Pre-Incident Planning: The Most Important Step in HAZMAT Preparedness
This course provides an in-depth exploration of the consensus standard, NFPA 1620, Pre-Incident Planning and its use in HAZMAT emergency preparedness. Presenters will provide participants with a pre-incident plan template based on NFPA 1620 and discuss each of the elements. The session will also highlight planning for an incident command structure or unified command structure as part of pre-incident preparation. When Disaster Strikes: OS&H Professional Support During the Hurricane Harvey Response
On August 25, 2017, the Category 4 Hurricane Harvey made landfall over Texas. Hurricane Harvey was declared a Major Disaster. Emergency Support Functions (ESFs) under the National Response Framework were activated. Response and recovery operations have inherent hazards associated with them including uncharacterized and uncontrolled work sites. Safety and Occupational Health (SOH) professionals need to be experienced in a wide range of issues, but also highly adaptive to meet the needs of the situation. For this session, IHs will discuss their roles, responsibilities, and lessons learned supporting ESF 6 - Temporary Housing, ESF 9 - Search and Rescue, and ESF 10 - Oil and Hazardous Materials Response. IH Perspective in Emergency Response to a Process Plant Fire
This presentation will review how industrial hygienists are useful in the 3 stages of emergency response (prepare, respond, recover) by using a real world example of a process plant fire. Information will show how an IH can aid: 1) preparation for an incident by developing/reviewing facility response plans, reviewing legislation, training, etc.; 2) response during an incident with decision tools, sampling options and training requirements; and 3) recovery through hazardous materials handling training, assessment tools and protocols. Emergency Preparedness and Response After Crisis and Catastrophe
During a mock subway system decontamination (decon) study, personal chlorine exposure was monitored during a Level A entry into the exclusion zone. Chlorine exposures were observed up to 5 times the IDLH value of 10 ppm. While this decon method is very efficacious, this study demonstrates the health hazards involved with manual spray decon using pH-amended bleach in a subway tunnel if used after a biological terror event.
