Skip to main content Skip to "About government" Skip to section menu. Health Canada's Role. In a radiological or nuclear emergency, Health Canada coordinates the federal government response under the Federal Nuclear Emergency Plan , In a chemical emergency, the Department takes action through the Chemical Emergency Response Unit by preparing and coordinating the response activities of the Safe Environments Programme , the Department's scientific lead for chemical emergencies. Chemical Stockpile Emergency Preparedness Program.
Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear and Explosive (CBRNE) Events
A round-the-clock resource for obtaining immediate critical response information for incidents involving hazardous materials and dangerous goods. In Situ Burning. The plan includes those elements unique to in-situ burning ISB for response personnel. Topics addressed include: burn entry objectives, response organization, burn area control, hazard evaluation, personal protective equipment PPE , decontamination procedures, etc.
Provides information on site safety planning specific to in-situ burning. Safety hazards for in-situ burning ISB operations are similar to those of mechanical response operations at sea, with additional hazards related to the burning of oil. In order for in-situ burning ISB to be an effective spill response tool, oil thickness must be between mm. This fact sheet explores the current state of fire boom technology, existing protocols and standards, and future research and development needs. Updated since , this compilation of references is intended to provide the user with information on in-situ burning ISB that may be useful or interesting.
Identifies relevant local contacts with which to consult. Often, the window of opportunity for a burn may be only a few hours. Despite the minimal hazards posed by soot and gas, thick black smoke produced in an in-situ burning ISB appears threatening, eroding public confidence in the safety of the process.
This fact sheet identifies techniques to enhance ISB. Most notably, providing the necessary air to a burn avoids starved combustion of oil, thereby reducing the emission of hazardous smoke and soot, and shortening response time.
Designed to assist RRTs in developing oil spill contingency plans, this fact sheet examines acceptable exposure limits to hazardous particulates for both the general public and responders. It also discusses other risk factors, monitoring and sampling strategies, and identifies future research priorities.
An Alternative Approach to Spill Response Provides recent information on in-situ burning ISB for consideration as an alternative technology to present cleanup methods such as mechanical recovery or dispersants. The alert discusses how to minimize such hazards and provides further resources on lightning protection, statutes, regulations, codes and standards.
Guidance, Technical Assistance & Planning
Fire Administration is the lead Federal agency for fire data collection, public fire education, fire research and Fire Service training. The guidance is a living document envisioned to continue addressing monitoring challenges as conditions dictate; and allows for the inclusion of other atypical dispersant applications. In its current version, this document contains the following:. Subsea Application Guidance — generally applies to the subsurface ocean environment, focusing particularly on operations in waters below meters and below the average pycnocline.
Prolonged Surface Application Guidance — supplements and complements the existing protocols as outlined in the Special Monitoring of Applied Response Technologies SMART monitoring program where the duration of the application of dispersants on discharged oil extends beyond 96 hours from the time of the first application.
The website provides a wealth of information on radiation and radiation emergencies. It is intended to help workers and employers who may be involved in emergency response operations or impacted by radiation emergencies, but who do not have emergency response roles. It also introduces workers and employers to hazard assessment and radiation measurement and describes health effects associated with exposure to radiation. Coastal Waters — Report to Congress — November The document concisely covers things important to protecting the health of fishermen who could encounter these munitions: disposal overview; protective equipment donning and doffing; and 9 step emergency disposal procedure.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration developed the following fact sheets provide technical information about the characteristics of different oils, their behavior when spilled, and their effects on wildlife, plants, and habitats:. While significant testing has been performed by different organizations on crude oil produced from the Bakken formation, the testing is generally comprised of standard petroleum characteristic analyses and characterization for proper transportation based on Department of Transportation DOT classifications.
The data from these testing programs have provided critical knowledge for classifying and understanding standard properties of hazardous materials - in this case, a light, sweet crude oil. The primary purpose of these Pilot Scale Studies was to determine air concentrations, under observed meteorological conditions, of benzene in Bakken Crude following spills to water.
The resulting information helps to inform initial decision-making and thereby better protect workers involved in a Bakken Crude Oil release response. International Coordination. Toggle navigation. Office of Hazardous Materials Safety PHMSA Carries out a national safety program, including security matters, to protect against the risks to life and property inherent in the transportation of hazardous materials in commerce other than bulk transportation onboard vessels.
Environmental Contaminants Encyclopedia National Park Service The Environmental Contaminants Encyclopedia, last updated in , summarizes information about environmental contaminants and serves as a quick reference for determining whether or not concentrations are above levels that might affect living things.
Medical Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Information Server Provides news, medical references, site guides and training. Public Health Emergency HHS Public health resources and tools for the public and healthcare, response and recovery workers.
Chemtrec A round-the-clock resource for obtaining immediate critical response information for incidents involving hazardous materials and dangerous goods. Chemdex The Sheffield Chemdex: the directory of chemistry on the world wide web since Bibliography on In-Situ Burning Updated since , this compilation of references is intended to provide the user with information on in-situ burning ISB that may be useful or interesting. Aeration Techniques for In-Situ Burning of Oil: Enhancing an Alternative Spill Response Method Despite the minimal hazards posed by soot and gas, thick black smoke produced in an in-situ burning ISB appears threatening, eroding public confidence in the safety of the process.
