The 2008 Emergency Response Guidebook is the first release of the ERG since 2004, containing new information for first responders in the event of an incident involving hazardous materials. Labelmaster will print the updated 2008 ERG.

New in the book for 2008:

  • More than 50 amendments to proper shipping names and ID numbers (United Nations numbers)

  • Lists of hazardous materials will be updated

  • Lithium Ion batteries entry will be added

  • Ethanol entries and identification numbers will be added

  • 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)
