reporting to the RCT for frisking or monitoring themselves for radioactive contamination prior
to exiting the control zone;
* wearing PPE and personnel monitoring devices where required by RWPs, signs, procedures,
this HASP, or by RCO personnel and sporting immediately the loss, damage, or unexpected
exposure of personnel monitoring devices or off-scale readings of self-reading dosimeters to
* maintaining radiological exposure as low as reasonably achievable;
" notifying tCO personnel and their supervisor of oWfsite occupational radiation exposures, any
medically administered radiological exposures, and avoiding exceeding radiological
Administrative Control Levels; and
" discussing health and safety concerns with their supervisor and the S15.
. HAZARD ASSESSMENT
The purpose of the hazard assessment is to identify and assess potential hazards tat may be
encountered by site personnel conducting removal action field activities and to prescribe controls
fur these activities. The scheduled tasks include excavation of lead-contaminated soil, removal of
the concrete trench and macadam paths, verification sampling, grading and revegeuation.
The primary hazards associated with this work at Former YS-60 Firing Ranges are lead
ccntaminatedsoil and physical hazardsassociated withequipment. Chemical andradiological hazard
potential is very low. The primary contaminant is lead and no other contarninants or media have been
detected on the firing range site, Table 3.1 provides a complete listing of potential hazards, Table
3.2 list the permits required for the project, Table 3.3 provides a detailed hazard analysis, and Table
3.4 provides a complete listing of potential contaminants. Material safety data sheets will be
obtained for any chemical or other hazardous material brought on-site solely for these activities and
each material will be included in the Hazard Communication training session for workers involved
in the tasks described in this HASP. Personnel shaft be informed of project hazards and the contents
of this HASP prior to beginning work.
3.1 POTENTIAL CONTAMINANTS
Thepotential site contaminantsandthe hazardous chemicals tobeused on siteare listed in Table
3.4. If additional contaminants or hzardouschemicals, which pose a new orsignificant hazard, are
identified prior to or during site activities, they will be addressed in Field Change Orders.
Contaminants listed are based on historical data and existing characterization and monitoring data
Contaminants listed in Table 3.4 were selected based on the following criteria:
- known human carcinogen;
" radiation contamination not likely to be encountered; however as a contingency, during Waste
