The Chlorine Institute has developed several checklists to help evaluate the capability of customers to safely unload and otherwise handle chlorine or sodium hypochlorite at the facility where the product is used.
These checklists are intended only to provide limited information to assist both the suppliers of chlorine and their customers. The checklists emphasize key chlorine specific recommendations as developed by the Chlorine Institute and are intended to supplement Institute publications, not replace them. They are not meant to incorporate regulatory or other requirements that may be applicable at each customer facility.
The Chlorine Institute, through its Board of Directors and member companies supplying chlorine, believes that there is no acceptable level of chlorine incidents. Thus, the Institute believes that all members handling chlorine must continually strive to reduce chlorine incidents, in their operations as well as the operations of their customers, with the ultimate goal of eliminating all such incidents. Only through continuous improvement in chlorine safety performance and prudent attention to security can the industry and all participating in it hope to achieve long-term success.
The Institute believes that continuous improvement in the safe and secure handling and use of chlorine is not only the right thing to do, but is vitally necessary to allow the industry to remain sustainable. The Institute also believes that the utilization of the appropriate checklist will assist the user in achieving a safer operation and will better enable the supplier to determine the capabilities of the chlorine customer to safety and securely operate the chlorine use facilities.
Institute technical publications may be purchased from the bookstore section of the website. The Institute and its members are pleased to advise that all pamphlets referenced in the checklists may be downloaded at no cost to you.
The Chlorine Institute has prepared a letter that describes the reasons that we developed the checklists as well as why the Institute has made their use or comparable ones a condition of CI membership.
