Volume 2, Number 1, 2004
This guide is for the people who write the words, who take the pictures, and who tell the stories about the events in our world—both ordinary and extraordinary. It is intended to provide information about how the public health system is preparing for and will respond to previously
unthinkable events, such as September 11. More specifically, the guide’s intent is to offer the best possible information about the worst-case scenarios.
Pan American Health Organization’s Area on Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief has developed this manual as a tool to be used by national and local authorities and professionals from public institutions that are affected by this issue. This manual provides the technical information that will support the correct approach to handling dead bodies.
Excellent guidance document for healthcare facilities. Explains multiple regulatory requirements from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and how they apply to hospitals as an integral part of their communities' emergency response capability.
This document from PandemicFlu.gov contains general guidelines for cleaning or maintaining Emergency Medical Service (EMS) Transport Vehicles after transporting a suspected influenza patient during a pandemic. This guidance may
be modified or additional procedures may be recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as part of the evaluation of an ill traveler, when an influenza pandemic becomes widespread in the United States, or as new information about a pandemic strain becomes available.
The purpose of this guide is to provide community planners – as well as planners at the facility/community, institutional, State, and Federal levels – with valuable information and insights that will help them in their efforts to plan for and respond to a mass casualty event (MCE).
OSHA Publication 3114 clearly lays out the regulatory text of the "HAZWOPER" regulation found in 29CFR 1910.120. The scope and application of paragraph (a) and the tables clearly define the application and training requirments for either clean up situations or emergency response.
This is a great introductory and very handy reference to have to really understand the difference of "HAZWOP" and "ER".
