Abstract This code of practice applies to repair-work in sanitary landfills, to clean-up work of contaminated soils and buildings (but not to the removal of asbestos-containing material), to construction or demolition work on contaminated sites and to clean-up after a fire. It specifies measures to protect workers during the assessment of hazards posed by harmful substances before work is started and measures to protect workers during the work. The protective measures addressed include: access restriction, fire and explosion protection, first aid, medical supervision by the industrial physician, protection from accidents involving earthmoving equipment, protection from inhalation of harmful substances and the supply of personal protective equipment. Update of the 2002 code of practice with the same title (CIS 04-66).
