  • Information on Waste Management Practices

    The European Topic Centre on Waste (ETC/W) has prepared this technical report on the design of catalogues on waste management and waste minimisation. During the initial stages of the work, it became evident that basic work related to data, structure and definition of common code-lists was necessary to ensure that the catalogues, at a later stage, can be used as integrated parts of the ETC/W data ...

  • Implementing an EH&S Information Management

    It is difficult to imagine a business world without software of some sort to simplify processes.

  • Emergency management and the information society: how to improve the synergy?

    This paper deals with the paradox of the relatively low integration of Information Technologies and Communication Technologies in the field of emergency management. This fact earns our attention, since difficulties during the management of emergencies and crisis are most often related to these two issues, information management and communication. The analysis of the activity of emergency ...

  • Hazard material information management and regulatory compliance

    Prior to the 1970s, legislative acts addressing hazardous chemicals were few in number and specific to a handful of topics. The Refuse Act of 1899 was often ignored and rarely enforced, and the Atomic Energy Act of 1954 was exclusive to radioactive material. When it came to workplace and community safety involving the handling, storage, disposal, and transportation of hazardous materials, ...

  • A comparison and classification framework for disaster information management systems

    A disaster, whether artificial or natural, can overwhelm even the best prepared segment of a society. When not properly managed, the same disaster inflicts far more damage than necessary. At the core of disaster management lie the monumental tasks of collecting, distributing, processing, and presenting disaster-related data. Although many products and proposals claim to accomplish these critical ...

  • Information Network Topologies for Enhanced Local Adaptive Management

    A land-use-change simulation model (LEAM) and a non-point-source (NPS) water quality model (L-THIA) were closely coupled as LEAMwq in order to determine the long-term implications of various degree of urbanization on NPS total nitrogen (TN), total suspended particles (TSP), and total phosphorus (TP) loads. A future land-use projection in the St. Louis metropolitan area from 2005 to 2030 using ...
