Statistics from the Department of Transportation reveal that 21,539 hazardous material incidents occurred within 2021 in the United States alone. These incidences can have a detrimental effect on the environment and public health, in the long and short term. With increasing scrutiny on companies and individuals to meet stricter environmental targets, mitigating and preventing hazardous material incidents is a key step to creating a cleaner, greener future.

To protect both the environment and public health, it is first important to identify what hazardous materials are and understand how they are categorised. Following this, examining what processes are currently in place, and how these can be improved to prevent hazardous materials from endangering people, entering waterways, and contaminating soil, is the crucial step to reducing the impact of hazardous material spills.

Health and safety professionals are the key to understanding, maintaining, and reducing the risks associated. To reduce the rate of incidents, education and awareness of hazardous materials and their impact are critical tools that should be added to any health and safety professional’s toolkit.

Leading UK OEM of photoionisation detection (PID) technology and gas detection instrumentation, ION Science, has partnered with Health & Safety Matters to deliver a free webinar on this topic. The webinar will cover the importance of understanding the dangers associated with hazardous material spillages, and the consequences on public health, wildlife, and the environment.

This webinar will include focus on the following areas:
• How HAZMAT spills can occur
• Current HAZMAT processes
• The health effects spills can cause
• The environmental impact of spills (including soil contamination)
• How PID technology can identify and track spills and contamination
• Live Q&A session

Register for free today and join this webinar with ION Science and Health & Safety Matters on the 20th April 2022 at 10.30am. https://events.streamgo.live/hazardous-materials-spills-soil-contamination-20th-april-2022/register

Find out more about how you can help prevent hazardous spills and identify, detect and prevent hazardous material spills from impacting the public and the environment.
