MANAGEMENT

DISPOSAL



Over the last twenty five years we have developed the ability to manage our client’s most problematic materials.

We are an end disposal option for those materials not handled by traditional waste management companies, which now includes shock sensitive and explosives, ammunition, industrial pyrotechnics (flares and rockets) and bio-hazardous material.

SITE REMEDIATION



Site remediation is the inevitable result of a hazardous materials incident. Our experience in remedial operations extends across all industry sectors and ranges in scope from the seemingly insignificant residential oil spill to train derailments, chemical plant rehabilitation, abandoned chemical waste sites and industrial complex remediation.

BISAC: Reference / Handbooks & Manuals

This text is intended to assist Chemical Health and Safety Professionals in preparing for their profession and for the appropriate Certification examinations to validate their training and expertise in the many different areas required to protect workers dealing with hazardous materials in the laboratory, semiworks or chemical production industries and in a research or university setting. This is also intended to be a useful reference to all of the areas that the Chemical Health and Safety Professional needs to protect the employees who rely on them to maintain a safe working environment. The topics covered include everything from chemical, biological and radiological hazards to the many different Federal, State and International Regulations that require specific actions wherever hazardous materials are present. This text covers everything from Risk Assessment to Personal Protective Equipment to Audits to the required documentation that the Chemical Health and Safety Professional is required to maintain.

Response to Clandestine Laboratories, Terrorism and Weapons of Mass Destruction: StreetSmart(R) Chemistry

Response to Hazardous Materials incidents has changed over the years. If one was a First Responder 20-30 years ago, one had to be concerned about transportation accidents involving hazardous cargoes, fires and hazardous materials and wastes at fixed sites. While many of us were trained in the basics of Weapons of Mass Destruction, it was generally theory and few expected to have to actually respond to an incident involving these materials. Responses to Clandestine Laboratories were not as common and terrorism was something that happened elsewhere and not in the United States. Today the world is a very different place: 

  • The drug epidemic especially for methamphetamine has virtually overwhelmed the Law Enforcement and Response Community. First Responders, whether Law, Fire or EMS personnel frequently encounter “Meth Labs” even in “nice neighborhoods” or in rural settings. “Harder” drugs and synthetic opioid labs are being run by gangs in many states and television shows and popular music about drug makers, dealers and “kingpins” are common. 
  • Clandestine laboratories related to “terrorist” activities are now common throughout the world and there are numerous examples of “homemade” toxins and explosives being made here in the United States. It is possible to buy books discussing the “kitchen counter” preparation of explosives, toxic agents and chemical warfare agents openly on the internet. Anyone with an internet account can access step-by-step instructions and watch videos showing exactly how to construct bombs, etc. to attack unsuspecting populations. Organizations such as al Qaeda or the “Islamic State” are actively pushing to give this type information to the widest possible audience. 
  • Although there have been relatively few successful chemical or biological attacks in the US, the use of chemicals in association with improvised explosive devices is common elsewhere in the world and there have been a number of relatively unsuccessful attempts here ranging from improvised explosive devices found attached to chemical canisters to explosive devices planted on trucks and railway cars. Few people in the Emergency Planning Community believe that this unfortunate trend will not strike here soon. 

This book is intended to prepare the Emergency Response Community to respond safely to these new threats. We all hope that the next “call” won’t be to respond to one of the problems discussed in this book. Preparing to make that Response is what this book is about.

Investigators who evaluate incidents at sites where Hazardous Materials are present face unique hazards. Whether the investigation is for arson, for insurance purposes after an incident, for litigation or to identify the Root Causes of the incident as part of Process Safety Management, the presence of Hazardous Materials adds an additional dimension to the investigation; How does one respond safely to gather the information needed and at the same time meet all of the legal and regulatory requirements for working in a hazardous environment? The Forensic Investigator’s Safety Handbook provides the information needed to operate in a contaminated environment ranging from the types of Personal Protective Equipment required for the specific hazards present to the forms required to document that the appropriate Federal and State-regulations have been complied with correctly. This book is basically in two parts-a text section explaining how to work safely in a contaminated environment and a series of appendices containing examples of the forms required to document that the work met all federal and state safety requirements. The forms provided have been used in over 1000 incidents.

This book is a guide to Hazardous Materials Emergency Response. It combines a fundamental Chemistry text with specific information on the hazards associated with each class of molecules and recommendations on the safe response to incidents involving these materials including recommended Personal Protective Equipment, Monitoring, Decontamination and Cleanup. The topics covered include chemical theory applied to each type of molecule and discussions of toxicity, flammability, reactivity and environmental issues. In addition to the "normal" Hazmat chemicals, there is a significant coverage of chemical, biological and radiological response to terrorism and Weapons of Mass Destruction. The Revised Second Edition also tackles issues such as dealing with hazardous wastes and conflicts between the NFPA 704 and Globally Harmonized Standards.
