TELEPHONE NUMBER REQUIREMENT:
Unless excepted, a hazardous materials/ dangerous goods shipping paper must contain an emergency response phone number. The number must be monitored at all times by someone with immediate access to someone who is knowledgeable of the hazardous material and has comprehensive emergency and incident mitigation response information for that materials.
WHO WE ARE:
Infotrac is a sophisticated chemical emergency response system which provides current information and comprehensive assistance in emergency situations involving hazardous materials (dangerous goods). Infotrac’s Command Center Hotline fulfills the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) mandate requiring hazardous material shippers provide a 24-hour emergency response telephone number on shipping papers. The emergency response telephone number also fulfills the requirement set forth by OSHA to have emergency contact information on (SDS) Safety Data Sheets. Infotrac has been a safe and trusted provider of this service since 1989 and represents more than 13,000 clients worldwide with offices in Florida and Germany.
WHAT WE DO:
At the time an emergency call is received at the Infotrac Command Center, it is immediately answered by one of our trained emergency response specialists.
Our specialist will proceed with an evaluation of the chemical emergency and will then disseminate all information necessary, related to evacuation radius, fire-fighting procedures, incompatibility with other products, protective clothing requirements, and any other additional information needed. Should there be any injuries, we can interlink with our partner Tampa Bay General Hospital where toxicologists and doctors will provide additional first aid information.
Infotrac specialists will then notify the Infotrac member, advise as to the status of the emergency, and if necessary, interlink them with the emergency site location via the Command Center interlink. All emergency calls and response information is recorded and logged by date and time for future evaluation by both Infotrac and participating member if necessary. All recordings are kept on file and a copy will be made available to the member company if needed.
Infotrac will provide the member with the proper Department of Transportation (DOT) reporting form (F5800.1) which is required by the DOT to be submitted within 30 days of any hazardous substance or material release during transportation (including loading, unloading and temporary storage related to transportation).
