HazMatters: NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory
In this edition of HAZMATTERS we look at the team protecting the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.
In certain cases, private facilities require not only the expertise of dedicated emergency responders, but HAZMAT teams that are ready to immerse themselves in the knowledge of specific chemicals and processes at hand.
The NASA JPL emergency responders are on call 24 hours a day, ready to protect the facility.
According to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory website:
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory is a unique national research facility that carries out robotic space and Earth science missions. JPL helped open the Space Age by developing America’s first Earth-orbiting science satellite, creating the first successful interplanetary spacecraft, and sending robotic missions to study all the planets in the solar system as well as asteroids, comets and Earth’s moon. In addition to its missions, JPL developed and manages NASA’s Deep Space Network, a worldwide system of antennas that communicates with interplanetary spacecraft.
Today’s HazMatters is sponsored by HAZSIM
HazSim Pro training system has been used to train across the U.S since 2011. Trainers in HazMat and Confined Space realized that ‘tapping the student on the shoulder’ was NOT effective training. This system uses NO hazardous materials and although may not look exactly like your front line meter, shows the important data which the all students needs to learn to ‘react’ to.
