ERG 2012 shipping now
Originally published:  30/05/2012
US PHMSA, in cooperation with its counterparts in Canada and Mexico, has released the 2012 edition of the Emergency Response Guide (ERG). The Guide is designed as a ‘go-to manual’ for first responders on actions to be taken in the first 30 minutes of any hazmat accident. “We take the safety of this nation and its emergency responders very seriously,” says Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “Our goal is to make sure that these critical responders have the most current information possible.” The 2012 version of the ERG includes general revisions, reorganised 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 and a downloadable version are available here.
