Labelmaster to Publish, Distribute Updated ERG

Labelmaster, a manufacturer of regulatory compliance products, has announced it will be printing and distributing an updated 2008 Emergency Response Guidebook (ERG)--its first new edition since 2004--containing new information for first responders to use in the event of an incident involving hazardous materials.

The ERG is developed jointly by the U.S. Department of Transportation, Transport Canada, the Secretariat of Communications and Transportation of Mexico, and with the collaboration of CIQUIME (Centro de Informacion Quimica para Emergencias) of Argentina. Because the 2008 ERG is the first update since DOT's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials programs were merged, there will also be new information introduced regarding pipeline markers.

In addition, the new edition contains more than 50 amendments to proper shipping names and ID numbers (United Nations numbers), updated lists of hazardous materials, the addition of lithium ion battery and ethanol entries and identification numbers. Also, the "Initial Isolation and Protective Action Distance Table" will be split into two tables to better facilitate initial incident response actions for emergencies involving TIH (Toxic Inhalation Hazards).
