Recognizing that epidemiologists can make a valuable contribution to each phase of a chemical incident - preparedness, response and follow-up the WHO European centre for environmental and health convened a working group to set out some of the most effective approaches.
This book is the result.
It identifies the special part that epidemiology can play in a coordinated multidisciplinary response to a chemical incident, the tools to use in health risk assessment and roles in support activities such as training and the dissemination of information.
The book supports and illustrates its arguments with lessons learned from the management of four major incidents in Europe : the fire at Schweizerhalle, the Seveso accident, the grounding of an oil tanker in Scotland and the toxic oil syndrome in Spain.
