Abstract:

The purpose of this project was to conduct a one-year review of the usefulness, adequacy, and responsiveness of the Chemical Hazards Response Information System CHRIS based upon actual field experiences of Coast Guard users for whom the system has been developed. In addition to identifying specific opportunities for system improvement and evolution, a second important purpose was to facilitate the initial fine tuning of the system following its initial deployment. Although the study focused on emergency spill response use of Chris, nonemergency uses, such as contingency planning, were also examined. The review covered the following CHRIS components and adjuncts A Condensed Guide to Chemical Hazards, CG-446-1 Hazardous Chemical Data, CG-446-2 Hazard Assessment Handbook, CG-446-3 Response Methods Handbook, CG-446-4 Hazard Assessment Computer System HACS and Regional Contingency Plan Data Base part of the Regional Contingency Plan.
