USPS is reminding postal facilities to properly manage equipment containing refrigerants

USPS is reminding postal facilities to properly manage equipment containing refrigerants, in accordance with regulatory requirements.

Refrigerant-containing equipment includes chillers, air conditioners, fire suppression systems, drinking fountains, refrigerators and freezers.

Never vent or otherwise release refrigerants into the atmosphere.

Refrigerants, refrigerant-containing equipment and cylinders must be disposed of properly.

Other refrigerant management requirements include:

• Maintaining required documentation

• Investigating refrigerant leaks and repairing leaking equipment

• Managing refrigerant storage cylinders properly

• Completing required training

• Obtaining Environmental Protection Agency technician certification

Training, handling, record-keeping and disposal requirements apply to both postal employees and contractors performing maintenance on USPS equipment that contains refrigerants.
