This volume brings together leaders from industry and government, as well as leading scholars from economics, law, engineering, psychology, and sociology who have done research on the problems associated with the transportation of hazardous materials and wastes (hazmats) to produce a set of integrated insights and understandings of the problems associated with the transportations of hazmats. The papers in this volume, originally presented at Hazmat Transport '91: A National Conference on the Transportation of Hazardous Materials and Wastes, deal with issues associated with the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act of 1975 (HMTA), the original act passed to regulate the transportation of hazardous materials, and the Hazardous Materials Transportation Uniform Safety Act of 1990 (HMTUSA). The book begins by explaining some of the important aspects of HMTUSA and other recent legislation dealing with the transport of hazmats. The book then considers the important ways in which industry has been attempting to deal with the risks involved with the transportation of hazardous materials. Finally, the book includes discussions of the law and economics, regulation, and cost issues involved in this subject.Moses, Leon N. is the author of 'Transportation of Hazardous Materials Issues in Law, Social Science, and Engineering', published 1993 under ISBN 9780792393405 and ISBN 0792393406.
