A New Perspective on Hazardous Materials Spills and Response

This seminar will focus on changing the response time, method and effects of hazardous materials spills, thereby, reducing the environmental impact. Often, responders can’t get to a spill until most of the product has been lost. Abatement of the spill then requires time consuming and rudimentary methods. That product has then, already leeched into the environment. We need to change response protocols, thereby reducing the effect and costs of hazardous material spills.
