1What makes Hazmat Management different from Hazmat incident management? Look beyond operational issues and the hazards of the materials stay focused on top level organizational and strategic issues.

Student responses!!!


I was fortunate enough to have been the Hazmat Site Supervisor as a contractor for the government for both 32nd Naval St. and Naval Air Station North Island (NASNI) Hazmat Centers, both in San Diego, Ca. It’s for this position I held for two years that catapulted me to becoming very familiar with Hazmat Management procedures and what the difference between Hazmat Management and the management of Hazmat incidents were and how the interacted with each other.

As, a Manager in Hazmat I was put in charge of all hazmat operation on two naval bases. My number one Management responsibility was to ensure the safety of ALL my employees who worked in or around the Hazmat warehouse and also those who transported hazardous goods. Number two priority was to protect the environment at all cost from all of the hazmat that I had in my 20,000 sq/ft. warehouse from spilling or contaminating both land and water. Keeping all compatible hazmat within their designated areas was a daily checklist to prevent cross contamination, fires or breakage or spills within their boxes, cans, barrels or tanks. Proper, frequent training and keeping everyone up to date on their required hazmat certifications/ qualifications was mandated not just by our company, but also local, state and federal entity’s. As a Hazmat Manager I was in charge of my people, sites and hazmat while being housed in our warehouse or transported on our trucks.

If incidents were to happen pertaining hazmat, i.e spills, leaks, fires or overturned trucks, these incidents would than be turned over to incident commanders with the knowledge and experience of properly handling the hazmat emergency. Hazmat incident management should be well trained on how to handle hazmat disasters such as spills, leaks and dangerous gases.

Both Hazmat Management and Hazmat incidents management should be well informed of the ERG and its procedures. While one handles the storage, handling and transporting and the everyday operations of the hazmat environment the other one is on standby for such emergencies that any hazmat emergency that may occur.

This is my opinion on what makes Hazmat Management different from Hazmat incident management?




The easiest way to denote the difference in Hazmat Management and Hazmat Incident Management is understanding that Hazmat Management is a proactive approach in dealing with hazardous material, while Hazmat Incident Management is a reactive approach in dealing with hazardous material. Although these two terms do differ in the actions taken, practicing an excellent Hazmat Management program will allow for an easier mitigation of the material in a facility if an incident does take place.

There are several areas when dealing with Hazmat Management, with equal focus on all the areas. Hazardous Material is any material that will cause a health or physical hazard. Proper use, storage, shipment, placarding/labeling, and protective measures are needed to make sure that if there is an incident then the material is isolated to a specific location so that mitigation may be more simplified.

Hazmat Incident Management is the reaction to an incident involving hazardous material. If the management of the material is done correctly in the facility, then mitigating the incident should be somewhat textbook. However, it is important to treat the situation at the utmost level of danger. It is imperative to follow all safety concerns related to the material being handled (PPE, evacuation, decontamination).

While the perfect scenario would be that that hazardous material incident involved a chemical in a protective dike with the spill isolated into one area, this does not always happen. Hazardous materials do get transported on public infrastructure with a risk to bystanders if or when an incident happens. That is why it is imperative to follow all rules and regulations when dealing with hazardous materials to let all responding agencies know what is the requirements of the material is.
