Chemical and Biological Terrorism

The NIEHS Worker Training Program (WTP) and its awardees provided information, equipment, and training resources to worker populations involved in response and cleanup operations related to the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and they continue to prepare for the possibility of future man-made disasters. The following resources are aimed at protecting the health and safety of those responding to the aftermath of a chemical or biological terrorism event. For additional resources on chemical hazard identification and assessment, chemical safety and security, and chemical incident response, please visit our Chemical Exposure page.
