Chemistry of Hazardous Materials, Sixth Edition, covers basic chemistry for emergency responders, guiding students who are often non-science majors through the process of understanding the chemical properties that make materials hazardous. This text covers many essential hazardous materials topics, such as the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemical Substances (GHS); terrorist threats relative to biological, chemical, and radioactive agents; and the latest best practices for the handling and storage of hazardous materials. This new edition continues to emphasize the hazardous materials regulations established by the OSHA, the U.S. D.O.T., and the EPA.
