Standby Rescue for Chemical Handling

Standby Rescue for Chemical Handling – Inventory and Transportation for a Private Hazardous Materials Disposal Firm

Our client recognized they did not have sufficient in-house emergency response capability during the planning stages of their chemical inventory and transportation of materials.

Realizing that is was not feasible or worthwhile to train and equip in-house staff, TRR was retained to provide standby rescue teams while the client inspected, inventoried and prepared for transport in excess of 150 individual chemical containers discovered in an abandoned storage area of a large educational institution. Response teams were responsible for four contractor representatives operating inside the evacuated facility. Materials present included toxic compressed gases, shock sensitive and explosive materials and other highly reactive materials.
