Hazardous Materials Safety
Observe commercial vehicles (e.g., semis, trains) that you see while traveling for a few days. Discuss the classes of hazardous materials that you encountered on your trips. What placards did you see the most? Did you see any classes of hazardous materials that you were surprised to see in a particular mode of transport? If you have seen any article about an accident in your area recently which involved a hazardous material, please summarize the accident, including the type of hazardous materials involved, any evacuation that might have been required, and any details about emergency response that you are aware of. Your journal entry must be at least 300 words in length. No references or citations are necessary.
