SPILLAGE SCHEDULE Victor


GASES (NON-FLAMMABLE, NON-TOXIC)

General comments Measures should be taken to prevent leaking gases from penetrating into any other part of the ship. Bear in mind that some gases are heavier than air or may otherwise accumulate in lower or non-ventilated parts of the ship. Particular attention should be taken in order to prevent gases drifting into occupied areas of the ship, e.g. living quarters, machinery spaces, working areas. Leaking gas may be extremely cold.
Wear suitable protective clothing and self-contained breathing apparatus (suffocation hazard).
Let spilt liquified gas evaporate: When in contact with cold liquified gases, most materials become brittle and are likely to break without warning. Avoid all contact, even when wearing protective clothing. If practicable, protect ship's superstructure with copious quantities of water. Do not direct water jet onto the spill.
Spillage on deck Packages (small spillage) Let gas dissipate. Keep clear.
Cargo Transport Units (large spillage) Let gas dissipate.
Spilt liquified gas: Use water jets from as far as practicable to accelerate evaporation, not directing them straight onto the spill.
Keep clear of evolving gases.
Spillage under deck Packages (small spillage) Provide adequate ventilation.
Stop leak if practicable. Otherwise, let gas evaporate. Keep clear.
Check atmosphere before entering space (suffocation hazard). Do not enter space without self-contained breathing apparatus.
Cargo Transport Units (large spillage) Provide adequate ventilation.
Stop leak if practicable. Otherwise, let gas evaporate. Keep clear.
Spilt liquified gas: Use water jets from as far as practicable to accelerate evaporation, not directing them straight onto the spill.
Check atmosphere before entering space (suffocation hazard). Do not enter space without self-contained breathing apparatus.
Special cases:
UN 2990, UN 3072 No suffocation hazard. Collect articles and repack.
UN 3502 A toxic liquid, paste or powder may be expelled if the package is ruptured. Also consult SPILLAGE SCHEDULE S-A.
UN 3503 A corrosive liquid, paste or powder may be expelled if the package is ruptured. Also consult SPILLAGE SCHEDULES S-C or S-G as appropriate.
