Safety Alerts

In addition to Safety Advisory Notices, the Office of Hazardous Materials Safety may also issue a Safety Alert. This document is often issued in conjunction with a Safety Advisory Notice, especially when risks warrant broadcasting concerns to a more diverse audience. Brochures or pamphlets are intended to notify a specific audience of a safety hazard.
