Título Health matrix - toxic waste isolation
Información bibliográfica Jan. 1982, Vol.43. No.1, p.1-7. Illus. 22 ref.
Resumen A health matrix used to protect the community and workers during removal of 800,000 cubic yards of chemical waste and contaminated soil surrounding a hexachlorocyclopentadiene plant to isolation in a clay-lined vault is described. Potential exposures were determined by collection of information on the chemicals present and their toxicity and by qualitative analyses of site samples. 7 potentially dangerous chlorinated hydrocarbons were identified. A hygiene protocol was developed before the waste was moved and medical screening was carried out before and during the work. Personal monitoring was used to determine significant changes in exposure during the move.
