N.J. Admin. Code § 7:1E-2.11 - Housekeeping and maintenance

Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 7, April 4, 2022

(a) Hazardous substances shall be kept in containers suitable for their storage or processing at all times except when being transferred between containers. Containers shall be compatible with the substances stored therein and resistant to chemical attack by the substances. Hazardous substances shall be kept protected from the elements and the possibility of leakage.
(b) Tanks, pipes, valves, glands, drums or other equipment leaking hazardous substances shall be promptly repaired, replaced or taken out of use following detection of a leak, unless provision is made to capture and contain leaking hazardous substances in a drip pan or other appropriate containment device. If such provision is made, the leaking item shall be repaired, replaced or taken out of use within 15 days after the leak is detected unless the shutdown of a process unit is necessary. A leak shall be repaired at the earliest period in which either the process is not in operation or the particular unit is out of service, whichever occurs first.
(c) Cleanup of all leaks or discharges of hazardous substances shall begin promptly upon detection. Loose quantities of hazardous substances shall not be allowed to persist on grounds, floors, walls or equipment, or any other places within the facility.
(d) The facility shall keep on hand, in convenient locations, adequate quantities of sorbent materials, chemical neutralizing agents or other materials as needed, sufficient to contain and clean up those leaks or discharges that facility personnel will respond to, as described in the DCR plan in accordance with 7:1E-4.3(b)7.
(e) The facility shall maintain an adequate supply of protective safety equipment, such as chemically resistant coveralls, boots, or respiratory protection, in convenient locations for use by any personnel who are required to clean up leaked or discharged hazardous substances. Where protective safety equipment is required by any regulation of the Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration, compliance with such regulation shall be deemed to fulfill this requirement.
(f) Secondary containment or diversion systems shall be maintained in good repair, free of accumulated debris, and free of cracks through which hazardous substances could be discharged.
