This Site-Specific Health and Safety Plan SSHP was prepared by the AhtnaClearwater Environmental Joint Venture JV for the Galena Landfill project. This plan will be used in conjunction with the Corporate Health and Safety Program, the Work Plan, the Project Sampling and Analysis Plan SAP, the Quality Assurance Program Plan QAPP and various other submittals to guide its field personnel and contract laboratories in safe execution of activities associated with this project. Work performed will be in accordance with applicable federal and state safety regulations. The Corps Safety Manual, EM 385-1-1, will be used where a specific topic is not covered in this plan. The JV is committed to the protection of its employees and physical assets. In fulfilling this commitment, the JV provides and maintains a safe and healthy working environment through management commitment and common sense application of regulatory standards. The JV strives to foresee and eliminate hazards which could result in injury, illness, damage or property loss. Accidents are reduced through proper management, combined with active employee involvement. Careful development of work practices, on-going education and thorough contingency planning help assure protection of employees, our property, the public and the environment. JV policy in the form of a Corporate Safety and Health Program mandates that each SSHP be completed to the extent possible at the time, approved by the client and discussed with the crew prior to working at the site. As items arise that are not included in this plan, an Activity Hazard Analysis see form in Appendix B will be completed and discussed with the crew prior to the work. Reading, understanding and complying with this SSHP is mandatory for all workers contractors and third-party personnel entering the project work area.
