In the past decade, industry, government, and the general public have become increasingly
aware of the need to respond to the hazardous waste problem, which has grown steadily over the
past 40 years. In 1980, Congress passed the Comprehensive Environmental Response,
Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) — the Superfund law-to provide for “liability,
compensation, cleanup, and emergency response for hazardous substances released into the
environment and the cleanup of inactive waste disposal sites.”

This manual is a guidance document for managers responsible for occupational safety and health
programs at inactive hazardous waste sites. It assumes a basic knowledge of science and
experience in occupational safety and health. It is the product of a four-agency committee (the
National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health [NIOSH], the Occupational Safety and
Health Administration [OSHA], the U.S. Coast Guard [USCG], and the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency [EPA]) mandated by CERCLA section 301(f) to study the problem of protecting
the safety and health of workers at hazardous waste sites, and by CERCLA section 111(c)(6) to
develop a program to protect the health and safety of employees involved in response to
hazardous substance releases, removals, or remedial actions.
