Technical Guide: Short-Term Chemical Exposure Guidelines for Deployed Military Personnel [open pdf - 841KB]
This Technical Guide (TG) is a tool to assist deployed military personnel when assessing the potential health risks associated with chemical exposures. Specifically, this TG is designed to assist the military health services personnel in their efforts to determine the severity of these potential health risks within a framework that is consistent with other military risk management decisions. Military health services personnel should, therefore, evaluate the information in this TG within the context of their own experiences in determining why, when, and how the information applies to a situation. This TG is designed to correspond with the Department of the Army's Field Manual (FM) 100- 14, Risk Management. Other services have similar military operational risk management guidance. FM 100-14 and the other military risk management guidance apply across a wide range of military operations. This guidance explains the principles, procedures, and responsibilities to successfully integrate the risk management process to conserve combat power and resources to allow individuals to make informed, conscious decisions to accept risks at reasonable levels. TG 230A allows such decisions to be made regarding health risks associated with chemical exposures.
