Chemical Disaster Project - Hector Salinas
Transcript of Chemical Disaster Project - Hector Salinas
Today in Bhopal there is abnormal skin, lung and gastro intestinal cancer increases. Many of today’s children have genetic defects and the survivors continue to suffer from poor coordination, memory loss, pyrolysis, partial blindness and impaired immune systems.
Doctors and hospitals were not aware
about proper treatment methods for MIC
gas inhalation and they were directed to
give cough medicine and eye drops to
Short/Long Term Environmental effects Gas polluted the air and it was later discovered that there was groundwater contamination up to three kilometers from the factory. The company stressed the "immediate action" taken after the disaster and their continued commitment to helping the victims. On December the 4th, 1984 the day following the leak, Union Carbide sent material aid and several international medical experts to assist the medical facilities in Bhopal. Union Carbide states on its website that it put $2 million into the Indian prime minister's immediate disaster relief fund on 11 December 1984. Precautionary measures before and after The huge, highly dangerous plant was being operated by men who had next to no training, who spoke no English, but were expected to use English manuals. Morale was low but safety fears were ignored by management therefore their precautionary measures were poor before the disaster.
Since the time of the incident, the chemical industry has worked to voluntarily develop and implement strict safety and environmental standards to help ensure that an incident of this type never occurs again.
