Washington, DC – The American Chemistry Council’s Center for the Polyurethanes Industry (CPI) has released updated versions of its Safe Handling of MDI and TDI video series. The two training programmes inform employers and employees of the potential hazards in transporting the materials, and best practices to minimise risk.
The videos were first created in the early 2000s. The revised series includes updated regulatory information, and best practices for drum and IBC handling, plus unloading from larger tanks. It also includes information about PPE, emergency response procedures, and waste disposal.
‘MDI and TDI are key building blocks,’ said Lee Salamone, senior director at CPI. ‘Shipments of these materials are often made via highway and rail, and this educational video series reinforces the industry’s commitment to fostering product health and safety.’
