By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Board on Army Science and Technology, Committee on Review and Evaluation of the Army Chemical Stockpile Disposal Program

In conserving with a congressional mandate (Public legislation 104-484) and the Chemical guns conference, the USA is presently destroying its chemical guns stockpile. the military needs to make sure that the chemical demilitarization group is protected against the dangers of publicity to dangerous chemical compounds in the course of disposal operations and through and after facility closure. solid commercial practices built within the chemical and nuclear power industries and different operations that contain the processing of harmful fabrics contain place of work tracking of dangerous species and a scientific occupational wellbeing and fitness software for tracking employees' actions and health and wellbeing. during this file, the nationwide study Council Committee on overview and assessment of the military Chemical Stockpile Disposal application examines the tools and structures used at JACADS and TOCDF, the 2 operational amenities, to observe the concentrations of airborne and condensed-phase chemical brokers, agent breakdown items, and different elements of shock. The committee additionally reports the occupational healthiness courses at those websites, together with their business hygiene and occupational drugs parts. ultimately, it evaluates the character, caliber, and application of documents of place of work chemical tracking and occupational wellbeing and fitness programs.

The Army and its operating contractors should automate as much as feasible important medical information related to worker exposure to facilitate epidemiological studies. Automated information, available at the programmatic level, should include, but should not be limited to, results of medical examinations, evaluations of exposure to agents, measurements of cholinesterase levels, heat-stress data, and accident/injury information.

The lack of Army involvement in this area is appropriate because this is an industry regulatory activity. Several of the nonessential program components recommended by ACOEM, such as palliative treatment of disorders to enable a worker to complete a work shift and to obtain health education and counseling, are included in the Army’s program. The Army also provides in-depth training for all personnel involved in the occupational and environmental health program. One committee member attended the Toxic Chemical Training Course for Medical Support Personnel given at Edgewood, Maryland, in April 2000.
