Hazardous Waste and Material Standards

  • Each hazardous site must be examined and evaluated for its characteristics before workers are allowed entry. This will pre decide antihazard method and procedure.
  • Prior training on specific hazardous material must always be undertaken.
  • Besides engineering controls to restrict exposure risk the workers must use personal protective gear and equipment.
  • A site control programme must identify zonal plan, communication point, and station for medical assistance. Out of several inculcated work habits in hazardous environment teamwork must take precedence.
  • Periodical medical examination of workers handling hazardous
  • Waste material is required to be arranged.
  • The workers leaving the hazard filled space must follow decontamination procedure.
  • There must be contingency plans to deal with emergency situation in which coordination of all concerned department of the company and any outside agency must be ensured.
