Those pesky peroxides…

Publication date: Available online 24 December 2013
Source:Journal of Chemical Health and Safety

Author(s): Dawn Mason

Sensitive to different degrees of shock, heat and friction, peroxides may cause unexpected explosions and thus, are arguably one of the most hazardous classes of chemicals that are routinely handled in the laboratory. In addition, species that are known to form peroxides are often routinely handled in a number of industries by workers with varying levels of experience who may, or may not, fully understand the implications of working with such substances. This manuscript discusses examples of the risks involved in working with peroxide formers, conditions that can cause the formation of peroxides, and proper handling of peroxide formers.

From beaker to bucket: The safe scale-up of organic electrolyte materials

Publication date: Available online 14 December 2013

Author(s): Trevor Dzwiniel , Krzysztof Pupek , Gregory Krumdick

Argonne's Advanced Battery Materials Synthesis and Manufacturing R&D Program provide a critical junction that bridges the gap between the initial discovery and commercialization of new materials. The goal of the facility is to develop safe, scalable, and economic processes to produce kilogram quantities of material needed for industrial evaluation. This presentation will describe the main administrative and engineering measures undertaken during scale-up to assure safe transition from discovery to kilo scale syntheses of organic electrolyte materials for advanced lithium batteries.

Development of a policy to improve oversight of extremely hazardous chemicals

Publication date: Available online 4 December 2013
Source:Journal of Chemical Health and Safety

Author(s): Ben Owens

At the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) the use of radioactive materials and biological agents in laboratory research requires approval by the institutional radiation safety committee and biosafety committee, respectively. Investigators who want to use hazardous chemicals, however, do not have to obtain approval. This disparity in institutional oversight of different classes of hazardous materials is a result of more stringent regulatory and research funding requirements rather than the hazards posed by the materials themselves. Recognizing the potential for severe incidents involving highly reactive chemicals and other extremely hazardous chemicals, development of a policy for review of these chemicals was initiated. Development of this policy involved establishing the scope and inclusion criteria, consideration of the effect on laboratory research productivity, diplomacy, and compromise. Development of this policy in its current draft format is described.

Case study: Lead monitoring prevents huge compensation claim

Publication date: Available online 7 November 2013
Source:Journal of Chemical Health and Safety

Author(s): Neal Langerman

A young woman was diagnosed with ovarian cancer and her treating physician raised the possibility that over-exposure to lead (dust and/or fume) at work could be causative. This case study documents how five years of industrial hygiene activity which guided an aggressive lead management program provided the data which convinced both the employee and her physician that this was not a workplace incurred illness.
