ACCIDENTAL RELEASE PREVENTION AND EMERGENCY RESPONSE POLICIES

We at Evans Harvey Corporation, L.L.C. (Evans Harvey) are committed to employee, public, and environmental safety. This commitment is inherent to our accidental release prevention program which covers areas such as design, installation, operating procedures, maintenance, and employee training associated with the processes at our facility. It is our policy to implement appropriate controls to prevent possible releases of regulated substances. If such a release does occur, our trained emergency response personnel are at hand to control and mitigate the effects of the release.

DESCRIPTION OF THE STATIONARY SOURCE AND REGULATED SUBSTANCES

The Evans Harvey facility's primary activity is repackaging chemicals. Evans Harvey either repackages or warehouses 7 RMP-regulated substances at our facility. Evans Harvey receives the regulated substances primarily in bulk and packages the products for customer distribution. Drummed products are then warehoused or shipped depending on customer specifications. The inventories of RMP-regulated substances at the facility are dependent upon customer orders, and not all regulated substances are present on site at a given time.
The RMP Substances are listed below

RMP Toxic Substances CAS No. Maximum Quantity (pounds)

Cyclohexylamine 108-91-8 470,000
Acrylonitrile 107-13-1 86,000

RMP Flammable Substanc
es

Isopropylamine 75-31-0 560,000
Trimethylamine 75-50-3 63,000
Dimethylamine 124-40-3 33,000
Ethylamine 75-04-7 530,000
2-Methyl-1-butene 563-46-2 260,000

OFFSITE CONSEQUENCE ANALYSIS

Evans Harvey is the operator of a stationary source that has more than the threshold quantity of RMP-regulated substances in a process and is, therefore, subject to the RMP rule (40 CFR 68). The RMP regulated process at the Evans Harvey facility is subject to the Program 3 requirements of the RMP rule. The Program Level 3 requirements apply because the process is subject to OSHAs process safety management (PSM) standard (29 CFR 1910.119).

In performing the offsite consequence analysis of the worst-case and alternative release scenarios, Evans Harvey used EPA's RMP*Comp software.

Removed Section>>>>>

GENERAL ACCIDENTAL RELEASE PREVENTION PROGRAM AND CHEMICAL-SPECIFIC PREVENTION STEPS

Evans Harvey has taken the necessary steps to comply with the accidental release prevention requirements of the RMP rule (40 CFR 68). A portion of the repackaging and warehouse processes at our facility are subject to OSHAs PSM standard (29 CFR 1910.119), and Evans Harvey is also subject to EPCRA Section 302 notification requirements. The following sections briefly describe the elements of the release prevention program that is in place at our stationary source.

Process Safety Information

Evans Harvey maintains a record of safety information that describes the chemical hazards, operating parameters, and equipment designs associated with all processes.

Process Hazard Analysis

Our facility conducts studies to ensure that hazards associated with our processes are identified and controlled efficiently. The checklist method is used to carry out our process hazard analyses. The studies are undertaken by a team of personnel with experience in engineering and process operations and are revalidated on a regular b
asis or when there is a change in the process. Any findings related to the hazard analysis are addressed in a timely manner.

Operating Procedures

For the purposes of safely conducting activities within our covered processes, Evans Harvey maintains written standard operating procedures. These procedures address various modes of operation such as initial startup, normal operations, temporary operations, emergency shutdown, emergency operations, normal shutdown, and startup after maintenance. The information is regularly reviewed and is readily accessible to operators involved in the processes.

Training

Evans Harvey has a training program in place to ensure that employees who are operating processes are competent in the operating procedures associated with those processes. Procedural and Safety training is continuous.

Mechanical Integrity

Evans Harvey carries out maintenance checks on process equipment to ensure proper operations. Process equipment examined by these checks includes pressure valves, hoses, relief systems, emergency shutdown systems, controls, and weighing devices. Maintenance operations are carried out by qualified personnel. Any equipment deficiencies identified by the maintenance checks are corrected in a timely manner.

Management of Change

Written procedures are in place at Evans Harvey to manage changes in chemicals being packaged, technology, equipment, and procedures. Process operators, maintenance personnel, or any other employee whose job tasks are affected by a modification in process conditions are promptly made aware of and offered training to deal with the modification.

Pre-startup Reviews

Pre-startup reviews related to new processes and to modifications in established processes are conducted as needed at Evans Harvey. These reviews are conducted to confirm that construction, equipment, operating, and maintenance procedures are suitable for safe startup prior to placing equipment into operation.

Compliance Audits

Evans
Harvey will conduct audits on a regular basis to ensure that the facility remains in compliance with the RMP rule requirements. These audits will be carried out at least every 3 years, and any corrective actions required as a result of the audits will be undertaken promptly.

Incident Investigation

Evans Harvey promptly investigates any incident that has resulted, or could have reasonably resulted, in a catastrophic release of a regulated substance. These investigations are undertaken to identify the situation leading to the incident as well as any corrective actions to prevent the release from recurring. All reports are retained for a minimum of 5 years.

Employee Participation

Evans Harvey believes that process safety management and accident prevention are a team effort. Company employees are encouraged to express their views concerning accident prevention issues and to recommend improvements. In addition, our employees have access to all information created as part of the facility's implementation of the RMP rule, including information resulting from process hazard analyses.


FIVE-YEAR ACCIDENT HISTORY

There have been no onsite or offsite releases of an RMP regulated material in the past 5 years at the Evans Harvey facility.

EMERGENCY PLANNING AND RESPONSE

Evans Harvey has a written emergency response plan to deal with accidental releases of hazardous materials. The plan includes all aspects of emergency response, including adequate first aid and medical treatment, evacuations, as well as notification of local emergency response agencies and the public. Evans has a very close relationship with its local Fire Dept, who often visits the site train its responders.

In addition, the plan is updated to reflect any pertinent changes taking place within our processes that would require a modified emergency response.
