IN CASE OF A CHEMICAL EMERGENCY

 

If You Are Told to SHELTER-IN-PLACE...

You should protect yourself inside your house or some other building. This is a good action to take if there is a short release or small amount of hazardous material in the air. If your children are in school, they will be protected by school officials. Take these steps to protect yourself.

Go inside if you are outside. When inside, stay inside until your radio or TV says you can leave safely. This is most likely to be no more than a few hours, rather than a day or more.

Close all doors and windows. Taping cracks or openings will provide more protection.

Turn off heating, cooling or ventilation systems.

Do not use fireplaces. Put out the fire. Close the dampers.

Listen to your local radio or TV stations for further instructions:

Radio - Our E.A.S. Stations are WWL 870 AM/WLMG 101.9 FM

TV Cable Systems - In addition to Audio Override, the Government Access Channels are TimeWarner Cable 15, RTC cable 15 and U-Verse Cable 99.

TV Broadcast Channels - 4-WWL, 6-WDSU, 8-WVUE, 26-WGNO

 If You Are Told to PROTECT YOUR BREATHING...

You should cover your nose and mouth with a damp handkerchief or other cloth to protect your breathing.  Fold the cloth several times.

Close the windows and doors if you are in a building or a car.

Turn off heating, cooling or ventilation systems.

Risk Management Planning (RMP) is a federal regulation from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) which became effective in 1999. RMP’s goal is to keep the community informed of risks by requiring companies to provide the public with information regarding hazards and risks. Communication is a key aspect of this regulation. Preventing accidental chemical releases and minimizing the effects of accidents is our main focus in protecting residents and the environment. There are several layers of safety and environmental protection in place to assure our plants are safe and risk is kept to a minimum.

Five R’s summarize our basic practices:
REMOVE risk by changing, modifying or improving work processes. 
REMOVE risk by minimizing the amount of chemicals stored on-site.
REMOVE risk by substituting listed chemicals with non-hazardous or less hazardous chemicals.
REMOVE risk by continually training in areas of safety and environment.
RESPOND to risk by training to properly handle chemicals. In the event of a release, we can respond quickly and effectively.

 

RMP Regulated Substances Handled by Participating St. John Parish Companies

Please see individual company brochures for additional information.

Bayou Steel Group and Evonik Corporation do not handle any of the RMPlisted chemicals.
Therefore, these two companies are not required to report to EPA and DEQ. However, both
companies monitor all chemicals handled at the respective facilities and have safety
programs in place.
