What is the hazard of putting more space between yourself and the hazard?
That another driver will squeeze into that space, but that is less hazardous than getting too close to the first hazard to begin with.

When waste is able to cause significant harm to people, property or the environment, it is considered to be "hazardous waste" and is treated with greater care than regular old garbage.
It is anything that has the potential to cause injury, loss oflife, damage to property or environment.
A Hazardous Waste is any material that is subject to the EPA's Hazardous Waste Manifest specified in 40CFR262. A Hazardous Substance - is any material listed as having Reportable Quantities Pursuant to Section 311 of the Clean Water Act (40CFR117.3) A Hazardous Material is any material or obje…ct that meets the any of the definitions of Hazard Classes in 49 CFR or that is listed in the Hazardous Materials Table at 49CFR172.101 (MORE)
They cause harm to life,property and environment. In places such as construction work sites, hazards are probable causes of risks to health and safety of all workers that is why departments such as OSHA was created. There are also different kinds of hazards such as environmental hazards - businesses… uses environmental management systems nowadays to ensure that they don't do that much damage to the environment whenever they have projects.

Something that can cause a hazard. Something that is dangerous and likely to cause harm..
A risk or hazard is a possible danger. Hazards are obstacles that could cause one harm or misfortune. A road hazard, such as a sharp turn, is dangerous if you are not aware of it. A risk is a chance that one takes in a plan. "You risk going outside on a cloudy day without taking an umbrella or rain …coat." A risk is a possible threat or danger that may or may not happen.

A toxic chemical is one that can poison you. It os one kind of hazardous chemical. Other kinds include: . flammable liquid . flammable solid . corrosive . compressed gas / aerosol
basically, the difference is whatever the regulator of choice decides it is. it's fairly arbitrary. it may be based on corrosivity, or the presence of various contaminants like chromium or cyanide above some limit of concentration, or any number of other things.
a hazard is a condition that can impair mission accoomplishment and a risk is a hazard that has been quantified by how much it affects the mission
An hazard is when a thing is proved to hurt you, a risk when there is a possibility that you might get hurt.
It is dangerous to use any electrical device for purposes it in not designed for. In the case of a hot plate they are not designed to be on for extended periods of time. With the open element there is the danger of it becoming a source for a fire and dangerous burns. Suggestion, buy a plug in basebo…ard heater, they are not that expensive and much more safer to use around the home. (MORE)
A hazard is a material or circumstance that might cause injury, illness, or property damage. A hazard is any material, event or condition that will produce undesired results unexpectedly. While there are many ways to categorize hazards, one way is to call them . biological, . chemical, . physi…cal, . environmental, or . psychological . (MORE)
Anything that can hold an electric charge can be hazardous if the positive and negative terminals aren't protected against shorting. Secondly, if damaged in any way (usually a dent for the typical cylinder or rectangle batteries) the anode and cathode may come in direct contact and possibly create a…n explosive pressure release, fire, etc. This is true for nicd, nimh, Lion, Lithium Primary, lead acid, wet cell, dry cell, and any other configurations I can think of (I'm sure there's some exception somewhere). Improper storage such as in a damp area, or hot area can escalate corrosion and shorts can develop with fire, explosive pressure release, and dangerous gas emissions as possible results depending upon battery type. With that said, batteries are approved for transportation by passing a varying set of tests usually including pressure tests, drop tests, shorting tests, and many more either completed by, or for the manufacturer. A consumer can legally trust what the manufacturer claims, as long as the manufacturer actually makes the correct claims, like storage instructions, installation instructions, handling warnings, transportation restrictions. A no name great deal on egobayazon may not make any claims about their safety at all, so beware! these no name replacement batteries (cell phone, laptop, etc) have been the cause of numerous emergencies globally. So, to answer your question directly, all batteries can be hazardous, and should be considered so unless the manufacturers instructions have been followed and the battery is in good (has power) condition...and pick a trustworthy manufacturer.

In short, Moral hazard is a hazard dealing with the difference between right and wrong while a moral hazards is a hazard dealing with people's attitudes. . At length, in the world of insurance, conditions that increase the frequency and severity of a loss are considered hazards. For example, placin…g a magazine rack beside your fireplace is a hazard. It heightens the chance of a fire to your house. . There are four hazard categories according to the CPCU study of Risk Management and Insurance. They are Moral, Morale, Physical and Legal. . Examples - . Moral hazard - conditions resulting from a weakness of human character (when someone should know the difference between right and wrong), such as embezzlement. . Morale hazard - conditions resulting from a person's indifferent attitude toward a loss when a property of exposure is insured, such as failing to lock the doors or roll up the windows of your car or leaving valuables in plain sight in your car . . .especially during the holiday season.

OSHA requires monitoring for hazardous atmospheres in enclosed spaces before you enter them and while you are in them (if there is an y chance of a hazardous atmosphere developing). They require this to prevent hazardous atmospheres from killing people.
Why is using your sense of smell to identify a hazardous material putting yourself at risk of exposure?
The sense of smell is unreliable as an indicator of exposure. Some hazardous materials have no smell. Some can be smelled only at concentrations well above levels that are unacceptable for exposure. Others can be smelled at extremely low levels where there is no hazard, so relying on smell for thos…e materials would result in inappropriate alarm. Finally, the nose can become fatigued, so that you cease to smell something that you could at first readily detect. As a result, you may believe the agent has gone away, when it is still there but you can no longer smell it. (MORE)
Hazard is when something can lead to a crisis or something bad, but has not yet happened. (you might come across signs saying beware, hazardous site). Disaster is when something bad has happened and is just a word that we use to describe the after effect of whatever took place. Some peoples 'disas…ters' can be as minor as having a bad hair day to something like the world is going to end!!!!! (MORE)
Hazardous waste is hazardous because it can cause damage to people, property, or the environment if not handled and disposed of properly.
\nIf it is stronger than 0.5 molar (Mdm^-3), 2% per mass, it should be labbeled with the caustic symbol: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a1/GHS-pictogram-acid.svg.
There is a deal of overlap between hygiene and safety in general and therefore between hygiene and safety hazards. Broadly, a safety hazard is one for which the result is promptly noticeable and readily identifiable as to the proximate cause. For example, falling off a ladder, and the resulting inj…uries, are readily seen to be connected. With a hygiene hazard, the exposure to the hazard and the resulting injury may be separated in time and the cause and effect may not be as readily apparent. For example, exposure to benzene vapor can result in liver cancer, but it takes a study of many people over a long time to clearly demonstrate that. (MORE)
Peril is cause of loss whereas hazard is condition which arises the chances of loss.
safety hazard: causes external harm (broken leg, sprained wrist) health hazard: causes disease. EX. Safety hazard is like not smoking around certain chemical carrying equipment (ie storage tanks) health hazard is not smoking in restaurants or other public areas.
A hazard usually refers to a specific impediment that has the potential to cause danger. Danger is a more generalised term, covering a range of hazards.
Pretty much everything about a volcano is deadly, but especially the ash, dust, and smoke that can suffocate you, and the extreme heat. I'm not saying that the lava itself isn't deadly, but there are other things about a volcano that can kill you. My advice: stay away from them!
A hazard is anything that can cause harm. A risk is the chance that what you're doing will cause harm.
Hazards of space travel as currently practiced by humans include: . high acceleration . weightlessness . vacuum - lack of air pressure . lack of oxygen . radiation exposure . calcium loss from the bones . fire . explosion
A hazard in an unavoidable occurance. A risk is only the possibility of incurring misfortune or loss
If you stack something together, say plastic bowls, while they're wet, they could take quite a while to dry. Mold and mildew can grow with that trapped moisture. Many people are very sensitive to molds and this could cause health problems.
It depends on the liquid or gas. However, certain gases, such as chlorine gas, can be very hazardous to your health, especially if inhaled because they can severely harm your mucous membranes. Overall, I'd say that gases are the most hazardous, because they can be inhaled.
Hazard is something that can pose a threat to someone's life,health or property. Outrage is an act of violence or cruelty.
its a problem when you loose your shoe. its a hazard to ride your bike in the street.
A hazard is a chance of being injured or harmed and outrage is an act of extreme violence or viciousness.
A risk is doing something that has a chance of a bad development. A hazard is something that may cause that bad development.
an Hazard is any obstacle, event,practice that can cause a risk. a risk results from an hazard. for tha hazard, people are aware of it and precautions have been taken to prevent it from causing an accidentor incident. but for a danger, no precaution has been taken
These words are slightly different in meaning but unfortunately the words themselves have a number of closely related meanings which make it difficult to pin down the difference. The following attempts at explaining the difference may explain. 1. A hazard is a dangerous object or situation. The da…nger may exist even without the intervention of human beings. In a dry year, a forest may be a fire hazard even if there are no people to start the fire. A risk, on the other hand, is the possibility of a bad outcome. In making choices, we must assess the risks, or the possibilities of bad outcomes, and weigh them against the possibility of good outcomes. If a course of action involves getting too close to a hazard, the risk may be too great to make the action worthwhile. If there is a store on fire, the fire is a hazard which makes the risk of being burned if you go in greater than the possibility of being able to steal the cash register. 2. Ok, a hazard is something that could go wrong. Leaving a cigarette burning next to curtains is a hazard, drinking next to electrical equipment is a hazard. A risk is normally something you do, climbing onto your roof on a windy day is a risk, starting a financial business during the credit crunch is a risk. Here "risk" means "a choice with a strong possibility of a bad outcome." 3. In AF ORM, it's hazards are things that can happen while risks tell you how bad it will be if they happen. Here "hazards" are the bad consequences and "risks" are the likelihood and seriousness of the consequences. A hazard is a condition that can impair mission accomplishment and a risk is a hazard that has been quantified by how much it affects the mission. 4. They can mean the same thing. A risk is taking a chance or a gamble on something; with the chance of losing what you are gambling. In Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, a message says, "Who chooseth me must give and hazard all he hath." In this sentence "hazard" means "risk" (MORE)
hazard is anything that has the potential to cause harm to people, equipment and the environment, while risk is consequence and likelihood that hazard has the potential to harm to people, equipment and environment.
The first and most obvious hazard is the lack of oxygen which could cause an astronaut without suitable protective clothing to suffocate. In fact space is practically a vacuum (there is virtually nothing there at all), this means that unprotected astronauts can suffer from "decompression sickness…". This is because at earth's surface there is a significant pressure acting on everything from the weight of the air in the atmosphere. On earth we don't normally notice this as we are used to it. All the fluid and dissolved gasses in our bodies is broadly at the same pressure as the atmosphere and so the two cancel each other out. However in space where there is no atmosphere pushing down or around an astronaut, the pessure is not balanced and without protective clothing, dissolved gasses in the blood and other tissues will come out of solution forming bubbles which would be extremely painful and rapidly prove fatal and would cause significant swelling. On earth we are protected from significant amounts of solar radiation by the atmosphere and the Earth's magnetic field. In space no such protection exits and so astronauts face significantly increased exposure to all types of radiation. There is also the increased risk of meteoroids (small metallic or silicate clasts ranging from sand grain size upwards) that travel at very high velocities causing damage to space vehicles (or in extremis killing astronauts) because there is no atmosphere to burn up (due to air resistance and friction) these debris.

What are the differences between hazardous and non hazardous waste and the relationship of this to potential contamination?
Hazardous wastes are materials that are to be discarded (i.e. are wastes) but can be a danger to people or to the environment and meet the definition based on the identity of the material or on test results. If hazardous wastes are mixed with the nonhazardous wastes, the result is a hazardous waste.… A non-hazardous waste is something that is to be discarded (i.e is a waste) but does not meet the definition of a hazardous waste. (MORE)
The term "hazardous" is used to refer to any material, condition, or situation that could cause injury, illness, environmental damage, death, or property damage. The term "non-hazardous" is used to describe a material, condition or situation that is thought not to be able to cause injury, illness…, environmental damage, death, or property damage. (MORE)
Hazards are things that can be dangers, for example sticking a metal fork into an electrical outlet. (which is a stupid idea, and I don't recommend it.)
They can cause environmental changes but they are also 280 million dollars and taking 5-15 years to get to space.
Some of the common hazards of confined spaces include: vapor poisoning asphyxiation engulfment And thanks for OSHA's Confined spaces training, all of those hazards can be avoided.

1. House structural damage 2. Physical/Bodily harm 3. Vehicle damage Way on how to protect yourself from these hazards: live in an area where earthquakes are uncommon and when they occur they are weak in power and potential. Also have good car insurance, health insurance, and house insurance.
Capable of igniting and burning is a combustible gas. Any compressed gas meeting the requirements for lower flammability limit, flammability limit range, flame projection,etc. All flammable substances are surely combustible, but all combustible substances are not essentially flammable. .
There is usually a hazard label used in chemistry that is used with hazardous materials which I believe label the "Flammability", "Toxicity", "Corrosiveness", and "Fume Hazard" along with additional labeling if the container is frail, or if the explosive can be triggered in some other way. Keep in …mind that packages containing volatile materials such as aerosol cans, paint cans, gasoline, gunpowder etc. are NOT allowed in the US postage system. They even give you specific warnings for suspicious packages. Additionally, if you find any kind of package that is unusual and might be a sign of an explosive DO NOT TAMPER WITH IT. Call a local authority and have them make sure that the package is not explosive. (MORE)
Not all salts have sodium in them. So a salinity hazard could mean different salts.
Other than some indication of them being on (either all interiorturn signal indicators lighting up specifically or a red trianglelight on the dash), nothing.
Hazards are dangers. Driving on an icy road is consideredhazardous, because there is a danger of sliding and crashing.
A hazard is a dangerous place or situation (that hasn't takenplace), eg, live electric wires on a power pole. A natural disaster is a catastrophe that occurs as a result ofnature, eg, tsunamis, earthquakes and bush fires.
