Why?In an everyday scenario, the media would not usually be exposed to Toxic Industrial Hazards or CBRN releases. However, exposure to these types of hazards is becoming a more common occurrence throughout the world, not necessarily with terrorist devices but through accidents and industrial releases.
Media personnel could find themselves reporting on accidents, chemical spills, factory fires, radiological releases, natural disease outbreaks or a terrorist release of chemical or biological hazards or a dirty bomb. Understandably, media organisations may not completely recognise the hazard they are reporting on, or the short and long term health effects on the body.
