NCEC attended the Emergency Services Show on 23 and 24 September 2014. The 2 day exhibition provided the opportunity to demonstrate the latest version of NCEC’s interactive chemical hazard database, Chemdata, 2014.1, which now provides access to even more information including over 55,000 substances and 157,000 different chemical names.
The exhibition also enabled NCEC to promote the Chemsafe service, which it provides in conjunction with the department for transport and the chemical industry association. The Chemsafe service provides free 24/7 advice to UK emergency services and the show enabled the NCEC team to promote the free training sessions that are available to UK emergency services to ensure they can maximise the value of using the service.
Delegates to the exhibition also showed significant interest in Hazmat 2015, a 2 day conference hosted by NCEC and Tactical Hazmat, designed specifically for Hazmat professionals who need to keep up to date with hazardous materials response, chemical exposure and monitoring, emergency planning, developments in legislation, future technologies and learn lessons from past experiences.
