The workshop will investigate the specific elements of the prevention of, preparedness for, and response to chemical accidents caused by natural hazard or natural disaster.
In 1987 after major accidents with releases of hazardous chemicals from production sites in both Bhopal, India (December 1984) and Schweizerhalle, Switzerland (November 1986), member countries asked the OECD to start work related to chemicals in hazardous installations. The Chemicals Programme reacted quickly and the first results of this work were discussed at a High Level Conference on Accidents involving Hazardous Substances early
Recommends that Member countries establish or strengthen national programmes for the prevention of, preparedness for, and response to accidents involving hazardous substances.
