Methodology for analysing toxic chemical risks to animal health
|Author(s) :||Y. Suárez Fernández et.al|
As a contribution to community-based disaster management, a methodology was designed for analysing toxic chemical risks to animal health, in line with national and international approaches to these issues. The methodology includes: hazard identification, risk assessment of the animal population according to its degree of vulnerability and other communication and risk management tools. Its validation in thirteen Cuban communities shows that the methodology provides the necessary technical basis for formulating and implementing disaster risk mitigation plans in compliance with current legislation. It also facilitates decision-making for disaster risk control in a community by acting as an early warning mechanism for toxic chemical risks to public health and the environment and by promoting multi-sector action in the field of veterinary public health.
