Preface

Epoxy and isocyanates possess extraordinary properties in terms of strengths and durability, which is why they are used in many contexts in different products and production processes. However, they belong to the category of hazardous substances and materials, for which there are a number of legal regulations and safety rules. To be able to work with epoxy and isocyanates professionally in a safe and responsible way that protects the safety of yourself and your surroundings, a two-day course (AMU (Labour Market Training Course) course 47942) is required. This is a legal requirement.

This book is specifically targeted for the abovementioned course, and therefore the book carries the same title as the training course: Personal Safety when Working with Epoxy and Isocyanates. 

This book covers:

  • What is epoxy and isocyanates, and where are they used?
  • Which health risks are associated with the substances?
  • The legislation and regulation of the area, including Danish Working Environment Authority guidelines.
  • Rules regarding labelling of products – and how to understand this information.
  • Personal protective equipment and its use, including how to correctly put on and remove the equipment.
  • How to protect your surroundings.
  • Carrying out the work and waste management.
  • First aid.
  • Safety culture.

 

Preface 16th

A lot has happened since the 15th edition of this book was released in 2014. Some of the relevant legislation, regulations and guidelines have been changed and the book has been updated accordingly. However, we have deliberately toned down the references to specific legislation, and instead made endnote references for those who want to read further about the specific law or guideline.

The idea behind this is that students should stay focused on what matters to the safety aspect of the work and not be disturbed by paragraphs and numbers.

Deadlines for various transitional arrangements have been passed, which means that the book, for example, no longer describes the old orange hazard pictograms, or the R and S statements.

An important change since the 15th edition is that the action-oriented learning objectives for the course from The Educational Secretariat for Industry have been tightened and clarified. The objectives and intentions of the new course are dealt with in Chapter 1. One of the points is that there should be more focus on practical skills.

The book provides the theoretical basis to be used in the course, while the practical exercises are organized and carried out at the various course locations.

As a new feature, we have included various tests and suggestions for practical exercises in the chapters where this is relevant. “Test yourself exercises” give students an opportunity to check if they have

understood the most important points from the course. The practical exercises should support the focus on the practical skills. Both tests/exercises and practical exercises are intended as a catalog of  deas, which the individual teacher can choose from to complement his or her own instruction material in consideration of the time frame and the specific group of students.

The publisher is very pleased to receive suggestions from the book’s users regarding tests and practical exercises that would be useful to include in future editions of this book.

In addition to being a useful reference book, which is nice to have at hand, even after the course is over, it is now also a personal workbook. It is therefore a good idea if the student writes their name on, for example, the inside of the book cover.

The publisher would like to thank everyone who contributed to this book, and especially Ejnar Als Brix, TECHCOLLEGE, who undertook the sizeable task of giving the book a much needed update.
