A basic yet comprehensive guide to working safely on hazardous waste remediation sites, this book can be used to educate workers and also as a quick reference source for workers on the job. It covers the rights and responsibilities of workers, medical surveillance, hazard recognition, toxicology, engineering controls, safe work practices, and safe use of field equipement. It then breaks into sections which cover monitoring and sampling instruments, respirators, chemical protective clothing and equipment, sampling, groundwater principles and monitoring considerations, emergency procedures, transporting hazardous wastes, decontamination, and site safety plans.
