While industry is the primary user and handler of hazardous chemicals, individuals also have them in their homes, cars, work and recreation places. Hazardous materials move through suburbs on highways, rail lines, pipelines and by ship and barge. These major transportation routes are utilised by the trucking industry to transport chemicals to local manufacturing plants, businesses and retail outlets.
Hazardous materials pose a potential risk to life, health, environment and property when not properly contained. Hazardous materials may be explosive, flammable, combustible, corrosive, reactive, poisonous, biological, or radioactive as well as solid, liquid or gaseous.
Hazardous material incidents may be either generated from a fixed site or the result of transportation-related accident or release, or can even be the secondary result of a natural disaster like earthquakes or floods
