Unit IV will address the chemical characteristics of some 9 toxic substances contained in Chapter 10 of the textbook. The interplay of these substances with the regulations from the DOT on their transportation in commerce will also be studied. Some of these hazardous materials were covered in the previous unit on corrosive and water/air-reactive classifications. The reactions that occur when incompatible hazardous chemicals are mixed together can be quite violent and dangerous.
I have reprinted the requirements from the Course Syllabus for the Unit IV PowerPoint Presentation below. You can access a very good tutorial on PowerPoints from your Student Resources button. It breaks down the whole process in informative sections.
PLEASE NOTE: I AM MAKING AN ADJUSTMENT HERE. YOU MAY USE ANY OF THE FACILITY RELATED HAZARDOUS MATERIALS INCIDENTS FROM THE WWW.CSB.GOV SITE, OR YOU MAY GO TO THE DOT WEBSITE FOR A TRANSPORTATION RELATED INCIDENT.
Unit IV PowerPoint Presentation For this assignment, you have been tasked with presenting information to your company’s board regarding a hazardous materials incident involving the transport of toxic substances that falls under the hazard classifications that we have studied so far (water/air reactive, corrosive, or toxic) identified on the following Web page(s): http HYPERLINK “http://www.csb.gov/investigations” HYPERLINK “http://www.csb.gov/investigations” HYPERLINK “http://www.csb.gov/investigations”://Your presentation must include the following information: summary of the incident; identification of the information (hazard class, description, labels, markings, and placards) that the DOT requires when transporting toxic substances and information about workplace exposure concentrations of the substance involved in the incident; description of the elements of the emergency response to the incident including a discussion on its environmental and BOS 3640, Interactions of Hazardous Materials 2 human health impacts (be sure to address how the toxic substance’s chemical properties, uses, and ill effects may affect the tasks and safety of an EHS and FS professional working the incident); Discussion of your opinion on the response to the incident For this assignment, you will create a PowerPoint presentation consisting of at least 5 slides (not including your title slide and reference slide) containing the information described above. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced. You must include at least two sources. Paraphrased and/or quoted materials must have accompanying citations in APA format.
