When an oil spill occurs, the issue of Health and Safety, both for the public and oil spill responders, is of critical concern, and should form the cornerstone of all oil spill preparatory measures. This task is made especially difficult duringa spill, because of the vast array of tasks - each with their own Health and Safety issues, and often in conflict with each other - that need to be analysed and prioritized. This document provides a broad based guide which focuses on the practical and technical considerations during oil spill planning and response operations, including:

  • Management of Safety

  • Risk Assessment

  • Physical and Chemical safety issues during response operations

  • Volunteer Management
Available in English, French, Spanish and Russian online.
