Acetone is transferred to the main building through piping. The room has a portable ABC fire extinguisher on the wall. Storage Room A is a 20’ X 20’ storage room inside the main building. The plastic totes and glass bottles are stored on commercial racks on two separate walls inside the room. The aboveground storage tank (AST) is located in a corner of the room. The room has a concrete floor with CMU block walls and no drainage. There is a diked area around the AST that can hold up to 1,500 gallons of a liquid. The room has three portable ABC fire extinguishers spread throughout the room. Storage Room B is a 10’ X 10’ storage room in the main building.

Discuss which hazard you believe represents the greatest health risk to workers in the area. Discuss which hazard you believe represents the greatest environmental hazard.
