The health and safety program for personnel working at McClellan Air Force Base McAFB, California, consists of a base site safety plan SSP and task specific amendments. The base SSP contains general information that applies to all or most areas of the site. The base ssp contains the project description, personnel responsibilities, site hazards, personal protective equipment PPE, air monitoring guidelines, site control, decontamination procedures, and an emergency response plan. Predominant functions at McAFB have been to manage, maintain, and repair aircrafts, missiles, space vehicles, electronics, and communication equipment. These operations have required the use of toxic and hazardous materials. Some of the hazardous materials that have been used or generated on the base include industrial solvents and caustic cleaners, electroplating waste heavy metals, oils contaminated with polychlorinated biphenyls, contaminated jet fuels, low-level radioactive wastes, unused chemicals, oils and lubricants. Characterization recovery and remediation of areas affected by waste disposal practices are ongoing. Contaminated drill cuttings and purge water will be generated during field activities. Purge water will be disposed of at the industrial waste water treatment plant IWTP or ground water treatment plant. Drill cuttings and contaminated soils will be handled in accordance with the McAFB Soils Management Plan.
