||State programs to reduce uncontrolled ammonia releases and associated injury using the hazardous substances emergency events surveillance system
||Mar. 2009, Vol.51, No.3, p.356-363. Illus. 29 ref.
||This article describes how the Hazardous Substances Emergency Events Surveillance (HSEES) programme identifies leading causes of uncontrolled ammonia releases and targets activities aimed at reducing the frequency of these incidents. HSEES data is used to identify determinants of chemical incidents and their outcomes and to help guide strategies to reduce such occurrences. Surveillance of chemical incidents elucidates the causes and consequences of these events, helps identify problems and measures the effectiveness of prevention programs.
