Hazardous Materials PortalHazardous materials / chemicals can be released into the environment through a number of means. Accidents can happen at railroads, highways and manufacturing plants. In many cases, we cannot see or smell anything out of the ordinary. In the event of an emergency, public safety agencies will provide information to the public. Pay close attention to radio or television emergency alert stations (EAS) and diligently follow any instructions given.
Chemicals are EverywhereMany people think that chemicals only show up in the workplace. This isn't true. They are to be found everywhere including our homes. Some everyday chemicals used around our homes include:
- Oven Cleaners
- Flammable solvents
