Buildings, rooms and spaces containing hazardous materials shall be identified by hazard warning signs in accordance with the IFC 2009, as amended, Section 2703.5. Labeling - An NFPA 704 compliant Hazard Placard is required for each pedestrian entry door rooms containing hazardous materials in excess of the exempt amounts (this door could be interior or exterior) and all such doors shall be included. The minimum size of the Hazard Placard shall be 15" by 15". This requirement is subject to verification at the time of the Hazardous materials Inspection prior to signing the Fire Final. Individual containers, cartons or packages shall be conspicuously marked or labeled in an approved manner. Rooms or cabinets containing com-pressed gases shall be conspicuously labeled: COMPRESSED GAS.
FYIMSDS Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for all hazardous materials shall be either readily available on the premises as a paper copy, or where approved, shall be permitted to be readily retrievable by electronic access. Approved electronic access shall be as follows: 1. Media shall be USB Flash Drive. 2. Format shall be Microsoft Word 2000 or newer docu-ment, PDF, or other approved format.

Isolating incompatible materials in storage by a noncombustible partition extending not less than 18 inches (457 mm) above and to the sides of the stored material. 3. Storing liquid and solid materials in hazardous ma-terial storage cabinets. 4. Storing compressed gases in gas cabinets or exhausted enclosures in accordance with Sections Materials that are incompatible shall not be stored within the same cabinet or exhausted enclosure. ***ATTENTION: MSDS for these materials indicate incompatibilities with certain materials/chemicals. Pay close attention to the Oxidizers --- separate from other materials. *** Recommend approved storage cabinets and secondary containment pallets for the storage of on site materials.

FYIChlorofluorocarbon Control Program (CFCs)/Ozone Depleting Compounds Colorado's Chlorofluorocarbon Program's mission is to reduce emissions of ozone depleting compounds, chlorofluorocarbons and hydrofluorocarbons through an inspection and compliance program. The program is self-supporting through fees and it regulates air conditioning and refrigeration sources throughout the state of Colorado. The program was authorized by the state legislature in 1992 and the working statute can be found at 25-7-105(11)(a-h), C.R.S. The Chlorofluorocarbon Program is administered by the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, Air Pollution Control Division, Stationary Sources Program. Air Quality Control Regulation No. 15, "Regulation to Control Emissions of Ozone Depleting Compounds," details the program's requirements for businesses and individuals utilizing ozone depleting compounds. Program Operations Colorado's Chlorofluorocarbon Program contracts with seven local health departments which perform inspections, respond to complaints and initiate compliance actions in their respective counties. Training and program oversite are conducted by staff members of the state's Chlorofluorocarbon Program in the Air Pollution Control Division. Inspections, compliance and monitoring for the non-contracted portion of the state are performed by the Division's chlorofluorocarbon staff. The Chlorofluorocarbon Program regularly inspects stationary and automotive sources for compliance and responds to general complaints regarding ozone depleting compounds. A Chlorofluorocarbon HOTLINE is available to leave messages, report violations or to request assistance in either the state or federal chlorofluorocarbon programs. The number for the state Chlorofluorocarbon HOTLINE is 303-692-3200. All calls are returned within 24 hours by a staff member. Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) information and material may be obtained from the Division staff or any of the participating local agencies listed in the next two sections. # Regulation No. 15: Control of Emission of Ozone Depleting Compounds
