HAZARDOUS MATERIALS TECHNICIANis the only dedicated, up-to-date text to cover all key concepts, principles, and hands-on techniques associated with effective hazardous materials response. Organized to follow the logical progression of a hazmat response, it offers detailed explanations and examples addressing regulations and standards, toxicology, chemistry, information resources, PPE, air monitoring, sample identification, containers, damage assessment, product control, decontamination, ICS, response organization, and much more.
