Query Builder for Query Module for National Toxic Substance Incidents - Substances


The purpose of Utah's National Toxic Substances Incidents Program (NTSIP) is to collect and analyze data related to toxic substance releases. NTSIP data provides needed information to create prevention activities, which can decrease injury and death as a result of a toxic substance incident. Knowing what kinds of toxic substances commonly exist in Utah, how and where they are released, and the effects they have on employees, responders, and the general public will create opportunities for improved policies, procedures, and training for a cleaner, safer environment. It can also assist first responders and local emergency planning committees in coordinating their response activities.

In 2009, the Hazardous Substances Emergency Events Surveillance (HSEES) Program ended and was replaced by NTSIP. This change reflects a more comprehensive approach to reducing risks from toxic substances.
