An incident is any event that requires emergency response to protect life or property. OSHA’s HAZWOPER standard requires all organizations that handle hazardous materials to use the Incident Command System (ICS). The ICS is a component of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) that provides a standard approach for incident management. ICS allows for the integration of facilities, equipment, personnel, procedures, and communication systems within a common organizational structure. ICS enables a coordinated response among various agencies, both public and private, and it establishes common processes for planning and managing resources. This module describes all aspects of the incident command system.
