About the HazChem Series

Each program in the HazChem Series focuses on a different chemical product or group of chemical products designed to provide training to persons who may be expected to respond to an emergency involving hazardous materials or who may work with these substances. Each program discusses fundamental lessons about safe handling and emergency response procedures, including: Hazard properties of the product, Occupancies where they are found, Proper protective clothing, Decontamination procedures, Emergency medical treatment, Safe response to leaks, spills and fires.

Each program is created with the assistance of a technical committee with expertise in the specific product and in emergency response. Footage of actual incidents is combined with action packed, realistic training sequences to get the viewer up close as firefighters, police, emergency medics, and industry personnel carry out procedures to mitigate incidents. HazChem programs have been the winners of over 20 awards for both film making excellence and technical content.
