Description "Magancide: Five containers of the herbicide Magancide were observed in the Metropolitan shed. At the time of the inspection they were not all full, but up to five full containers could be present early in the season. The active ingredient in the magnacide is Acrolein. Acrolein is classified by OSHA as a ""highly hazardous chemical,"" and any quantity more than 150 pounds triggers the requirements of the process safety management of highly hazardous chemicals regulation. This regulation requires a written program for the handling and use of these chemicals. Acrolean is also known as 2-Propenal, and quantities of 500 pounds or more of this chemical triggers the EPA requirements under the Emergency Planning Community Right to Know Act. This regulation has reporting requirements to the local and state emergency response organizations. A copy of the reporting requirements are enclosed. Because Magnacide is classified as an inhalation poison, DOT regulations require that when it is being transported, the vehicle operator have a Commercial Drivers License with the proper endorsement. Magancide is classified as highly flammable and should be stored in a well-ventilated, noncombustible building with explosion proof wiring."
