hazardous materials and industrial safety in disaster management 1

1. Please “inventory” your personal workspace (employment) to a distance of five (5) miles. List all identified Hazardous Materials in this region (requires a referenced definition of Hazardous Materials, cite your source. Your local community right to know/Emergency Planning Committee can supplement your personal “windshield search” for materials in their customary locations.Finally, perform a “Hazard Analysis” rating the most likely hazard material to create an incident, the most toxic to humans, most unique in response, and most persistent to the environment.

Locate the SDS for each and post.One additional document with Hazard data/response recommendations for each substance is desirable.

2. Through local and electronic research, identify the responsible government agency charged with preparedness, protection, and mitigation of a major Region-wide hazardous material release in your locale.Post the contact information, area of responsibility (air, land, water, population).Write a brief report of the agency’s resources for preparedness and mitigation.
