Hazardous Waste

The US American Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently
updated the computer software for generating a site-specific health and safety
plan (HASP) for hazardous waste sites required under the Hazardous Waste
Operations and Emergency Response standard. The e-HASP2 program is more
practical and user friendly to health and safety professionals for providing
"model" language acceptable to OSHA in preparing a site's HASP. It also
features an updated chemical database and embedded decision logic to assist in
identifying hazards associated with site-specific contaminants and choosing
effective site controls for worker protection.

The e-HASP2 software includes fifteen chapters and these are listed below.

  • Organizational Structure
  • Job Hazard Analysis
  • Site Control
  • Training Program
  • Medical Surveillance Requirements
  • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Exposure Monitoring
  • Thermal Stress
  • Spill Containment Program
  • Decontamination Program
  • Emergency Response Plan
  • Standard Operating Procedures
  • Confined Space Programs
  • Hot Work
  • Lockout/Tagout
