Types of Emergency ScenariosMy EH&S

For guidance on proper response to various emergencies, review documents below:
- Health Threatening Emergencies - fire, explosion, serious injury/exposure
- Non-health Threatening Emergencies - no health threats, but spill is too large to be cleaned up by lab personnel
- Small Spills - cleaned up by lab personnel
