EPIcode has been specially developed to provide emergency response personnel, emergency planners, and health and safety professionals with a software tool to aid them in evaluating the atmospheric release of toxic substances.
EPIcode is a full 32-bit Windows software package that will run on an IBM PC, or compatible. Operating systems supported are Windows 95/98/00/NT and XP.
EPIcode is completely menu-driven and easy to use. Results from EPIcode atmospheric release calculations can be displayed or printed in tabular form or as graphic plots showing the downwind centerline concentration or concentration contours. EPIcode contours can also be displayed on any .bmp image, e.g., satellite maps, map photos, etc.
EPIcode contains a library of over 2,000 chemical substances along with the associated exposure levels accepted by various professional organizations and regulatory agencies. These include all of the current American Industrial Hygiene Association Emergency Response Planning Guidelines (ERPGs), Department of Energy Temporary Emergency Exposure Limits (TEELs), and EPA Acute Exposure Guideline Limits (AEGLs). The EPIcode Library also contains information on substances listed in the Threshold Limit Values for Chemical Substances and Physical Agents and Biological Exposure Indices published by the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. IDLH (Immediately Dangerous to Life or Health) data are also included when available.
Substance information is easily retrieved from the library by selecting either the substance name or common synonym, the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Number, or Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) Number.
EPIcode uses the same algorithms and methodologies outlined in EPA document titled "Technical Guidance for Hazards Analysis -Emergency Planning for Extremely Hazardous Substances," U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Emergency Management Agency, and U.S. Department of Transportation, December 1987. .
