When you are faced with a chemical emergency scenario, you are faced with something that could quickly become far worse, threatening not only your facility but the surrounding community. While no one may know for certain when an emergency will occur, you can prepare for it by having a written emergency response plan. In fact, OSHA requires all employers who deal with hazardous chemicals to have such a plan. This Video On Demand training explains what this plan entails, proper communication procedures, as well as how to best prepare yourself for a future chemical emergency.
While every situation is unique, many hazardous materials emergencies follow certain patterns; the plan helps workers to recognize these patterns. This ability to recognize patterns is needed both for the incident commander as well as the HAZMAT team working under him or her. The incident commander has the most authority and power over the situation as it develops, but without reliable information from the HAZMAT team, he/she will not be able to properly handle the emergency. Fully learn these individuals' roles, as well as the proper PPE to wear during an emergency, with this video.
There are also a number of safe work practices to follow as an emergency unfolds. This lesson instructs you on what these practices are, as well as how to implement them.
Hazardous materials emergencies require specific response efforts, which is why one must be prepared for these types of emergency situations. With the use of the emergency response plan as well as the information presented here, you will be better prepared to act before, during, and after an emergency, thus ensuring the safety of all those involved.
