Have the contents of an entire hazardous materials and WMD first responder course at your fingertips when you need it most ... at an incident. This handy field guide covers most of the operational level first responder competencies identified in NFPA 472 and 473, with guidelines to help you recognize and safely manage any hazmat incident or WMD event. It’s the perfect companion to the Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG). The information is organized into fourteen chapters: 1. The “Quick Reference Guide” contains a concise overview of your responsibilities as a first responder. 2. “Recognizing and Responding to a Hazmat/WMD Incident” has detailed explanations and guidelines on each of the tasks listed in Chapter 1. 3. “Labels, Placards, and Other Marking Systems” provides key points on each of the hazard classes and information on various other marking systems. 4. “Container Recognition” provides clues about the types of products found in various containers and how these containers behave in an emergency. Look at both the general information about the type of container (nonbulk package, cargo tank, rail car, etc.) and specific information about the particular container(s) in question. 5. “Assessing the Hazards” contains information on how hazardous materials cause harm, toxicological terms and exposure limits, properties of flammable liquids, chemical and physical properties, and guidelines for dealing with special hazmat situations. 6. “Medical Management of Hazmat Exposures” has information on the risk of secondary contamination, patient decon, triage, health effects of hazardous materials commonly encountered, EMS treatment protocols, and medical support of hazmat response personnel. 7. “Introduction to Terrorism” provides information on distinguishing a terrorist event from an accident and distinguishing between chemical and biological warfare agents. 8. “Explosives Incidents” has information on how to recognize common explosives and initiation devices and guidelines on what to do upon discovery of a device or after detonation of an explosive. 9. “Chemical Warfare Agents” has general information on how to deal with incidents involving chemical warfare agents, as well as more detailed information on nerve agents, blister agents, blood agents, choking agents, and riot control agents. 10. “Biological Warfare Agents” provides general information on dealing with incidents involving biological warfare agents, as well as more detailed information on specific biological agents. 11. “Nuclear Events” has information on dealing with incidents (intentional or accidental) involving radioactive materials. 12. “Tactical Considerations” provides more information on defensive options and the use of foam. 13. “Additional Considerations” includes guidelines on dealing with the media, minimizing liability, developing protective action messages, preserving evidence, and dealing with children. 14. “Resources for Information and Assistance” provides information on various agencies that can help you manage a hazmat incident or terrorist event. Five previous editions were released in print form. The book was updated for this 2014 eBook edition.

"This book should be a required reference on the laboratory's safety shelf as no where else is so much useful information available in a single volume." ?Inside Laboratory Management, on the Second Edition "...a portable reference on reactive substances to guide all personnel...in charge of the handling, storage, and transportation of chemical materials." ?Journal of the American Chemical Society, on the Second Edition The authoritative resource on dangerous chemical interactions now enlarged, revised, and even more useful. The term "incompatibilities" describes a wide range of chemical reactions that produce undesirable results in noncontrolled situations: the generation of toxic gases, fire, explosions, corrosive activity, polymerization, ruptured containers, creation of more dangerous compounds, and the like. A portable and easy-to-use reference on reactive substances commonly found in commerce, the Wiley Guide to Chemical Incompatibilities, Third Edition compiles hard-to-find data on over 11,000 chemical compounds, providing chemists, technicians, and engineers a thorough, lightning-quick resource to use during experimental preparation and in the event of an emergency. More than a revision of the previous edition, this Third Edition has been rewritten and expanded to broaden coverage and improve its usefulness. It contains nearly 9,000 chemical incompatibility profiles and nearly 250 new entries, covering flammability, violent and explosive binary reactions, incompatibilities, and reactions that may result from physical change. Alphabetical organization provides concise incompatibility profiles for thousands of commonly used commercial chemicals, allowing readers to look up a given substance and instantly learn whether it is incompatible with common materials, other chemical substances, structural materials, or personal protective equipment. New for the Third Edition: Chemicals that have the potential to cause disasters Chemical formulas and autoignition temperatures More flash points, as well as molecular formulas, lower and upper explosive limits, autoignition temperatures, and NFPA®-type (Red) numerical fire codes Safety reminders All entries keyed by CAS numbers to eliminate possible confusion among synonyms Spanish-, French-, and German-language entries for international use Revised glossary helps users who may not be chemists with general chemical terms With thousands of new entries and easy-to-use organization, the Third Edition of the Wiley Guide to Chemical Incompatibilities remains a handy resource for all safety, first-response, and plant management professionals responsible for the handling, storage, and conveyance of chemical materials.

Field technicians and emergency response personnel are often faced with the dangers of flammable, combustible, and chemically unstable materials. Although there are numerous procedures set forth by regulatory agencies like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) for effectively and safely dealing with such environmental hazards, up until now there has been no single resource for training in this area. Based on the author's twenty-plus years of field experience, Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Manual is a comprehensive text that covers the complete curriculum requirements set forth by OSHA and HazWOPER. Highly accessible and broad in focus, the book is equally useful as a technical resource for training, a hands-on reference for field operations, and a textbook for environmental courses in a variety of areas. Coverage includes:Methods recommended by professional societies and regulatory agencies including the National Fire Protection Association, OSHA, EPA, and NIOSHPractical examples and assignments in each chapter to supplement the text and enhance usefulness to students.
