Protect Your Skin.
Anyone, any time can become af-
flicted with dermatitis. It could be
the housewife using strong deter-
gents or cleaners, the mechanic in
his shop, the plant employee or the
tourist at the beach. When the skin
comes in contact with chemicals or
is exposed to ultraviolet light (sun
rays), it becomes red and irritated -
inflamed. This inflammation is called

Some persons may be more sensi-
tive than others to certain products,
but the main reason of dermatitis is
when chemical substances or sunrays
act on the unprotected skin. Especial-
ly when the natural barrier the na-
tural skin oils are removed from the
skin by solvents, harsh soaps or too
firm brushing. Therefore, dirt, grease,
etc. should not be removed from the
skin with solvents gasoline or ke-
rosene but with mild soap and
plenty of water, making sure that all
the soap or cleanser has been remo-
ved from the skin before drying it.

People with natural dry skin are
even more susceptible to all types of
irritants. They are recommended to
use a protective cream and protective
clothing. However, everybody with
normal skin is advised not to use skin
ointments for a prolonged time, un-
less advised by his physician, be-
cause skin ointments themselves con-
tain chemicals which in due time
could also cause irritations. Espe-
cially, cortisone ointments should not
be used for an extended time as they
could alter the skin and cause persis-
tent dermatitis.

Another way to prevent dermatitis
is by making sure that the person
handling chemical substances wears
clean work clothes. These clothes
should be washed frequently. Once
an employee finishes his work, he

. Prevent Dermatitis
should change his work clothes right
away, after taking a shower or clean-
ing up.

At Lago there is a variety of protec-
tive equipment available to assure
that an employee is protected from
dermatitis. The Medical Department
recommends a good assortment of
creams, lotions, soaps, etc. to prevent
irritation to the skin for people who
might be exposed to chemical sub-
stances or who have sensitive skin.

But having protective equipment
and good skin products is not
enough. The employee must USE
them, accordingly. He must know the

Attention For Those Who Come
In Contact With Solvents
1. An approved cleanser has been
provided for cleansing. It is advis-
able to avoid harsh soaps.
2. Because of your contact with sol-
vents and the degreasing action ol
these agents, the following routine
is recommended to help retain the
normal suppleness of the skin.
This routine can be carried out at
a. Soak your hands in lukewarm
water for 20 minutes.
b. Do not dry them; while they
are wet, anoint your hands with
white Vaseline or a vegetable
fat (such as Crisco).
c. Allow the ointment to remain
on your hands for 30 minutes
and remove with a towel.
d. This may be repeated once or
twice daily.
e. This routine will help to pre-
vent dryness, cracking and fis-
suring of your skin.

have replaced all other similar-type
units in the refinery. With the excep-

which are used specifically in plan-

be used throughout the refinery in po-

emergency rescue operations.

Field replacement of the former
equipment began this month. Of the
85 new MSA Air Mask Pressure De-
mand units acquired, sixteen will be
used exclusively by the Lago Volun-

To familiarize all users with the
new 30-minute replacement units and
new maintenance and control proce-
dures, a series of eight-hour training
sessions were conducted at the Fire

conduct the intensive course, provi-
ding special sessions for Instrument
personnel on the maintenance and re-
pairs of the new MSA equipment.

Course instructors Richard Aiken,

Recently, new jumbo Safety Poster
Boards were installed at Gates 2 and
3. The new safety poster boards fea-
ture a red revolving flashing light at
the top which as part of Lago's Safe-
ty program, will be turned on for 24
hours only when a serious near-miss,
major fire or disabling accident is ex-
perienced in the refinery.
Obviously, the aim is that through
the concerted efforts and high safety
awareness of all employees these
lights will not have to be activated!
Nevertheless, should a serious inci-
dent occur, the lights will be activa-
ted and a preliminary accident bulle-
tin will be issued to keep all employ-
ees informed. In addition, informa-

tion about the incident will be put on
Dial 7. So, when you see these red
lights flashing, you should dial 7 to
find out what's happening.
The final outcome of the investiga-
tion which will be initiated by the de-
partment involved, will be published
and will be used as a topic for a 5-
minute safety talk which will be sche-
duled throughout the organization du-
ring the same week of the incident.
With this new, improved communi-
cation, it is expected that the safety
awareness of all employees working
at Lago will be greatly improved. This
is an essential part of Lago's 1980
Safety Program.
