Emergency Response Guidebook 2008 is a vital tool in providing initial guidance to emergency services personnel responding to hazardous material incidents. ERG2008 is primarily a guide to aid first responders in quickly identifying the specific or generic hazards of the material(s) involved in an incident, and protecting themselves and the general public during the initial response phase. The guidebook is not intended to provide information on the physical or chemical properties of dangerous goods.

The book is indexed numerically and colour-coded so that vital information can be found quickly and easily. It contains:
  • index list of dangerous goods in numerical order of ID number
  • index list of dangerous goods in alphabetical order of material name
  • safety recommendations: 62 individual guides containing potential hazards, suggested public safety measures and emergency response actions
  • listing, by ID number of Toxic Inhalation Hazard (TIH) materials, including certain chemical warfare agents, and water-reactive materials which produce toxic gases upon contact with water. A second table lists by ID number, materials which produce large amounts of TIH gases when spilled in water and identifies the TIH gases produced.
The ERG2008 incorporates dangerous goods lists from the most recent United Nations Recommendations as well as from other international and national regulations.

Price and availability subject to change. Shipping and applicable taxes extra.
