Abstract
The objectives of this study where to describe a proper chemical storage for materials in Giad factories, to reduce the risk of fire and incidence and to implement a proper chemical storage plant by developing software program for Giad Aluminum factory, Giad furniture and medical equipments factory. The methodology of the study compliance with going over the material safety data sheets (MSDS), classifying the materials depend on workplace hazardous materials information system (WHMIS), determining the compatibility and incompatibility between the materials via (WHMIS) compatibility table and creating a software program. As a result of the study the materials of furniture and medical equipments factory are classified to six basic groups (toxic, oxidizing, corrosive, flammable, dangerously reactive and non hazardous materials), and the materials of aluminum factory are classified to three basic groups (toxic, corrosive and non hazardous materials). The compatibility and incompatibility between the materials was determined as follow: Flammables with dangerous reactive or corrosives or oxidizing are highly incompatible, toxins with flammables or corrosives or oxidizing are incompatible, non hazardous materials are compatible with all mentioned groups. Then software program was executed. The study recommended creating complete (MSDS) for each chemical, segregation of chemicals by classes with in appropriate cabinets, using the personal protective equipments (PPE), and applying training on safety habits for employees and labors.
