Operational emergency management or, ‘it is likely that something improbable happens (Aristotle)’

Daily hazardous substances and goods are handled in shipping companies and establishments of the civil service in containers. Due to this logistics task, numerous transports of these containers have to be disposed at the interfaces between vehicles or load carriers in handling areas, as well as in transition areas.


Also within corporations and institutions dangerous substances and goods in bulk from warehouses to points of consumption (E.g. production or laboratory) must be provided and brought from there to waste disposal stations .
This internal transport of containers of different sizes and properties can be made by hand, with trucks or conveyors. That can cause damage to containers, where dangerous substances and goods unintentionally can be released.


Therefore, it is particularly important during the handling and transport of dangerous substances to be prepared on an accidental emission. The introduction of an emergency-management-system provides a target-oriented and methodical approach to the mitigation and elimination of the caved substances without to bring the emergency helpers or any other persons in a dangerous situation.


In the context of emergency-management-system is to determine when which people have to work with which tasks in an emergency case respectively how you and other attendees have to behave like. (source: DGUV Germany).
