||For evaluating the hazards posed by contaminated sites, air and soil samples are taken and analyzed. The organization of protective measures for this work involves the collection of information on the history of the site to get clues as to what kind of contaminants are to be found. Sites are classified according to the estimated toxicity and concentration of the substances present. Four classes are to be distinguished; they require different protective equipment such as different types of protective clothing, gloves, shoes and respirators.
