COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Exposure Assessment During a Chemical Attack: Livestock Carcass Management
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides an overview of proper carcass management in case of chemical emergencies.

Proper management of livestock carcasses following large-scale livestock mortalities protects humans, livestock, and wildlife from chemical and biological hazards; maintains air, water, and soil resources; protects ecological resources and services; and enhances food and agricultural security.

In support of the National Response Framework, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate funds research in collaboration the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (USEPA’s) Office of Research and Development, Homeland Security Research Program (HSRP) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA’s) Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) to support the proper management of animal carcasses following major environmental incidents.

This 2 PDH online interactive presentation is intended primarily for chemical engineers and professionals who are interested in learning more about how to properly manage carcasses in an event of a chemical attack.
