Living in a hazmat world
To provide vital info on hazmats, ASSE has published, "Hazardous Materials Safety Information Guide," which aims to educate the public on hazardous materials â€” what they are, who to call in an emergency, how local emergency planning committees work, and much more.
For round-the-clock reporting of an incident, the U.S. National Response Center is open 24/7 and is where all chemical, radiological and etiological discharges into the environment are reported by calling 1-800-424-8802.
For a copy of the ASSE brochure contact ASSE customer service at 847-699-2929 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for item number G017. The brochure can be downloaded for free off of ASSE's web site at http://www.asse.org/newsroom.
