Safer Systems, an integrated chemical emergency response company, has launched an integrated emergency response software product designed for water treatment facilities to maximize their chemical monitoring and emergency response efforts.
The goal of Safer Water Treatment is to provide a cost-effective tool that ensures the safety of staff and community members from the potential release of hazardous chemicals used in water treatment, the company says.
Water treatment facilities use a variety of chemicals, such as chlorine, ammonia and sulfuric acid to make drinking water safe for consumption. Those chemicals, while relatively safe in their controlled environment, can be hazardous to the greater community in the event of an accidental loss of containment or a catastrophic event.
Safer Water Treatment includes:
- Pre-release preparedness — Improve response planning and training exercises while complying with local and federal regulations.
- Live-release monitoring — Chemical release models automatically update with live data from gas sensors and weather stations providing information for evacuation and saving lives.
- Post-release analysis — Respond effectively to post-release litigation and improve preparedness for the future with comprehensive model and data archives.
Available as a standalone software installation or as a software and hardware package, Safer Water Treatment can be integrated with a facility’s existing weather or gas sensor system to enable maximum performance and accuracy, the company says. All Safer Water Treatment subscription packages include around the clock expert support and free continuous software updates.
