Guidance for the environmental public health management of crude oil incidents : a guide intended for public health and emergency management practitioners / Chemical Emergency Preparedness and Response...: H129-82/2018E-PDF

"After the Lac-Mégantic disaster, the public health community and emergency management practitioners, as well as numerous groups involved in crude oil transport and use and concerned citizens, felt the need for a guidance document addressing the key features of crude oil incidents and their management. This guidance document was prepared to fulfil this need, and is directed primarily at environmental public health and emergency management practitioners responsible for the public health management of chemical incidents. It is intended to assist in the development of emergency preparedness plans (notably awareness, education, and training activities) and in the design of scenarios for emergency exercises. This guidance provides basic information on crude oil, its hazards, and its potential effects on health. The focus is primarily on acute exposure resulting from major incidents of public health concern"--Introd., p. 1.
