(EN) (PDF) - Guidelines for Mass Casualty Decontamination During a HAZMAT/Weapon of Mass Destruction Incident | U.S. Army Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear School

"The U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center (ECBC) published two reports on mass casualty decontamination after a terrorist chemical attack as part of the Nunn Lugar Domenici Domestic Preparedness Program. At the time of this study, the "Guidelines for Mass Casualty Decontamination During a Terrorist Chemical Agent Incident" and "Guidelines for Cold Weather Mass Decontamination" were about 8 years old. The U.S. Army Chemical Biological, Radiological and Nuclear School required an updated version of these reports for their development of decontamination doctrine. The School tasked ECBC to update the original reports. Accordingly, ECBC formed and led a team to update the original reports. This focus of this study is all hazards (chemical, biological, radiological, unknown) decontamination and was compiled with input from community responders, Army responders, DoD medial, and DoD chemical-biological technical expertise. The decontamination study will serve as the basis for Army doctrine, but it's written to be applicable to DoD and civilian response organizations as well."

(EN) (PDF) - An Introduction to Hazardous Materials | dhs.gov

"As hazardous materials and hazardous wastes become more and more commonplace, accumulating in our earth, air, and water, it is vitally important that citizens are well informed about the challenges posed by these substances. American communities are facing policy decisions that can dramatically affect their population’s well being: Should hazardous materials traffic be regulated? What is the community’s role in preparing for the possibility of a serious hazardous materials accident? What should be done with household hazardous wastes? Concerned community members willing to take the time to learn more about such issues can help protect their own health and contribute to their community—for just as surely as there are thorny problems associated with hazardous materials, there are creative minds at work seeking and testing solutions. This home study course is intended to provide interested members of the general public with a basic introduction to hazardous materials that can serve as a foundation for more specific research."

"In linea con quanto già fatto in altre nazioni, il Ministero della salute dal 2010 pubblica ogni anno le Linee Guida Italiane sull’utilizzo dei farmaci antiretrovirali e sulla gestione diagnostico-clinica delle persone con infezione da HIV-1 (LG), con l’obiettivo di fornire elementi di guida sia per la prescrizione della terapia antiretrovirale di combinazione (cART) sia per la gestione complessiva dei pazienti HIV-positivi.

Le LG sono state redatte dal Centro Nazionale AIDS dell’Istituto Superiore di Sanità, su mandato del Ministro della salute, in collaborazione con la Commissione Nazionale per la lotta contro l’AIDS, la Consulta delle Associazioni per la lotta contro l’AIDS, la Società Italiana di Malattie Infettive e Tropicali. L’Agenzia Italiana del Farmaco ha messo a disposizione le sue competenze.

Il documento è rivolto agli infettivologi, agli altri specialisti coinvolti nella gestione multidisciplinare della persona con HIV in trattamento, alle associazioni di pazienti, agli amministratori, ai decisori politici degli organismi di salute pubblica e, più in generale, a tutti gli attori coinvolti dalla problematica a diverso titolo, per proporsi come un autorevole punto di riferimento comune."

"Tsunami Glossary (International Tsunami Information Center)

A tsunami, also known as a seismic sea wave, is a series of water waves caused by the displacement of a large volume of a body of water, generally an ocean or a large lake. Earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and other underwater explosions (including detonations of underwater nuclear devices), landslides, glacier calvings, meteorite impacts and other disturbances above or below water all have the potential to generate a tsunami.

Tsunami waves do not resemble normal sea waves, because their wavelength is far longer. Rather than appearing as a breaking wave, a tsunami may instead initially resemble a rapidly rising tide, and for this reason they are often referred to as tidal waves. Tsunamis generally consist of a series of waves with periods ranging from minutes to hours, arriving in a so-called "wave train".[4] Wave heights of tens of ..."

(EN) (PDF) - World Rowing Championships Media Guide | worldrowing.com

"The origin of rowing
The boat was one of mankind’s most significant mode of transport for centuries. The first representation of a rowing boat was discovered in Finland and dates back to 5,800 BC. The earliest regatta was held on 16 September 1274 in Venice, Italy, where regattas developed as challenges between gondoliers and boatmen in a variety of rowing boats. Rowing has evolved all over the world wherever people and water mix. However, the origin of the sport of rowing as we know it today comes from England, where the worldrenowned Oxford versus Cambridge University Boat Race was first held in 1829 on the River Thames.

Boat Classes
Rowing events are either sculling or sweep events. In sculling (denoted by an ‘x’), each rower has two oars whereas in sweep rowing (denoted by a ‘-‘ for boats without coxswains and ‘+’ for coxed boats) each person in the boat has one oar.

Rowing at the World Rowing Championships
The first World Rowing Championships were staged in Lucerne, Switzerland, in 1962. Initially held every four years, the championships soon ..."

(IT) (PDF) - Il rischio biologico nel settore della bonifica dei siti contaminati | inail.it

"Il problema dell’inquinamento dei suoli e delle falde acquifere da parte dei contaminanti organici di svariata natura chimica (idrocarburi, sostanze organo-alogenate, fitofarmaci, derivati dell'anilina, naftoli, pesticidi, etc.) è particolarmente rilevante in numerose zone dell'Italia e molto spesso è aggravato dalla elevata persistenza e tossicità di questi composti con i connessi rischi sanitari. Il nuovo contesto legislativo in materia di bonifica di siti contaminati ha avuto importanti ricadute nel settore tecnologico: da interventi drastici, spesso molto costosi, che di fatto non fanno che trasferire gli inquinanti da una matrice ad un’altra, la domanda di bonifica si sta spostando verso tecnologie, come quelle biologiche, più naturali e meno costose, mirate al ripristino effettivo dei siti con maggiori garanzie di eco-compatibilità.
Questa attività industriale ha necessariamente risvolti anche in termini di sicurezza occupazionale e si ritiene fondamentale che l’INAIL dia indirizzi in materia di prevenzione, valutazione e gestione dei rischi lavorativi. La monografia tratta il rischio biologico occupazionale nelle attività di bonifica che è un rischio spesso sottovalutato o per nulla considerato e fornisce indicazioni in materia di valutazione e controllo dei rischi biologici durante le diverse fasi operative."
