:
The OHSA gives workers three important rights:
a) The right to know about workplace hazards and what to
do about them
b) The right to participate in solving workplace health and
safety problems
c) The right to refuse work that they believe is unsafe
7|P a ge
1.1.
The Right to Know
It’s the employer’s responsibility to inform the workers about any health or safety hazards and to show them how to
work safely. This supports workers’ right to know about hazards to which they might be exposed. For example, the law
says workers have to receive information and training on the chemicals or hazardous materials that are used, handled or
stored at work. This information is available either on warning labels or information sheets. Sometimes you may also
have to give the worker written instructions on how to do the work. The employer supports the workers’ right to know
by making sure they get:
•
•
•
1.2.
Information about the hazards in the work they are doing
Training to do the work in a healthy and safe way.
Competent supervision to stay healthy and safe. That means the employer has made sure that you know how to do
your job.
The Right to Participate
Supervisors support the workers’ right to participate in health and safety by encouraging them to get involved. There
are various ways to be involved in workplace health and safety such as asking questions, raising concerns and giving
positive feedback. One of the most effective ways workers can participate in health and safety is by becoming or
communicating with a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC) member.
What is a Joint Health and Safety Committee (JHSC)?
In Ontario, organizations that employ more than 20 employees must have a formal Joint Health and Safety Committee.
The JHSC consists of worker (union employee) and management members.
Worker representatives are selected by the union and management members are appointed by the employer.
What do OCAD University JHSC Members do?
• Act as an advisory body to OCADU in areas of health and safety
• Identify hazards and obtain information about them
• Assist in resolving work refusal cases
• Participate in accident investigations and workplace inspections that involved OCADU employees
• Recommend corrective actions required to resolve health and safety concerns
• Meet every month to discuss safety issues at OCADU
• Inspect the workplace (or at least some areas of the workplace) each month
Who are the JHSC Members?
Management Representatives:
Nick Hooper (Studio Management) – Co-Chair

Where Can I find the JHSC’s Monthly Meeting Minutes and Inspection Sheets?
Your JHSC’s monthly meeting minutes and inspection reports are posted on the Safety & Risk Management Bulletin
Board located at the main floor at 100 McCaul.
1.3.
The Right to Refuse.
The third right of workers in the OHSA is the right to refuse to do work that you have reason to believe is unsafe for
yourself or another worker. The OHSA prohibits the employer from reprising against a worker for such things as
complying with the OHSA or seeking its enforcement.
Your supervisor will respect that right by taking “every precaution reasonable” in the circumstances to protect workers
and by complying with the process for work refusals specified in the Act. When a worker is refusing to do particular
work because it is likely to endanger him or herself, the supervisor must look into the worker’s concerns and do
everything they can to help the employer address them. Most of the time, the employer or the supervisor will be able
to solve the problem with the worker’s JHSC member. But if an agreement can’t be met on how to solve it and the
worker still feels the work is unsafe, a Ministry of Labour inspector will be called in to investigate.
For details on how this process works, refer to our policy: 5004 - Work Refusal Procedures (Attached: Appendix 4).
2. DUTIES OF A WORKER
The OHSA gives workers certain duties, as a student monitor
you must:
a) Follow the law and the workplace health and safety
policies and procedures.
b) Always wear or use the protective equipment that the
employer requires.
c) Work and act in a way that won’t hurt them or any other
worker.
d) Report any hazard they find in the workplace to your
supervisor.
9|P a ge
SUPERVISOR RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES
Every supervisor is also considered to be a worker and has the same workplace duties and rights as a worker. But if you
are also supervising others, the OHSA also gives you specific duties related to your role as a supervisor, including:
a) Telling workers about hazards and dangers and responding
to their concerns
b) Showing workers how to work safely and making sure they
follow the law, and the workplace health and safety policies
and procedures
c) Making sure workers wear and use the right protective
equipment
d) Doing everything reasonable in the circumstances to protect
workers from being hurt or getting a work related illness

SHOPS & STUDIOS PROGRAM
This section contains specific information for your studio in relation to:
1. Shop & Studio Dress Code
2. Chemical Safety
3. Equipment Safety
Within the program, you will be provided with the necessary tools and information to help guide you through the
processes and procedures to work safely in the shop and studio. This form of work information and instruction is
called: Safe Operating Procedures. Safe Operating Procedures (SOPs) are developed to ensure that where hazardous
processes, techniques, chemicals or equipment are performed or used there are clear written instructions that identify
the potential hazards and the correct steps to follow to complete the task safely. SOPs are used to train new staff and
students, as a reference when a task is to be performed, and as documentation of the correct procedure.
The Studio’s chemical, equipment and operational safe operating procedures are included in the appendix 8 for your
review.
SHOPS & STUDIOS DRESS CODE
Studio Management asks all faculty, staff and students to observe the following rules in all shops, and in certain studios.
Faculty and technicians will expect students' cooperation if they wish to use the shops and studios. Faculty and
technicians are empowered to suspend shop privileges if in their opinion a user may be putting him/herself or others in
danger.
a) Wear sturdy and appropriate shoes: e.g., sneakers, closed leather
shoes or work boots - NOT open-toed sandals, flip-flops or high
heels.
b) No bare midriffs if exposure to chemicals or tools/machinery is
likely, wear an apron if necessary.
c) Face-shields or safety glasses MUST be worn when using machinery,
and other personal protective equipment (e.g., gloves, splash
goggles, dust mask, respirator, hearing protection) must be worn if
needed.
d) No long, dangling clothing or accessories: (scarves, flowing sleeves,
chains, long necklaces, etc.). Long hair must be tied back.

CHEMICAL SAFETY
The Chemical Safety Program includes:
1. Training Requirements
WHMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System) is a Canada-wide system designed to give employers
and workers information about hazardous materials used in the workplace. Under WHMIS, there are three ways in
which information on hazardous materials is to be provided:
• Labels
• Material Safety Data Sheets
• Worker Education Programs
It is important for you to understand the purpose of the WHMIS program. Any worker who handles, works with, or
works in proximity to a hazardous material (controlled product) or has a potential for exposure will receive training
regarding the potential hazards of exposure.
This training program is available online, please log into CANVAS to complete the Chemical Safety Training.

Appendix 4: Work Refusal Policy
1.
Purpose:
The purpose of this procedure is to describe the process to address work refusals should they occur; it identifies the
various workplace parties involved in a work refusal and the process which must be followed to assure that the safety
concern, which triggered the work refusal process, is adequately addressed.
It also ensures that the OCAD University (“OCAD U” or the “University” complies with the Occupational Health and
Safety Act (OHSA), R.S.O. 1990, Section 43 (“The Act”).
2.
Scope:
This procedure applies to all employees, faculty, and students who are paid to do research, or carrying out any other
work that takes place on or off-campus that is under the purview of OCAD U.
3.
Definitions:
a. Certified member: a Joint Health and safety Committee member who is certified in accordance with the
OHSA.
b. Dangerous circumstance: a situation in which a provision of the Act is contravened; the contravention poses
a danger or a hazard to a worker and the danger or hazard is such that any delay in controlling it may
seriously endanger a worker.
c. Safety hazard: something that has the potential to cause physical harm to people or damage to property.
4.
Procedure:
4.1
Application of OHSA Work Refusals
•
•
4.2
All OCAD U employees can exercise their right to refuse unsafe work when they believe a safety hazard or
dangerous circumstance exists in the workplace.
Supervisors and employees must distinguish this work refusal procedure from every day due diligence
associated with the recognition, reporting and correcting of workplace safety hazards.
Initiating OHSA Work Refusals
The worker shall:
•
•
•
Notify his or her supervisor that he or she is refusing to perform unsafe work because he or she has reason
to believe that performing the work may endanger themselves or another worker.
Please be specific and explain in detail your reason for refusing work.
Remain in a safe place near the workstation until the investigation takes place.
29 | P a g e
4.3
OHSA Work Refusal Investigation
Step 1: Internal Resolution:
a. Upon an employee reporting a work refusal, the Supervisor requests the employee to specifically explain why he
or she is refusing work.
b. If the work refusal is not safety related, the work refusal stops, and the employee returns to work, and
addresses the concern using other appropriate venues.
c. However, if the work refusal is safety related, the Supervisor must immediately contact:
• JHSC worker member (preferably a certified member)
• Director, Safety and Risk Management (or designate)
d. Supervisor leads a joint investigation of the matter with the refusing employee, the JHSC worker member, and
the Director Safety and Risk Management.
e. If the employee feels that their safety is no longer threatened with the results and corrective measures
implemented following the investigation, they may return to work.
Step 2: External Resolution:
a. The employee may not be satisfied with the remedial action that is taken, and they may continue to refuse work
if he or she has reasonable grounds to believe that the work is still likely to endanger someone at OCAD U.
b. At this point, a Ministry of Labour inspector must be called in to investigate. The Director, Safety and Risk
Management will contact the Ministry of Labour and report the work refusal.
c. Pending the arrival of the Ministry of Labour inspector:
• The refusing employee remains in a safe place near the workstation.
• The refusing employee may be assigned reasonable alternate work.
• The Supervisor may ask another employee to perform the work that was refused; however this
employee must be advised of the other employee’s refusal and of his reasons for the refusal in the
presence of the JHSC worker member.
d. Once the Ministry of Labour Inspector is onsite, a joint investigation will be carried out with the MOL inspector,
the employee, the Supervisor, the JHSC member, and the Director, Safety and Risk Management.
e. The MOL inspector will issue a directive, and this must be complied with, pending appeals (if necessary)
f. The employee, Supervisor, JHSC member, and Director Safety and Risk Management must complete the “Work
Refusal Report”
4. 4
MOL Decision
a. Following the investigation, the MOL will issue a decision.
b. The decision must be complied with
c. The decision can be appealed, pending which it must still be complied with

Using your right to refuse unsafe work
The Occupational Health and Safety Act, Section 43, gives an employee the right to refuse unsafe work.
The flowchart below outlines the procedure to follow when this right is exercised in the workplace.
STEP 1: Internal Resolution



An employee may refuse work where he or she has reason to believe:
The equipment he or she is using is likely to endanger himself or a co-worker.
The physical condition of the workplace may endanger himself or a co-worker.
There is a contravention of the Occupational Health & Safety Act.
The employee immediately reports the circumstance to his or her supervisor and remains in a safe place.
The supervisor will ask the employee to explain specifically why he or she is refusing the work (may be in writing).
This will enable the supervisor to determine if the concern is safety related.
If the concern IS safety related:
If the concern IS NOT safety related:
Supervisor contacts the JHSC worker member,
Director Safety and Risk Mgmt., and with the
employee conducts a joint investigation
Work refusal ceases,
and employee returns to work.
Supervisor addresses concerns as appropriate
Is the employee is satisfied with the corrective measures taken to address the safety-related?
If NO: Work refusal continues,
and proceeds to Step 2: External Resolution
If YES: Work refusal ceases,
and employee returns to work returns to work
STEP 2: External Resolution


Employee continues to refuse work; must remain in a safe place; may be assigned reasonable alternative
work.
Pending the investigation, another employee may perform the work that was refused, provided the
employee has been informed of the work refusal by the JHSC worker member.
Director Safety and Risk Mgmt. notifies the Ministry of Labour (MOL) Inspector

Safe Operating Procedure (SOP)
This procedure is outlined as follows:
 General Safety Guidelines
 Equipment Specific Safety Operating Procedure
3.1 General Safety Guidelines
Before using the machine, perform the following general safety checks:
•
Make sure you understand all of the instructional material before operating this equipment. Failure to follow safety
instruction and warnings may result in serious personal injury, fire or property damage.
•
If you have any questions or uncertainties, please ask your studio technician before use.
•
Long hair, scarves, loose clothing, jewellery and ties pose an entanglement hazard. Please make sure these are
all constrained prior to operating the equipment.
•
Make sure the power cord is kept away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts and does not pose a trip
hazard.
•
Do not conduct any maintenance or repairs on this equipment. In case of a defect, contact your technician.
•
Ensure you know where the emergency stops for your equipment are prior to use and within reach during
operation. In the absence of an emergency stop, ensure that the power switch is within reach.
•
Do not remove or render machine guarding ineffective in any way.
•
Ensure the work area is both well lit and organized.
Equipment Specific Safe Operating Procedure (SOP)
Picture 3
Picture 2
Picture 1
1. Before sawing
a) Put on your PPEs
b) Set the correct speed (RPM) for the material being cut.
c) There is a guard on the upper blade guide (picture 1) – adjust this guard so
that it is just above the material being cut.
d) Adjust the table height and tilt the table to produce cuts at various angles
(see picture 2).
e) The ‘awareness barrier’ guard is equipped with adjustable guard.
CAUTION; this guard does not completely enclose the hazard zone nor
does it prevent operation if the guard is not in place-be careful when
operating the band saw.
f) Use the fence (picture 3) on the left of the blade to reduce guesswork
when cutting and to assist in parallel cuts or repetitive cuts and adjust the
fence for the drift of the blade and also the thickness of the cut.
g) Extreme caution must be exercised to avoid cuts from the blade’s sharp
teeth.
h) Ensure the push stick is close at hand. This will increase hand to blade
distance.
Picture 4
2. Sawing
Picture 5
3.2
a) It is unsafe to cut material that is unsupported by the table and should
never be attempted.
b) Start the band saw and allow it to gather speed before beginning the cut.
c) Do not feed work until the blade has reached full speed.
d) Place the work piece on the table (picture 4). Keep hands clear of the
blade.
e) Use a push stick/holding fixture (picture 5) at the end of a work piece-this
is the most dangerous time because the cut is complete and the blade is
exposed.
f) Feed the work piece in to the blade at a moderate speed.
g) If the material gets jammed, turn off the machine.
h) Ease up on sawing pressure as the saw starts to break through the
material.
i) The guide blocks must not come in contact with the blade teeth.
j) Do not stop or back out of a cut.
k) Never reach around or over the saw when in operation.
l) Use as little pressure as possible on the material to complete the task. Too
much pressure can put the operator’s hands and fingers at risk.
3. After sawing
a) Turn off the band saw and disconnect.
b) The machine will continue to spin after being switched off-let the saw stop
on its own accord after turning the power off. NEVER try to stop the saw
with your hand.
c) Remove the chips from the surrounding area with a brush, NEVER by hand.
d) Clean the band saw area upon completion of the task-use a rag to clean the
blade -careful that the cloth does not hook on the teeth. NEVER clean the
machine while it is in motion.
e) Sweep the floor surrounding the Band Saw.

blade
WEEKLY
Ensure that buildup is not occurring on the rubber tires; especially on the lower wheel. Clean the surface by
sanding it with sand paper.
Lubricate the saw with a Teflon-based lubricant.
MONTHLY
Inspect the ceramic side and back guides for cracks and chips-replace if necessary.
Inspect the drive belts for cracks, cuts and wear-replace if necessary-never replace just one belt as this
could cause vibration.
Clean the guides with a solvent and then lubricate with a Teflon-based lubricant.
✔
✔
Lubricate all moving non-painted parts with a Teflon based lubricant.
Protect the table and fence bar by coating with wax, if the machine is not in constant use.
Ensure that the blade is free of defects-replace if necessary-use gloves.
ANNUALLY
Ensure that the body of the band saw is rigid as this takes the strain of the blade being tensioned.

Equipment Specific Safe Operating Procedure (SOP)
Picture 1
1. Before sawing
a) Put on your PPE. Never wear gloves while using a belt-disc sander; they
may become caught in the rotating mechanism and cause severe injury.
b) Ensure the dust collection system is on.
c) Position the belt sander arm vertically, horizontally (picture 1) or angled.
NEVER adjust the table angle while sander is running.
d) Turn on the power.
e) Check the sanders stability while running BEFORE operating on it-ensure
the belt/disc does not wobble or run out.
f) Beware of pinch point and entanglement hazards between the belt and
machine frame.
Picture 2
2. Belt Sanding - Vertically
Picture 3
3.2
a) Wait for the belt to reach full speed before sanding or polishing. The belt
should travel clockwise. (picture 2)
b) Do not force any part of a work piece on any sanding surface.
c) Use the miter gauge for sanding accurate angles, if required: carefully place
the work piece against the miter reference surface (picture 3) and slide it
along the reference surface and in to the sanding belt.
d) Sanding a flat surface: Firmly hold the work piece with both hands; keep
your fingers away from the belt.
e) Using the backstop: The backstop is used to support and position your
work piece. Place an end of your work piece against the backstop and then
apply it to the belt. Be careful when sanding thin work pieces.
f) Sanding long pieces: Do not apply too much pressure on a long work piece.
Apply only enough pressure so that the sanding belt removes the material.
g) Sanding curved sides: External curves must be sanded on the flat portion
of the belt. Internal curves must be sanded on the drum portion of the
belt.
h) End sanding: It is more practical to end sand a long work piece with the
belt in its vertical position. The work piece must be moved equally along
the belt. Use the miter gauge (picture 3) for precise work. Make sure the
belt table is perfectly square with the belt.
Picture 6
Picture 5
Picture 4
3. Belt Sanding - Horizontally
a) Use backstop to support your work piece.
b) Do not force any part of a work piece on any sanding surface.
c) Place the material on the sander in a way to prevent kickback (picture 4).
Do not place the work piece in a position that may cause kickback (picture
5).
d) To sand curved surfaces, the end drum can be used.
e) To sand curved surfaces, the end drum can be used (see picture 6).
f) Do not place your hands near the opening between the belt and the
machine frame. This can cause a pinch point hazard.
g) If sanding accurate angles, carefully place the work piece against the miter
reference surface (picture 3) and slide it along the reference surface and in
to the sanding belt.
Picture 7
4. Disc Sanding
a) When sanding small flat surfaces or convex edges is needed, disc sanding
(picture 7) is the best method.
b) The disc rotates fast in a clockwise motion, removing more of the external
edge of the work piece – be cautious and keep fingertips as far away from
the disc as possible.
c) Do not force any part of a work piece on any sanding surface.
d) Hold small or thin pieces of stock in a jig or holding device to prevent
injuries to the fingers or hands.
e) Always present the work piece to the wheel while resting the work piece
firmly on the table (to prevent throwing of the work piece off the wheel
causing injury).
f) Keep the material held flat against the table and pushed up against the
disc.
5. After Sanding
a) Turn off the power and disconnect the sander.
b) Clean the sander and the workspace. NEVER clean the machine while it is
in motion.
c) Remove all accumulated debris on the sander.
d) Clean the drums to prevent tracking problems and slippage of the sanding
belt.
e) Clean the dust chute to avoid major accumulation of dust inside the
sander.
f) Use a vacuum to clean the motor.
g) Sweep the floor surrounding the sander.

Equipment Specific Safe Operating Procedure (SOP)
Picture 1
1. Installing drill bit
a) Put on your PPE. Do not wear gloves when operating the drill press.
b) Insert the drill bit shank securely into the chuck and tighten the chuck by
hand (see picture 1). Use a correctly ground drill bit for the material being
drilled
c) Use the chuck key to further secure the drill bit.
d) Ensure the chuck safety guard is in place.
e) Caution: The ‘adjustable barrier’ guard does not completely enclose the
hazard zone-be careful when operating the drill to prevent an
entanglement hazard.
f) REMOVE the chuck key before operating the drill press.
Picture 2
2. Before drilling
a) Adjust the nut stop to set the desired depth of the drill bit (see picture 2)
e.g. if you want the hole being drilled to be a specific depth
b) Note the desired area(s) to be drilled; mark the area(s).
c) Place a backing board beneath the work material on the drill table to
prevent splintering of the material/bit damage/table damage.
3. Adjusting the table
Picture 3
3.2
a) The table can be raised/lowered on the drill press column by loosening the
table clamp handle and turning the table raising and lowering handle (see
picture 3).
b) After the table is at the desired height, tighten handle.
c) The table can be rotated 360 degrees by loosening the table rotation lock
handle and rotating the table to the desired position, then tighten the
table.
4. Drilling
Picture 4
Picture 5
a) Turn on the light switch if required.
b) Use a clamp or vice (see picture 4) to secure the material to the table via
the T channels to prevent the work piece from spinning. NEVER work free
hand.
c) Ensure that the longest dimension of the work piece is to the left of your
body, so that if it does come lose it can be stopped from spinning a
complete revolution. (Drill Presses turn clockwise when cutting; the
material has a tendency to spin clockwise as well).
d) Turn on the drill and allow it to gain full speed before drilling.
e) Lower the bit on to the desired area(s), holding it there so that it digs in to
the work material slightly.
f) Rotate the pilot wheel (which lowersthe spindle) (see picture 5), down and
towards you slowly to begin drilling. Be careful when using this springloaded wheel that it does not come in contact with you if accidentally
released.
g) Withdraw the drill bit frequently to clear the chips and lubricate the bit.
h) Ease up on drilling pressure as the drill starts to break through the other
side of the material.
i) If the drill binds in a hole, stop the machine and turn the spindle backwards
by hand to release the bit.
j) Let the spindle stop on its own accord after turning the power off. NEVER
try to stop the spindle with your hand and DON’T touch the bit
immediately, as it may be hot.
k) If anything unexpected occurs, immediately disable the equipment by
using the emergency shut-off switch and/or removing the attachment plug.
3. After drilling
a) Turn off the machine when not in use.
b) Once drilling is ceased, remove the chips from the drill bit and surrounding
area with a brush, NEVER by hand.
c) Loosen the clamp/vice and remove the work piece.
d) Remove the drill bit from the chuck using the chuck key.
e) Clean the drill press table and work area upon completion of the task.
NEVER clean the machine while it is in motion.
f) Sweep the floor surrounding the drill press.

Equipment Specific Safe Operating Procedure (SOP)
Picture 1
1. Before using the Lathe
a) Put on your PPE.
b) Do not wear gloves while operating this machine-the lathe wheels could
pull them in, causing injury.
c) Ensure that lathe is turned off while inserting chuck.
d) Select the buffing compound (see picture 1).
e) Line up the wheel with the spindle when mounting.
f) Make sure that the wheel is not in contact with the work when you start
the lathe.
g) Stand to one side, turn the switch on and allow the motor to reach full
speed.

c)
d)
e)
Picture 2
3.2
Beware of the rotating spindles and heat generated.
Once the wheel is at full speed, apply buffing compound.
Always keep hands at least 2 inches from wheels.
Use a holder when practical to keep hands away from the wheel.
Using both hands to support the material, apply the material firmly and
slowly to the front/face, lower ¼ of the wheel (see picture 2), without
bumping. Therefore, if the work piece is caught by the wheel, the wheel
will normally spin the piece downward.
f) Do not hook your hand under the work piece.
g) NEVER try to stop the wheels with your hand and don’t touch the work
piece immediately, as it may be hot.
h) If you notice the wheel is not balanced or is wobbling, turn off machine and
report to technician.
i) Use as little pressure as possible on the material to complete the task. Too
much pressure will burn the material and put the operator’s hands and
fingers at risk should the material get pulled from the grip of the operator.
j) Move the work back and forth in slow, even strokes.
k) If anything unexpected occurs, immediately disable the equipment by
switching it off and/or removing the attachment plug.
4. After using the Lathe
a) Turn off the Lathe.
b) Wait until the wheel has come to a complete stop - Never leave the
machine unattended until it has come to a complete stop.
c) Clean the Lathe area upon completion of the task. NEVER clean the
machine while it is in motion.
d) Sweep the floor surrounding the Lathe.
e) Use a brush or vacuum to remove debris.
f) Replace compounds.
g) Wipe down polishing dust to prevent accumulation.
h) Wash hands thoroughly.

Screening procedures for Introducing new chemicals OCAD U
Purpose for this Procedure:
1. To define chemical products that are restricted and cannot be introduced to the facility without explicit permission of the Office
of Safety and Risk Management.
2.
To the extent practicable, avoid introducing to the facility any new products or chemicals that are:
a) highly hazardous to health, safety, the environment, or the property, or
b) require significant effort to maintain regulatory compliance.
3.
To ensure that we comply with all applicable regulatory requirements and good safety practices in relation to any newly
introduced products or chemicals.
4.
Describe the information gathering activities and compliance actions that must be taken prior to or in connection with
introducing and procuring chemicals and products.
Restricted Substances List:
1. No “new product” containing any substance on the OCAD U Restricted Substance List shall be purchased or brought onto OCAD
U property unless prior written approval is obtained from the Office of Safety and Risk Management. A “new product” is one
that was not listed on the OCAD U Master Chemical Inventory, as of December 2011.
2.
"OCAD U Restricted Substances" are substances that are subject to significant health, safety or environmental regulatory
compliance obligations, and / or may present significant hazards to health, safety or the environment. Approval to purchase or
bring onto the property an OCAD U Restricted Substance shall only be granted if the compliance requirements identified in the
list are complied with.
3.
It is the responsibility of the “new product user” (i.e. the person wishing to obtain the new product, or his / her supervisor or
manager) to ensure compliance with the requirements shown on the list.
4.
For assistance and guidance in complying with any OCAD U Restricted Substances requirements, contact the Office of Safety and
Risk Management.

Is the chemical a liquid with a
flash point under 93.3 Celcius, or
a flammable compressed gas?
Guidance
This information can be obtained from the material safety data sheet. If the chemical
is a liquid and has a flash point between 37.8 C and 93.3 C, it is classed as a
"combustible liquid" under the Ontario Fire Code. If the chemical is a liquid with a
flash point less than 37.8 C, it is classed as a "flammable liquid" under the Ontario Fire
Code. Substance-specific safety plans must be prepared for flammable or
combustible liquids, and for flammable compressed gases, and these classes of
substances are also subject to additional OCAD procedures that are intended to
ensure compliance with Ontario Fire Code and Ontario Electrical Safety Code
requirements.

Action
Is the chemical a "controlled
product" under the federal
Hazardous Products Act?
Guidance
"Controlled product" is the term used for pure substances and products that possess
chemical, physical, toxic, biohazardous or radioactive characteristics defined by the
Controlled Products Regulations under the federal Hazardous Products Act.
"Controlled products" are also often referred to as "WHMIS products", since those
substances and products are subject to the Ontario Workplace Hazardous Materials
Information System Regulation. If the material is a "controlled product", the material
safety data sheet may specify the "WHMIS Class" or "Controlled Product Class" for the
substance, which will be a number or number+letter combination, but it is not
mandatory for this information to be on the material safety data sheet. It is also the
case that many products that are not "controlled products" have material safety data
sheets, despite the absence of a regulatory requirement for one. A sure way of
determining if a substance is a "controlled product" is to examine the label. If it is a
"controlled product", then the label will have one or more of the symbols shown in
"Screening Procedures Prior to the Introduction of New Chemicals or Products to
OCAD University" procedure.
If the product is a "controlled
product", have users received
WHMIS training in the chemical?
If the product is a "controlled
product", ensure that a material
safety data sheet published less
than 3 years ago will be available
at locations where the substance
is stored, used or handled.
If the product is a "controlled
product", ensure that the
original container(s) have
WHMIS-compliant labels.
If the product is a "controlled
product", ensure that WHMIScompliant workplace labels will
be available if necessary to affix
to temporary storage containers
Where on-site will the chemical
be stored by the user? Will it be
stored beside other chemicals?
Are the chemicals with which it
will be stored compatible with
the new chemical?
See the procedure entitled "Training of Personnel in Chemical Safety" for information
on arranging this training.
The most practical way of doing so is to copy the material safety data sheet and place
the copy into MSDS binders at the appropriate locations.
It is a responsibility of the manufacturer and supplier to ensure compliant labelling.
See the procedure entitled "Requirements for Material Safety Data Sheet and Labels"
for guidance on how to when workplace WHMIS labels are required for temporary
containers, and how to prepare same.
Consult the procedure entitled "Chemical Storage Procedures" for advice on safe
storage practices.
Screening Guidance Notes
Step
22
Action
Is the chemical one that can only
be used inside a fume hood? Is
one present? Has it been tested
/ certified to be functioning
properly?
Guidance
The determination of whether a chemical must be used in a fume hood is based on
factors such as: (1) the potential for release of harmful airborne emissions; (2)
potential for harmful spills; (3) potential for runaway reactions; (4) potential for
explosions. If you are uncertain as to whether usage should be restricted to a fume
hood, contact Studio Management or Studio Technician for assistance. If a fumehood
is required and is available, it is necessary to verify that it has been tested and
certified as functioning properly. If it has been certified, there will be a sticker affixed
to the fume hood at a visible place indicating who performed the testing, when the
certification occurred, and when it expires.
24
If the chemical will emit gases,
vapour, smoke, fume or mist
during handling or use, how are
these emissions being contained
and vented outdoors?
If any emitted gases, vapour,
smoke, fume or mist is being
released to the indoor
atmosphere, is the current
general ventilation system a
suitable and adequate control
measure?
If the chemical is not being used in a fume hood or with other local exhaust
ventilation, then any air emissions will be diluted in the general atmosphere inside
the building, and will be partially exhausted and partially recirculated by the general
ventilation system.
25
26
27
28
Substances that can be emitted into the general atmosphere of the building without
perceptible impacts include carbon dioxide, nitrogen, argon, helium, small quantities
of low toxicity organic solvents, and residues from the evaporation of cleaning
products. If you are uncertain as to the acceptability of emissions to the general
atmosphere inside the building, or the adequacy of the general ventilation in the area
where the emissions would occur, contact Facilities Planning & Management for
assistance.
If the chemical will emit gases,
vapour, smoke, fume or mist,
does the existing OCAD Air
Certificate of Approval cover
these emissions?
What personal protective
equipment is required to be
worn by users? Is it available
and have users been trained in
proper use?
The Office of Safety and Risk Management will make arrangements to add product on
the CoA if required.
Who will be designated as having
ultimate responsibility for
compliance with safety
requirements relating to the
chemical?
This needs to be determined, and should be documented on the screening form. The
person assigned should be competent to exercise the necessary responsibilities.
The material safety data sheet for the product will specify the types of personal
protective equipment recommended for use by the manufacturer. If you are
concerned that additional or lesser protective measures are appropriate, contact
Studio Management for assistance. Verify that proposed users have or will have the
necessary protective equipment, and that they have been or will be trained in proper
use. For guidance on training, see the procedure entitled "Training of Personnel in
Chemical Safety" for information on arranging this training.
Verification of Implementation Compliance:
Following receipt of a “new product”, the verifying manager shall examine the manner of product storage, handling, use and
disposal, to verify the correctness of these practices.

Procedure for managing MSDS and labels
Purpose for this Procedure
1. To ensure that personnel have ready access to information for safe use of chemical products.
2. Comply with requirements of the Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (“WHMIS”) Regulation.
3. To specify the processes for obtaining and maintaining material safety data sheets (“MSDSs”).
4. To provide instruction on when workplace labels are required, and their format and content.
Regulatory Context
1. The Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System Regulation – made under the Occupational Health and Safety Act,
requires employers to have and make readily available to employees material safety data sheets for all “controlled products”.
2. It also requires employers to ensure that “workplace labels” are prepared and applied to any container into which a controlled
product is decanted (i.e. a container other than the one in which the product was originally received from the supplier).
1.
Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS):
Obtaining Material Safety Data Sheets with Product Orders
1. OCAD University Purchase Order shall contain an instruction to vendors specifying that (a) a MSDS must accompany each
shipment of a chemical substance or product, and (b) OCAD University reserves the right to decline to accept or reject any
shipment or delivery of a chemical substance or product that is not accompanied by a MSDS.
2.
OCAD University and the Campus Services Department will not release to any user any controlled chemical substance or product
that has been received without being accompanied by a MSDS, unless the user provides the Office of Safety and Risk
Management a current MSDS for the chemical substance or product prepared by the actual supplier.
3.
In cases where a MSDS has not been received with a shipment or delivery, it is acceptable for an OCAD University user to
download from the internet the supplier’s MSDS for the chemical substance or product, and provide this to Studio
Management.
4.
The following diagram illustrates the flow of MSDSs:
Process for Maintaining Central Files of Material Safety Data Sheets
1. Studio Management will maintain a set of binders containing MSDSs for all products received or delivered.
2.
Studio Management will provide the Office of Safety and Risk Management with an electronic copy of each MSDS received as
described in 4. below.
3.
The Office of Safety and Risk Management shall create a PDF file for every MSDS. PDF files shall be named as the name of the
product, plus an abbreviation for the supplier, plus the MSDS creation date (in the format YYMMDD), each separated by a
period (e.g. Acetone.JTBaker.090430).
4.
The electronic directory of MSDS’ shall be located on MSDS Online through the Office of Safety and Risk Management.
Process for Maintaining Binders of MSDSs at Work Locations
1. A white, 3-ring MSDS binder shall be kept in close proximity of locations where chemicals are stored.
2.
The binder shall be labeled as follows:
a. Material Safety Data Sheets
b. Department Name
c. Location (Building, Floor, Room Number)
3.
Each binder shall contain a set of “A” through “Z” alphabetic tab dividers. Products starting with numbers shall be filed before
the “A” tab.
4.
MSDSs shall be filed in the binder by product name, such that the MSDS is placed behind the tab corresponding to the first letter
in the product name (e.g. acetone would be behind the “A” tab).
5.
Where there are MSDSs for several products having names starting with the same letter, the MSDSs shall be filed in alphabetical
order according to the subsequent letters in the product name (e.g. “acetone” would be filed behind “acetic acid”).
6.
A MSDS shall be added to the binder each time a new MSDS is received for a product.
7.
When a MSDS is added to the binder,
a) the chemical inventory for the location must be updated (see “Chemical Inventory Record Keeping Requirements”),
b) any older version of the MSDS for the product shall be removed and disposed.
8.
Should any alphanumeric tab divider be empty (due to there being no products having names beginning with that letter), a
sheet shall be inserted that states “NO PRODUCTS IN THIS TAB”.
9.
At least once per year, at the time of reviewing and updating the location-specific inventory (see “Chemical Inventory Record
Keeping Requirements”), the contents of the MSDS binder must be reconciled against the inventory, and any inconsistencies
must be remedied, so that the contents of the MSDS binder match the up-to-date inventory.
2.
Labels:
Supplier Container Labeling Obligations
It is a responsibility of the manufacturer and supplier to ensure WHMIS compliant labeling of every controlled product container.
Levels of compliance are typically high for Canadian and American suppliers. Should a user contemplate ordering a product from a
supplier in another jurisdiction, verify that the containers will have WHMIS compliant labeling before placing the order.
Workplace Labeling Obligations for Decanted Products
1. If a controlled product is decanted or transferred from the original supplier container into a secondary or portable container, or
mixed together with another controlled product or non-controlled product, the user must ensure that a WHMIS-compliant
“workplace label” is affixed to the container, except in circumstances described in 3 below.
2.
A workplace label can be hand-written, a pre-printed form, or downloaded from MSDS Online so long as the information
described in 4. below is present.
3. A workplace label is not required to be affixed to a secondary or portable container if either of the following conditions apply:
a) the product will be used immediately in its entirety, or
b) the product is,
 under the exclusive control of one person,
 to be used exclusively use of one person,
 to be used in its entirety during the course of the work shift, and
 the product name is marked on the container.
4.
Workplace labels for secondary containers must contain the following information:
a) The product / substance name (identical to that on the MSDS)
b) Safe handling information (a synopsis of key points from the supplier label)
c) A statement that an MSDS is available
5.
Pre-printed workplace labels can be obtained online from MSDS Online as well as the Sharepoint link created for the Shops and
Studio Technicians.
3.
Procedures for transporting chemicals within OCAD U
Purpose for this Procedure
1. To ensure that chemical products are moved from place to place within the facility in a safe manner, and reduce the risk of spills
or other incidents.
1.
Compressed Gas Cylinders
a) Empty or Full Gas Cylinders – Nominal Height under 38 cm (Except Acetylene)
1. Gas cylinders having a nominal height (i.e. base to top of valve cap) under 38 cm are permitted
be manually carried from place to place by personnel, so long as the valve stem is protected by
valve cap or other device that prevents leakage or release if the cylinder is dropped or
damaged.
to
a
2.
If it is impractical to manually carry cylinders of these sizes from place to place, you must use a
small cylinder cart as shown here.
3.
If necessary to transport between levels in the building, these cylinders may be taken onto elevators, but only outside of public
access hours.
b) Empty or Full Gas Cylinders – Nominal Height 38 cm or More (Except Acetylene)
1. Gas cylinders having a nominal height (i.e. base to top of valve cap) of 38 cm or more must be transported using a gas
cylinder cart of the type shown in 2.1 above (for cylinders having diameters under 11 cm), or a dolley (for larger cylinders),
as shown here.
2.
When using the dolly for transporting large cylinders,
 ensure that the cylinder is secured in position by the strap
 ensure that the valve is fully closed and the valve cap is in place
 never leave the dolly unattended
 always keep the dolly in the upright or 4-wheel tilted position
 never allow the dolly with a cylinder to rest with the cylinder “lying down” in
horizontal position
the
3.
If necessary to transport between levels in the building, large cylinders requiring dolly transport are not to be taken onto
public usage elevators nor onto escalators, and can only be elevated using the service elevator(s)
4.
Never transport large cylinders through public access areas during public access hours.
c)
Acetylene Cylinders
1. Acetylene cylinders must always be transported using a cart or dolly
2.
When using the dolly for transporting large cylinders,
 ensure that the cylinder is secured in position by the strap
 ensure that the valve is fully closed and the valve cap is in place
 never leave the dolly unattended
 always keep the cylinder in the upright tilted position – this is particularly important for acetylene cylinders because
they contain a liquid solvent
 never allow the dolly with a cylinder to rest with the cylinder “lying down” in the horizontal position – this is
particularly important for acetylene cylinders because they contain a liquid solvent
3.
If necessary to transport between levels in the building, acetylene cylinders are not to be taken onto public usage elevators
nor onto escalators, and can only be elevated using the service elevator(s).
4.
Never transport acetylene cylinders through public access areas during public access hours.
2.
Solids and Liquids in Supplier Containers or Secondary / Portable Containers
Supplier Boxed Shipments (Dock Area to User Storage Location)
1.
For hazardous chemicals delivered in boxes (e.g. plastic or glass container(s)
inside of a packing box), or in bulk primary containers up to 20 liters, either of the
following types of carrier should be used to transport the item(s) from the
chemical storage room to the user’s storage location.
2.
Chemical kits that are shipped by suppliers in a boxed or containerized format that is inherently protected and designed to
contain spillage (may be transported by being manually carried, or in accordance with Section 3 (b).
3.
When using this type of carrier for transporting hazardous chemicals,
a) load the bottom shelf before loading the top shelf (be careful to avoid strains and sprains when lifting and bending)
b) make sure that the total weight of the load on the top shelf is not more than about half the weight of the load on the
bottom shelf (this keeps the center of gravity low, making it easier to handle, and reducing risk of toppling over)
c) never pile objects on the top shelf at a height that obstructs your view when pushing the carrier
d) never stack boxes two high or higher on a shelf without securing the load using straps or heavy tape
e) never leave the carrier unattended while in transit
4.
The carrier shown above must not be used for transporting any compressed gas.
5.
If necessary to transport between levels in the building, these are not to be taken onto public usage elevators during public
access hours, and can only be elevated using the service elevator(s) during public access hours. If it is not possible or practical
to use service elevator(s) after public access hours, then public usage elevators or escalators may be used.
6.
Never transport hazardous chemicals using these carriers through public access areas during public access hours.
3.
Individual Bottles / Containers
1.
Transporting individual containers of hazardous chemicals that are not held inside of a kit or other
of secondary container should be avoided if possible.
type
2.
If it is necessary to transport individual bottles or containers of hazardous chemicals, use either of
types of carriers shown. If the cart for individual bottles and chemicals is used, ensure that the
containers placed inside the drawers are secured against tipping over while in transit.
the
3.
If using a carrier to transport two or more chemically incompatible or reactive materials that are not pre-packaged into kits,
separate the incompatible items to reduce potential for mixing in the event of container leakage or breakage.
Hazardous Waste Materials
1. Containers with hazardous waste materials must be transported from their point of production to the chemical waste lock-up by
Campus Services Staff using any of the carriers described above.
2.
The choice of carrier must be made on the basis of the type of container holding the hazardous waste.
Markings on Carriers
1. Whenever a chemical container is transported inside of a tote or an enclosed carrier, the person responsible for transporting
the material must ensure that a description of the non-visible contents is provided on the outside of the tote and or carrier.
2.
Hand-written paper or cardboard temporary signs, affixed to the container with tape, are adequate, so long as they are legible
and can be read at a distance of about 2 meters (e.g. write the contents in capital letters, using a dark magic marker on white
paper or cardboard).
4.
Procedure for storing chemicals
Principles and Rules Governing Storage Practices
1. Chemicals possess a variety of chemical and physical properties. Some of these properties are incompatible. If chemicals with
incompatible properties are inadvertently or unexpected mixed together, dangerous reactions can occur, resulting in risks to
health, safety, property or the environment.
2. For the reasons described above, it is important to store chemicals at locations, and in ways that reduce the potential for
incompatible chemicals mixing together as a result of spills, leakage, container rupture, or fires.
3. Chemicals at OCAD University must be stored in accordance with rules contained in this procedure.
Determining Storage Requirements for a Substance
1. To determine the storage requirements for a chemical, consult the relevant sections of this procedure, and the Material Safety
Data Sheet for the chemical.
2. In the event of any contradiction between this Procedure and Material Safety Data Sheets, contact the Office of Safety and Risk
Management for instructions on proper storage procedures.

d) first aid kits
1.
The locations of fire extinguishers in the building are shown in the fire safety plan, which is posted at various locations in the
facility.
2.
Spill clean-up kits and first aid kits shall be inspected at least once every month to verify that contents are complete and in good
condition. The Office of Safety and Risk Management is responsible for performing these inspections, recording findings on the
inspection checklists contained with the kits, and advising Studio Management of any deficiencies. The Office of Safety and Risk
Management is responsible for replenishing any supplies as necessary.
3.
Deluge showers and eye wash stations must be tested to verify functionality at least once every year. The Office of Safety and
Risk Management is responsible for performing these inspections, and advising Studio Management of any deficiencies. Studio
Management is responsible for remedying any deficiencies.
Be Prepared in Advance
1. The chances for successfully dealing with a spill, accident or emergency involving a chemical are significantly increased by,
a) thinking before using the chemical about the types of things that could go wrong or cause a spill, accident, or other
emergency,
b) planning the work in a manner that minimizes the risk of these scenarios,
c) ensuring that you understand the magnitude of the potential hazard that could result from a spill, accident or other
emergency, should it occur,
d) ensuring that you or others know what to do in the event of a spill, accident or other emergency, and have the ability to
rapidly and effectively respond to the emergency, in order to protect yourself and others, and
e) ensuring that any necessary emergency equipment and supplies are readily accessible for use if needed, and that the
quantities available are sufficient for the potential magnitude of spill or emergency,
f) knowing the locations of the nearest eye wash, emergency shower, and washrooms, for use in case of a need to flush skin
or eyes.
2.
All chemical users and their supervisors are responsible for “knowing what to do” in case of an emergency involving a chemical
under their control.
Actions to Take in Case of a Spill of any Hazardous Material
1. Have unnecessary personnel (employees and students) leave the area of potential danger.
2.
If a corrosive chemical has been splashed onto a person’s skin or in their eyes, assist them in getting immediately to the nearest
eye wash station, or emergency shower, or washroom, as appropriate, to flush their skin or eyes. Have another person call for
first aid or emergency medical assistance, as appropriate, and continue flushing for at least 10 minutes in the case of minor
contact or until emergency medical assistance arrives in the case of major contact.
3.
If the substance that has spilled is flammable or combustible, eliminate any nearby sources of ignition, if possible. If the amount
spilled is large enough to present a potential fire risk, smother the spilled material with the foam from an ABC fire extinguisher.
4.
If the substance is not flammable, have one person obtain a spill control kit and any necessary additional personal protective
equipment, while another person remains near the spill to keep persons out of harm’s way.
5.
Once the spill kit arrives, use the appropriate materials to stop the spread of the spill, absorb it, and clean it up. Use the
appropriate personal protective equipment while cleaning up the spill.
6.
If the spilled material is flammable or combustible, have a person stand-by with a fire extinguisher while the spill is being
cleaned up, ready to respond if the material catches fire.
7.
Used spill clean-up materials must be handled in accordance with applicable procedures for on-site chemical waste transport,
and waste storage and handling.
Internal Notifications
The Office of Safety and Risk Management and Campus Services shall be promptly advised of the occurrence of any chemical spill or
inadvertent release.
External Notifications
Specific government agencies must be notified of certain kinds of incidents or emergencies involving chemicals, as described below.
a)
Reporting Explosions
Explosions must be reported to the Technical Standards and Safety Authority (Telephone: 416-734-3327) where they have
caused injury, damage to the equipment, or a fire by Facilities Management. Minor ‘delayed ignitions’ would not normally
be considered to be reportable.
b) Reporting Liquid Petroleum Spills
1. Any spill of a petroleum product must be reported to the Ministry of Environment Spills Action Centre (Telephone: 1 (800)
268-6060, or (416) 325-3000) if the spill is in excess of:
 100 liters at sites restricted from public access
 25 liters at sites with public access
2.
It is not mandatory to report spills of lesser quantities unless the spill would:
 create a hazard to public health or safety
 contaminate any fresh water source or waterway
 interfere with the rights of any person, or
 allow entry of product into a sewer system or underground stream or drainage system.
c)
Discovery of a Petroleum Product that has escaped to the Environment or Inside a Building
The discovery of a petroleum product that has escaped to the environment or inside a building must be reported to the
Ministry of Environment Spills Action Centre (Telephone: 1 (800) 268-6060, or (416) 325-3000) by the Office of Safety and
Risk Management.
d) Reporting Spills to the Environment
1. Spills are defined as releases of pollutants into the natural environment originating from a structure, vehicle, or other
container, and that are abnormal in light of all circumstances.
2.
Spills must be reported immediately to the Ministry of Environment and to the municipality when they cause or are likely to
cause any of the following:
 impairment to the quality of the natural environment - air, water, or land;
 injury or damage to property or animal life;
 adverse health effects;
 safety risk;
 making property, plant, or animal life unfit for use;
 loss of enjoyment of normal use of property; or
 interference with the normal conduct of business.
3.
Spills must be reported to the Ministry of Environment Spills Action Centre (Telephone 1-800-268-6060, or (416) 325-3000,
Fax: (416) 325-3011) by the Office of Safety and Risk Management.
Posting this Procedure
This procedure must be posted in close proximity to locations where personnel store and use hazardous chemicals in a manner that
presents risk of a hazardous spill, leak or release.
6.
Safety Procedures for Chemical Users
Preparation for Use
1. Consult the current material safety data sheet and container label prior to using any chemical substance for the first time.
2. If the chemical is one for which a substance-specific emergency plan, safety plan, or designated substance assessment is
required, consult the appropriate documents prior to use.
3. Ensure that you know the basic minimum personal protective equipment that must be used that it is available, and that you
know how to use it.
4. Ensure that you know the types of harm that can result from overexposure to the chemical, leakage, or spills.
5. Ensure that you know the locations of emergency equipment and supplies (safety showers, emergency eye wash stations, first
aid kits, spill kits, fire extinguishers), and that you know how to use and operate same.
6. Don’t work alone or in isolation with chemicals that are flammable, combustible, or can cause serious injury from skin contact or
inhalation. The idea is to ensure that someone is close enough to render help if necessary.
7. If you don’t fully understand the hazards and safety requirements for a chemical, don’t use it.
8. If you need further information on hazards and safety practices contact your Studio Managers.

substances:
a) a solution with a pH less than 6.0 or greater than 11.5
b) a solution consisting of two or more separate liquid layers
c) any liquid with a temperature greater than 60 degrees Celsius
d) acute hazardous waste chemicals
e) flammable or combustible liquids (i.e. those having a flash point under 93.3 Celsius)
f) biomedical waste
g) fuels
h) ignitable wastes
i) hazardous waste chemicals
j) pathological waste
k) pesticides
l) reactive waste
m) severely toxic waste
n) waste radioactive substances
2.
Wastes must not be intentionally mixed with any solid or liquid so that the waste’s hazardous characteristics would be diluted
below a regulatory level.
3.
If you uncertain as to the proper manner for disposal of any particular substance, contact the Office of Safety and Risk
Management for guidance.
Empty Containers of Hazardous Substances
1. Containers which formerly contained regulated (hazardous) substances must be empty to be classified as a non-hazardous
waste. An empty container is defined as having < 2.5 cm of residue remaining at the bottom of the container or less than 3% of
the original contents, whichever is the lesser amount.
2.
Former hazardous substances containers that meet the condition described above must be
labeled as shown prior to disposal:
3.
Labels may be obtained from the Studio Management Office who is also responsible for
maintaining stock of these labels.
Locations Where Hazardous Waste Storage is Permitted and Prohibited
1. Hazardous wastes generated at a user’s location are to be stored (pending removal to the hazardous waste storage area by
Campus Service) in accordance with the procedure entitled “Chemical Storage Procedures”.
2.
Hazardous wastes shall not be stored at any location other than the chemical storage room.
3.
As soon as practicable after generation, hazardous wastes must be taken to the hazardous waste storage lock-up area located
near the Ceramics Studio. Hazardous wastes must be transported within the facility in accordance with the procedure entitled
“Procedures for Transporting Hazardous Chemicals within OCAD University”.
4.
Once taken to the hazardous waste storage area located near the Ceramics Studio, the hazardous waste must be placed in the
appropriate storage cabinet or container, as follows:
a) flammable or combustible wastes must be stored in the flammable storage cabinet
b) corrosive wastes must be stored in the corrosives storage cabinet, placed on the appropriate shelf for acids, bases or
oxidizers
c) toxic wastes that are not flammable, combustible or corrosive must be stored in the toxics storage cabinet
d) waste batteries in the battery tote
e) bags of fluorescent tube breakage waste in the fluorescent tube waste tote
Segregation, Labeling and Interim Containment Requirements at User Locations
1. Hazardous wastes kept at a user location must be physically segregated from other hazardous materials according to their
physical and chemical properties, in the manner described in the procedure entitled “Chemical Storage Procedures”.
2.
Hazardous wastes must be held in containers that are suitable for the chemical and physical properties of the waste (e.g.
corrosion resistant). If the hazardous waste has the same properties as the original substance, use a container comparable to
the container in which the original substance was held.
3.
If you are uncertain as to the proper type of container to use, contact the Office of Safety and Risk Management.
4.
All hazardous waste containers must be labeled with the following information.
a) Location or activity that produced the waste.
b) Major chemical components or trade name of the waste.
c) Date the waste was produced.
d) Name of the OCAD University contact person.
e) When waste is being added to the container over a period of time, the initial START
date as well as the FILLED date, should be written on the container. (This provides a
mechanism to determine the storage time and potential need for a change in waste
management practices.)
5.
If you do not know some or all of the information in 4.a. through 4.e., contact Studio
Management for assistance.
6.
The following is an example of a commercially printed label that can be used for waste
containers
Hazardous Waste Label
Users can obtain hazardous waste labels and packing supplies from Studio Management and Campus Services. Studio Management
is responsible for maintaining these items in stock.
Time Limits for On-site Storage of Hazardous Wastes
1. Full hazardous wastes must be transported to the hazardous waste storage area located near the Ceramics Studio as soon as
practicable after being filled.
2.
Ontario regulations limit on-site storage of hazardous wastes to 90 days. To comply with this requirement, OCAD University has
hazardous waste pick-ups from RPR Environmental occur every 90 days.
Reporting On-Site Storage In Excess of 90 Days
1. In the event that a hazardous waste has been stored on-site for more than 90 days, the following applies, the user responsible
for producing the waste must advise the Office of Safety and Risk Management.
2.
The Office of Safety and Risk Management must file a notice with the Ministry of Environmental Regional Director using the
form below (form available from the Ministry of Environment web site).
3.
The completed notice form must be retained on-file by the Office of Safety and Risk Management for a period of at least two
years from the date that the waste is removed from the site.
Packing and Manifesting Hazardous Wastes for Pick-up
1. Prior to pick-up, it is necessary for (1) hazardous wastes in the lock-up area near the Ceramics Studio to be packed into labeled
shipping containers, and (2) a manifest to be prepared.
2.
Campus Services is responsible for removing containers of hazardous waste from the lock-up storage cabinets, placing the same
classes of wastes into suitable designated shipping containers for the waste, and labeling the container with the shipping class
information. The following provides information for this purpose.
