The Emergency Risk Guide (ERG) – 2012 Edition
The USA’s Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA), in co-operation with its counterparts in Canada and Mexico, has released the 2012 edition of the “The Emergency Risk Guide (ERG)”.
The guide is designed for first responders providing actions to be taken in the first 30 minutes of any hazmat accident.
The 2012 version of the ERG includes general revisions, reorganized general information pages and new tables such as Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distances for large spills involving six common toxic inhalation hazard gases.
More information is on the PHMSA website.
