Lehigh Valley Safety Committee

Lehigh Valley Safety Committee

Lehigh Valley Safety CommitteeIn October 2005, an alliance was formed with the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) to foster safer and more healthful Lehigh Valley workplaces. This alliance formed the basis of the Lehigh Valley Safety Committee (LVSC), a safety and health collaboration between private employers, non-profit organizations, healthcare, academia and government.

Through monthly presentations, quarterly events and annual expos, the LVSC provides health and safety education. All events are free and all industries and individuals are welcome to attend events and participate on the committee. 

Please note: parking can be challenging for meetings held at the Fowler Campus.  Please refer to the parking map (PDF) for assistance.

Oct. 13 – Implementing a System to Separate Incompatible Chemicals in Storage
Brent Altemose, Ph.D., CIH, CSP
Many serious events and even catastrophes have occurred when incompatible chemicals have been inappropriately stored and/or mixed together, but chemical incompatibilities can be complex to identify and understand. Safety Data Sheets are often woefully lacking in appropriate guidance on the separation of chemicals in storage. Regulatory guidance and available references on the topic are helpful, but require professional expertise to interpret. This presentation will discuss industry best practices for solutions, including some tips from our experience with actual implementation on sites. Hazard identification for all chemicals on site, labeling of containers, designation and identification of storage areas, and employee training are key elements of a successful program that will be described.
