An excerpt from ISNetworld® RAVS®* Safety plan Butadiene Awareness Management Program

     …          It is understood that our employees’ exposure to Butadiene may be minimal or non-existent, however all jobsites shall be considered. Butadiene may be present at refineries and petrochemical plants. Butadiene is used in the production of styrene-butadiene rubber and polybutadiene rubber for the tire industry. Other uses include copolymer latexes for carpet backing and paper coating, as well as resins and polymers for pipes and automobile and appliance parts. It is also used as an intermediate in the production of such chemicals as fungicides. [1]

Butadiene can pose short and long term health hazards from exposure. Breathing very high levels of butadiene for a short time can cause central nervous system effects, blurred vision, nausea, fatigue, headache, decreased blood pressure and pulse rate, and unconsciousness. There are no recorded cases of accidental exposures at high levels that have caused death in humans, but this could occur. Breathing lower levels of butadiene may cause irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat. Skin contact with liquefied butadiene can cause irritation and frostbite. Butadiene is a carcinogen. [3]

Engineering controls and work practices.

Replace with Company Name shall institute engineering controls and work practices to reduce and limit employee exposure to Butadiene. Wherever the feasible engineering controls and work practices which can be instituted are not sufficient to reduce employee exposure,
