Tools and Procedures of the Science Officer in the Management of Hazardous-Material Incidents
Keywords:Chemical hazard, Chemical science officer, Propagation models, Soil contamination
AbstractA chemical science officer ensures with his know-how, his experience based on continuous improvement and with the help of databases, optimal advice to the operational crew. In the event of incidents with hazardous materials, great attention must be given to self-protection of the operational crew, to the shelter of residents, to the environment and to the prevention of destruction of assets. While minimizing the hazard, the chemical science officer works closely with the officer-in-charge, environmental authorities, police and chemical analysis groups.
