Contents Notes
The full report was developed as an aid in evaluating costs associated with worker health and safety at hazardous waste cleanup sites. Previoiusly available cost data were inadequate to identify health and safety cost consistently. Six hypothetical cost scenarios were developed based on composites of existing sites. Experienced cleanup contractors were requested to prepare detailed cost estimates for the six scenarios. Cost estimates included both the base construction costs that would be incurred if no hazardous wastes were involved and the costs for each of four degrees of hazard. The hardous conditions were patterned after the four levels of personal protection that have been established for workers on hazardous waste sites. The impacts of temperature variations were also estimated. Separate cost estimates were obtained for transportation and disposal. Transportation costs were obtained for transportation and disposal. Transportation costs were estimated based on information from transportation firms. Disposal costs were obtained from an existing report.
