Hazardous Material Storage Glossary

Glossary and hazardous materials storage lexicon from PROTECTO

Here are the most important terms and abbreviations relating to the storage of hazardous substances and occupational safety.

Active storage
The storage room is also used to open containers and to transfer or fill them.
This applies in particular to filling from original containers and mixing of ready-to-use preparations

ArbSchG
Occupational Safety Act

ArbStättV
Workplace Ordinance

ATEX
ATEX is a French abbreviation (AT mosphère EX plosible). It comprises two European directives for explosion protection. The directive for manufacturers 94/9/EC (ATEX95) contains requirements for equipment operated in environments with explosive atmospheres. For operators, Directive 1999/92/EC (ATEX137) contains safety requirements for the personnel concerned.

BetrSichV
Ordinance on safety and health protection in the provision of work equipment and its use at work, on safety in the operation of systems requiring monitoring and on the organisation of occupational health and safety.

BG
Employer's Liability Insurance Association

BGVR
BGVR is the abbreviation for "Berufsgenossenschaftliches Vorschriften- und Regelwerk".

BImSchG
Federal Immission Control Act

ChemG
The Chemicals Act (ChemG) contains, on the one hand, regulations concerning the notification of new substances as well as notifications of new and old substances, and, on the other hand, provisions concerning precautionary and protective measures of a general and specific nature.

DlBt
The DlBt (Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik) is the only German approval body for construction products and types of construction.

EN 13501-2
The European standard EN 13501 is a classification of construction products and types of construction with regard to their reaction to fire. Part 2: Classification with results from fire resistance tests.

EN 14470
EN 14470 is a European standard divided into two parts for "fire resistant storage cabinets".

Flammable substances
According to the EC Directive, "flammable" means "liquid substances and preparations with a low F|ammable Flashpoint."

Fire resistance
The fire resistance (also fire resistance) of a building component is measured by the length of time a component retains its function in the event of a fire.

Flash point
The flash point of a substance is the lowest temperature at which an ignitable vapor-air mixture can form over a substance

Hazardous substances
Dangerous substances are defined by Directive 67/548/EEC for the classification, packaging and labelling of dangerous substances.

Hazardous substances
Materials, operating materials or auxiliary materials that have a particular hazard potential.
Hazardous substances are dangerous substances and preparations that have certain properties such as toxic, corrosive or irritant.

Hazardous substance minimization
One way of limiting storage quantities is to regularly check stocks for expired or no longer required containers. Small quantities typical of the trade can be disposed of via regional trade hazardous waste collections.

GefStoffV
Ordinance on Protection against Hazardous Substances

Commercial pollutant collection
Regional collection points where businesses can drop off small quantities of hazardous waste without much administrative effort.

IBC
Intermediate Bulk Containers are used for transport and storage of liquid and free-flowing substances. They are used in the production of chemicals, food, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.

KTC
Cubic Tank Container

LöRüRL
Fire water retention guideline

Organic peroxides
When storing organic peroxides, some regulations and special features must be observed. Here, the different hazard classes (OP I to OP IV) are decisive for various equipment components such as electrical equipment ex-proof in different temperature classes, installation of pressure relief or bursting discs or catch basins for liquid peroxides. Some peroxides also require temperature-controlled or air-conditioned storage. In addition, organic peroxides may also be subject to explosives regulations. The complex issue of organic peroxide storage should be planned and executed on a case-by-case and customer-specific basis.

Passive storage
During storage, the containers are always closed. When in use, they are removed from storage.

PSA
Personal protective equipment against harmful effects on the body.

PSM
Common abbreviation for plant protection products. A PPP store therefore refers to a store of crop protection agents.

Expert
An expert is someone who, on the basis of his or her professional training and experience, has sufficient knowledge in the field of the respective facility or system and is familiar with the relevant state occupational health and safety regulations, accident prevention regulations, guidelines and generally accepted rules of technology to such an extent that he or she can assess the safe working condition of the respective facility or system.

Separate storage area
It is recommended to create a suitable separate storage area - either in the general warehouse or as a separate storage room - for the storage of the remaining hazardous substances.

StawaR
The Steel Sump Guideline (StawaR) is the generally accepted rule of technology for steel sumps with a volume of up to 1000 litres.

TRB
Technical rules for pressure vessels

TRbF
Technical rules for flammable liquids
Al = extremely flammable or highly flammable
AlI = flammable

TRbF
Technical rules for flammable liquids

TRG
Technical rules for gases

TRGS
Technical rules for hazardous substances

VAwS
Ordinance on installations for handling substances hazardous to water

VbF
Ordinance on the storage of flammable liquids

Substances hazardous to water
Substances hazardous to water in the sense of the Water Resources Act (WHG) are solid, liquid and gaseous substances, in particular acids, alkalis, mineral oils, liquid as well as organic compounds, poisons, which are capable of permanently adversely changing the physical, chemical or biological properties of the water.

WGK
Water hazard class
WGK 1 = slightly hazardous to water
WGK 2 = hazardous to water
WGK 3 = highly hazardous to water

WHG
Water Resources Act

Ignition temperature
Temperature where flammable substance ignites itself in the presence of air solely due to its temperature - i.e. without an ignition source such as an ignition spark.
