Essential knowledge for managing hazardous chemicals

  • Students learn to interpret labels, markings, and placards on shipments carrying hazardous materials, with emphasis on regulations of the Globally Harmonized System for Labeling and Characterizing Hazardous Chemicals, Canada’s Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System, and the US Department of Transportation (Ch. 6).
  • NFPA hazard diamonds and GHS pictograms are displayed throughout the text to help students grasp the visual information they will need to master in order to identify the dangers associated with specific chemical substances.
  • Acceptable practices for handling and storing hazardous materials are emphasized throughout. Also included are emergency action plans in the event hazardous substances are released into the environment.
  • Students build knowledge of basic chemistry as they proceed through chapters, helping them grasp the technical basis for the occupational, transportation, and environmental regulations that affect their daily work.

Contemporary issues and examples

  • Updated - The new edition introduces students to the latest technologies for managing hazardous materials.
  • Updated - Detailed data tables demonstrating the HazMat preparation process have been added.
  • Updated - Descriptions of current events give context to the concepts discussed in the text. Examples include fracking natural gas from shale, dust explosions, and the global¿ warming potential of greenhouse gases.
  • Information is provided on modern uses of alternative motor fuels, including hydrogen, natural gas, liquefied petroleum gas, methanol, ethanol, coal-¿derived liquid fuels, and biofuels.

Pedagogical aids

  • A correlation guide to FESHE curriculum learning objectives places material in the context of industry standards.
  • Updated - The 7th edition has been updated with numerous challenging exercises. Solved exercises in each chapter and end¿-of-¿chapter review exercises help responders apply essential principles to actual situations.
  • Enhanced - The layout and organization have been simplified and streamlined to ease the learning process.
  • Updated - The new edition includes updated illustrations and diagrams to build understanding.
  • Resource Central, at bradybooks.com, offers supplemental teaching materials such as test banks and customizable PowerPoint lectures. These resources are also available through Pearson’s Instructor Resource Center.

A guide to hazardous materials, for both the chemistry novice and the emergency responder.
Chemistry of Hazardous Materials covers principles of basic chemistry and the chemical properties that make materials hazardous. Assuming no prior knowledge of basic chemistry, the text is equally useful as a teaching tool for the non-science major and an on-the-job resource for the emergency responder. With a simplified, streamlined layout, the 7th edition includes an introduction to the latest technologies, additional challenging exercises, and a discussion of current events to offer context for ways of interpreting, handling, and storing hazardous chemical substances.

For courses in hazardous materials.
