Need an research paper on hazardous materials chemistry for emergency responders. Needs to be 6 pages. Please no plagiarism. The utility of this book becomes readily apparent upon reading this book even from the very start. It attempts to explain complex topics in a very simple manner from the point of view or standpoint of chemistry. The author makes the reader understand how important it is to know various hazards presented by chemicals but uses street chemistry language to make matters easily understandable. The point of the book is to impart important knowledge about hazards and it does this task surprisingly and wonderfully clear. Even an ordinary reader gets away from reading this book with a greatly improved knowledge of various chemical hazards. Most of the topics in this book are organized in a very logical manner so knowledge reading is vastly easier and likely to be retained with the use of simple language. The author utilizes the US Department of Transportation (DOT) nine major official classifications of these hazardous materials and discusses each major hazard under a separate chapter.
Chapter 1 of the book gives an excellent introduction and background on how these hazardous materials came into their existing classification system. The US DOT was the first to designate a hazard class for each hazardous material being transported and also invented a placard system to label these materials in a clearly visible manner during transport. Various government agencies are also involved with hazardous materials in their regulatory capacities such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) which is concerned with hazardous materials (now henceforth shorted to just hazmat) in the workplace while the other agency also concerned with hazmat is the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) addresses hazmat wastes and their proper disposal methods.
This book presents emergency response personnel (especially firefighters and .medical emergency personnel) with a street view of chemistry as it applies to all hazardous materials in any emergency response situation.
