Re: CHO at museum asks for our help
A really nice CHO at an LA museum found that the conservation staff has plans to transport chemicals from the museum to offsite facilities where they would perform treatment on objects. The kits would vary depending on the treatment needed, but most of the time the kits would contain acetone, isopropanol, toluene, xylene, acetic acid, mineral spirits. The CHO is not familiar with the DOT and other regulations for transporting/labeling chemicals. But he ran across Title 49 Part 173.4 Small quantities for highway and rail outlines and realized he could have some issues with this plan.
This is not an area I'm strong in and usually suggest a consultant. If any of you have this area nailed and could help, or if you know of a reasonable consultant to refer this to, the CHO can be reached at:
Chemical Hygiene Officer
Los Angeles County Museum of Art
5905 Wilshire Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90036
Thanks to all, Monona
