Your company has been contracted to assess and cleanup a site that previously had a manufacturing facilityfor an organochlorine pesticide (i.e., aldrin, chlordane, dieldrin, eldrin, or heptachlor). You are tasked withshipping these wastes off-site to a treatment, storage, disposal facility (TSDF) for disposal.Review the information found in the 16-point GHS SDS for at least two of the organochlorine pesticidesdetailed in this question. Describe how you would prepare for transport of these materials and ensure propershipping documentation based on DOT regulations (hazard class, descriptions, labels, markings, andplacards). Describe the importance of having these regulations in place when transporting hazardousmaterials.In the event that there is an emergency release of the material while being transported, describe the chemicalproperties, uses, and ill effects that first responders may encounter upon arrival to the scene.Summarize the information found in the SDS, and explain how that information prepares EHS and FSprofessionals to assess and mitigate workplace hazards related to organochlorine pesticides during theassessment and cleanup phases of the project.
