Federal and state regulations require a site-specific health and safety plan for government required clean-up operations at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites or initial investigations at sites before the presence or absence of hazardous substances has been determined. This also includes clean-up operations at sites covered by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, sites under voluntary clean-up requirements and operations involving hazardous waste that are conducted at treatment, storage, disposal (TSD) facilities (see 29 CFR 1910.120(a), 1926.65(a) or applicable state requirements).
A Health and Safety Plan is typically required by federal, state or local law. In addition to Federal OSHA regulations, 24 states, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands have OSHA-approved health and safety state plans. Many states have adopted identical standards to Federal OSHA regulations. However, some states may have adopted different standards in specific topic areas and may have different enforcement policies.
A Health and Safety Program covers employees involved in hazardous waste operations. The program is required to be written and be designed to identify, evaluate, and control safety and health hazards, and provide for emergency response for hazardous waste operations. The program addresses the organizational structure, comprehensive work plan, safety and health training program, medical surveillance program, standard operating procedures for safety and health, and interface between general program and site specific activities. The site safety and health plan, which does need not to repeat standard operating procedures, addresses the safety and health hazards of each phase of site operation and include the requirements and procedures for employee protection. This plan needs to be on site.
