Self-reactive substances can undergo auto-polymerization. For example: they can react with themselves under suitable conditions. Usually exposure to heat causes runaway self-reaction that can result in an explosion. Self-heating substances usually absorb oxygen from the air and undergo slow oxidation. The heat produced from this slow oxidation can cause a decomposition and fire or explosion. This training module provides information about the hazards associated with self-reactive substances; procedures for handling an incident and the protective measures that should be followed when using or storing these substances. Information is also provided on protecting self-heating substances from sunlight and other heat sources and precautions to follow when handling the disposal of self-heating substances. Information about substances which on contact with water emit flammable gases or cause an exothermic reaction hazard are also included.

Gases can be converted to liquid at low temperatures and high pressure. Gases in pressurized cylinders are in the form of liquid and if allowed to escape can expand into gases 200 times their volume. If subjected to heat, gas cylinders can explode. Also, cryogenic liquids are extremely cold and cause instant freezing of body parts on exposure. This training session defines gases under pressure categorized as: (a) compressed, (b) liquefied, (c) dissolved and (d) refrigerated liquefied gases. The module includes information about the dangers of explosion, cryogenic burns, frost, asphyxiation along and the specialized Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to use when handling gases under pressure. First aid procedures for substances that cause cryogenic exposure of skin are also covered.

Some chemicals produce symptoms of exposure soon after they enter the body and are classified as acutely toxic substances. Chemicals can be extremely toxic and can be lethal on inhalation, ingestion, skin contact, skin absorption or even eye contact; therefore may require special engineering controls such as fume hoods or Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as respirators to work safely. Also many of the toxic chemicals can cause cancer or birth defects. This GHS training module defines the categories of acutely toxic substances based on the degree of their toxicity and the specialized PPE requirements for handling a spill or fire involving an acutely toxic substance. First aid procedures for exposures involving ingestion, inhalation and skin or eye contact are provided. Included in the module are the handling procedures for toxic chemicals that are also: (a) flammable, (b) corrosive, (c) flammable and corrosive, (d) water-reactive, (e) oxidizers and (f) self-heating.

Pharmaceutical drugs in tablet or capsule form are safe for employees; however, drugs that need to be reconstituted often get aerosolized during preparation or administration to the patient and expose the employees. Cytotoxic drugs used for the treatment of cancer are often extremely toxic and cause cancer themselves. Similarly hazardous drugs such as new anti-viral drugs are extremely toxic. Both cytotoxic and hazardous drugs require following a very strict standard of procedure for handling and use of special Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). This training session provides information about the hazards associated with pharmaceutical drugs during preparation and administration to patients and the protective measures that should be taken to prevent these exposures from adversely affecting their health.

Radioactive substances emit radiation and cause mutation and cancer to exposed employees. Most radioactive substances used in hospitals are low level radiation producing isotopes and are therefore only moderately hazardous. Nevertheless, radioisotopes can have very long half-lives and require proper handling during use, storage and disposal. The dangers associated with radioactive isotopes used in healthcare facilities are identified during this training session. Also included are the procedures to follow when treating an individual contaminated with a radioactive substance. This program identifies the role played by the Radiation Authority regarding spill control and decontamination procedures.

Biohazardous substances are capable of causing infection or disease on exposure. Most of these substances are obtained either from human or animal fluids or body parts or contain micro-organisms in substances like vaccines. Many biohazardous substances are also present in diagnostic lab products. Although products are tested for HIV and other blood-borne micro-organisms, no test is 100% accurate and therefore all biohazardous substances must be handled and disposed of carefully. This session defines the types of bio-hazardous substances that healthcare employees are commonly exposed to during routine work. Important information about the proper handling of containers is outlined as well as the first aid procedures to follow when handling a person contaminated with a bio-hazardous substance.

Chemicals or products not expected to cause serious physical, chemical or health hazards are included in this category. Many of the products contain hazardous substances that are supposed to remain inside the container and not expose the employee. Some products such as alloys are also included in this category, because they are safe and produce toxic and corrosive fumes during the welding process only. Many products contain chemicals and hazardous substances that are identified as general use chemicals and articles, such as batteries and printer cartridges. This module provides information about the safe use and handling of these products and what to do in the event of a fire, spill or injury.

Oxidizers are substances that can cause fire or promote fire by usually producing oxygen gas, though other decomposition products can often do the same. Oxidizers are extremely dangerous and can ignite combustible materials such as rags, paper towels and hydrocarbon fuels. Strong oxidizers are so unstable and reactive that they are often used as components of explosives. In addition, oxidizing gases are often shipped in pressurized containers and can explode if heated.
