Summary

Chemistry of Hazardous Materials, Sixth Edition, covers basic chemistry for emergency responders, guiding students who are often non-science majors through the process of understanding the chemical properties that make materials hazardous. This text covers many essential hazardous materials topics, such as the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemical Substances (GHS); terrorist threats relative to biological, chemical, and radioactive agents; and the latest best practices for the handling and storage of hazardous materials. This new edition continues to emphasize the hazardous materials regulations established by the OSHA, the U.S. D.O.T., and the EPA.

 

Online supplemental teaching materials are available to help instructors and students get the most from their EMS course.

  • Resource Central, accessed through www.bradybooks.com, offers instructors online supplemental teaching material, such as test banks and customizable PowerPoint lectures to aid in the classroom. These instructor resources are also available through Pearson’s Instructor Resource Center.
  • Students have access to a variety online study aids tailored to their EMS course.
