Abstract
The NIOSH program concept memorandum for hazardous wastes is presented. The program will focus on producing a series of publications that identify occupational safety and health hazards and on making recommendations for protecting workers who are involved in hazardous waste site investigation and cleanup operations, and in environmental emergency responses. The immediate products of the program are intended to provide federal and state officials and industry personnel with concise reference information on what is currently known about occupational hazards associated with uncontrolled hazardous waste site investigations, cleanup operations as well as environmental emergency responses. Proposed assignments to be carried out as part of the program include: reviewing hazards associated with toxic waste sites; respiratory protection at hazardous waste sites; other personal protective equipment such as protective clothing; engineering safeguards; environmental and personal monitoring systems; model work practices; medical screening and health surveillance programs; developing a model curriculum for hazardous waste site managers and workers; and developing an emergency response team for dealing with environmental emergencies.
