Columbia Southern Unit VI Hazardous Materials Transportation Essay

Unit VI Essay

Your company has been contracted to assess and cleanup a site that previously had a manufacturing facility for an

organochlorine pesticide (i.e., aldrin, chlordane, dieldrin, eldrin, or heptachlor). You are tasked with shipping 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 pesticides detailed in this

question. Describe how you would prepare for transport of these materials and ensure proper shipping documentation

based on DOT regulations (hazard class, descriptions, labels, markings, and placards). Describe the importance of having

these regulations in place when transporting hazardous materials.

In the event that there is an emergency release of the material while being transported, describe the chemical properties,

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 FS professionals to

assess and mitigate workplace hazards related to organochlorine pesticides during the assessment and cleanup phases of

the project.

Your essay must be at least one page in length. You are required to cite the relevant SDS in your response as well as at

least one other sources. All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced. Paraphrased and/or quoted materials

must have accompanying citations in APA format.
