Engineering Controls Adequate ventilation. Spare tank for emergency        transfer Dike wall, emergency scrubber etc. Leak, spill handling If the leak in piping, shut off the Chlorine supply. If the leak is from cylinders, position the cylinder so that leak will be in gaseous phase. Contain Liquid spills. Do not pour water on leak containers. Waste disposal Nuetralise the waste Chlorine or spills      with alkaline solutions such as Caustic  Soda, Soda ash or slaked lime etc. EMERGENCY I FIRST – AID MEASURES Fire extinguishment    Non flammable gas[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text] Handling Methods Seamless steel, seamless copper flxible piping are used for handling liquid Chlorine Personal protective equipment Self contained Breathing Apparatus Gas filters  Protective Clothing.
