Last year a tractor trailer in Florida flipped on its side and spilled its contents onto the highway. The vehicle contained compressed hydrogen cylinders along with drums of other unidentified chemicals. The government has several regulations and procedures that it can rely on to try to handle the situation. One such procedure is to have a health and safety plan in place. As stated in the text “The HASP would identify the specific operations that were needed, and rules would be developed to further control the exposure” (Gantt, 2012, p 425). The HASP for the highway workers involved shutting down the road and dispatching its hazmat response team. Another procedure that will help in this situation is the use of DOT labels.
