Crisis Planning and Response

Agricultural Chemicals Company, Alaska

Occupational medical physician and toxicologist provided risk communication training and assisted with crisis response planning for large agricultural chemicals company. The plan and other preparatory work allowed the facility to quickly resolve issues following the capsizing of a barge carrying 12,500 tons of urea granules. The consultant team worked with the Coast Guard to develop safe urea exposure levels following the spill and assisted with communications for both internal and external audiences, including emergency responders. The effort effectively managed the crisis and mitigated its impacts on the organization. The effort was so successful that local residents took out a newspaper advertisement thanking the company for its prompt and thorough response.
