1. Review the attached PPT, research the two incidents mentioned in the weekly topics. Review and cite various journals outlining Anhydrous ammonia (NH3) uses in the industrial setting and the emergency response planning needed to prevent an event.
2. Using the two case studies mentioned, select one and delve into the role of site safety officer for the applicable company. This role will give you a “facility” perspective of planning, training, and responding to a hazardous materials release. From the facility perspective, research and review this role and list the major functions and responsibilities.
3. After reviewing the case study, immerse yourself into the proper planning techniques and training that would have prevented the release and worker injuries. List out your planning strategies and implemented site training to ensure your site is prepared to PREVENT an incident.
4. Finally, immerse yourself into the actual incident and list the activities/tasks you need to accomplish to ensure no further damage to live, property, and the community.
This is a two week endeavor…. to be completed at the end of the second week
