Emergency Deployment Generic Health and Safety Plan (HASP)

This Plan has been prepared in accordance with the requirements of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Regulations (29 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 1910 and 29 CFR 1926) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Office of Solid Waste and Emergency Response (OSWER) Directive 9355.3-01. The primary goal of this Work Plan and HASP is to define policies and procedures outlining safe and healthful working conditions for personnel and the public during field investigations and assessments. This Plan is intended to encompass most health and safety procedures that may be used in current and future investigations/responses, with the understating that this template will be modified with incident specific information before being utilized. All personnel performing field activities will be required to read and understand the incident specific version of this Plan and follow the policies and procedures. A copy of the incident specific Plan will be maintained in all vehicles assigned to the field team. This Plan is developed for specific conditions, purposes, and personnel and must be amended if conditions change.
