Safe Handling of Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate and Toluene Diisocyanate are two training programs designed to inform employers and employees of the potential hazards associated with the handling of MDI and TDI and best practices to minimize potential risks. The program also discusses best practices for drum or intermediate bulk container handling, unloading MDI/TDI from tank containers (isotainers), cargo tank trailers, and rail tank cars, as well as emergency response procedures and proper disposal.
This video presentation is only one part of a comprehensive training program on the safe handling of MDI and TDI. For optimum results, this presentation should be a part of your hazard communication program, supplemented with hands-on exercises, and reporting procedures, along with evacuation drills in case of an accidental spill or leak. Any company specific or facility specific policies and procedures relating to the handling of MDI and TDI should be discussed when presenting this program.
All individuals who handle MDI or TDI, and its derivatives — especially those who are involved in the handling of drums or intermediate bulk containers, and the unloading of tank containers (isotainers), cargo tank trailers, and rail tank cars — and their supervisors or team leaders will benefit from viewing this program.
The Safe Handling of Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate and Toluene Diisocyanate program has been divided into seven parts so that training can be specifically targeted to the container in which MDI/TDI is received. Depending on what type of transfers workers are being trained for, all employees will view both Part One–Hazard Communication and Part Six–Emergency Response. Then choose one or more of the other parts based on how MDI/TDI is received at your facility.
