A Complete Training Solution for Hazardous Materials Technicians and Incident Commanders! In 1982, the authors Mike Hildebrand and Greg Noll, along with Jimmy Yvorra, first introduced the concept of the Eight-Step Process© for managing hazardous materials incidents when their highly regarded manual, Hazardous Materials: Managing the Incident was published. Now in its Fourth Edition, this text is widely used by fire fighters, hazmat teams, bomb squads, industrial emergency response teams, and other emergency responders who may manage unplanned hazardous materials incidents. As a result of changing government regulations and consensus standards, as well as the need for terrorism response training, Mr. Noll and Mr. Hildebrand have modified and refined their process of managing hazmat incidents and added enhanced content, tips, case studies, and detailed charts and tables. The Fourth Edition contains comprehensive content covering: • Hazard assessment and risk evaluation • Identifying the problem and implementing the response plan • Hazardous materials properties and effects • Identifying and coordinating resources • Decontamination procedures • The Eight-Step Process© • Personal protective equipment selection • Procedures for terminating the incident The Fourth Edition’s dynamic features include: • Knowledge and Skills Objectives correlated to the 2013 Edition of NFPA 472, Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents • ProBoard Assessment Methodology Matrices for the Hazardous Materials Technician and Hazardous Materials Incident Commander levels • Correlation matrix to the National Fire Academy’s Fire and Emergency Services Higher Education (FESHE) Bachelor’s (Non- Core) Managerial Issues in Hazardous Materials Course Objectives • Realistic, detailed case studies • Practical, step-by-step skill drills • Important hazardous materials technician and safety tips

Hazardous waste is a waste with properties that make it dangerous or potentially harmful to human health or the environment. Hazardous waste generally exhibits one or more of these characteristics: ignitability, corrosivity, reactivity or toxicity. The universe of hazardous wastes is large and diverse. Hazardous wastes can be liquids, solids, contained gases, or sludges. They can be the by-products of manufacturing processes or simply discarded commercial products, like cleaning fluids or pesticides. One major type is radioactive waste. This book brings together the latest research in this diverse field.

A fire fighter's ability to recognize an incident involving hazardous materials is critical. They must possess the knowledge required to identify the presence of hazardous materials and weapons of mass destruction (WMD), and have an understanding of what their role is within the response plan. Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations will provide fire fighters and first responders with these skills and enable them to keep themselves and others safe while mitigating these potentially deadly incidents. Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations is the center of an integrated teaching and learning system that combines groundbreaking content with dynamic new features to support instructors and to help prepare students for the job. The text meets and exceeds the requirements for Fire Fighter I and II certification and satisfies the core competencies for operations level responders including the eight mission-specific responsibilities for first responders within the 2008 Edition of NFPA 472, Standard for Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents. Additionally, the material presented also exceeds the hazardous materials response requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations provides in-depth coverage of: the properties and effects of hazardous materials and WMDs; how to calculate potential danger and initiate a response plan; selection, use, advantages, and disadvantages of personal protective equipment; performing mass and technical decontamination; performing evidence preservation and sampling; performing product control. Performing air monitoring and sampling; performing victim rescue and recovery; and responding to illicit laboratory incidents. Listen to a Podcast with Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations author Rob Schnepp to learn more about this training program!

The most comprehensive and convenient guide to date on the management, storage, and disposal of hazardous materials and waste. For the professional faced with making sense of the reams of governmental regulations surrounding waste handling and disposal from the EPA, OSHA, and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, untangling the legal jargon can be as challenging as managing these materials and wastes. Explaining how these complex regulations interrelate and when they apply, the first edition of Hazardous Materials and Hazardous Waste Management became an instant reference staple–offering practical, comprehensive guidance on current definitions of hazardous wastes and materials as well as their use, management, treatment, storage, and disposal. Extensively revised and expanded with many new topics, this new Second Edition now covers additional areas such as water quality management, pollution prevention, process safety management, and transportation of hazardous materials and waste. Retaining its predecessor′s practical topical range, this edition is invaluable for the chemical and environmental engineer as well as the hazardous materials technician, with essential information on: ∗ Hazardous materials management in the workplace, from personal monitoring and protection to safety and administration. ∗ Treatment and disposal technologies. ∗ Environmental contamination assessment and management, including groundwater and soil, air quality, water quality, and pollution prevention. ∗ Process safety management, hazard assessment, emergency response, and incident handling. The first book to provide coherent treatment of both hazardous materials and waste management in one volume, the Second Edition of Hazardous Materials and Hazardous Waste Management secures this reference′s well–earned position in the professional′s library as a source of solid, timely technical information.

It is well known that fluorescent light bulbs and consumer appliances such as televisions, computers, and monitors contain mercury, dangerous chemicals, and other harmful components. The existing literature on hazardous materials addresses the risks attached to specific materials and emphasizes compliance and personal protective equipment (PPE)—but not the life cycle management of the materials that represent the hazards. A logistics treatment of the subject is needed to understand the underlying supply chain management principles and apply solutions to reduce overall use of hazardous materials. Hazardous Material (HAZMAT) Life Cycle Management: Corporate, Community and Organizational Planning and Preparedness is organized into two thematic sections. Section I defines and classifies hazardous materials and covers the U.S. regulatory framework and standards governing the transport and use of such materials. Section II examines institutional and organizational program elements and provides guidelines for developing these programs to reduce liability and risk while lowering point-source pollution and total hazardous waste production. The logistics approach to hazardous materials yields exponential benefits in costs and the reduction or elimination of such materials. It limits organizational liability and, at the same time, reduces the costs associated with hazardous waste management and disposal. This book serves as an integrative reference offering a better understanding of hazardous materials use, life cycle management, consumption, and waste reduction at a holistic, strategic level.
