S. SITE CONTROL
Site control zones will be established,asnecessaryarotnd areas that present physical, chemical,
and/or radiological hazards. The SHSO will consult with the RCT'prior to establishing work zones
when radioactive matcrialcontaiination is involved. The SHSO wili monitor the implementation
of the required site control work rules and will report any deviations from the prescribed practices
to the Project Manager or stop work, as appropriate.
The work area of operations for this project will be control led to prevent unauthorized entry.
"HAZWOPER" signs will be erected to warn unauthorized personnel that access to the work site is
limited. The following sections describe the situations that will require the establishment of site
control zones. For a map of the site, see the associated WP.
8.1 EXCLUSION ZONE
The exclusion zone is the area where the greatest potential exists for exposure to site chemical,
radiological, and physical hazards. Exclusion zones will he established by each field crew around
the wellss, areas of heavy equipment use, all activities where chemical/radiological contamination
is a potential hazard support vehicless, and the equipment cleaning area. Traffic cones may be used
to designate the work zones in ameas where there is limited potential for entry by unauthorized
persons. Formal barricaded work zones will be established when required to prohibit non-project
personnel from entering the area. Traffic cones will be placed around parked vehicles on roadways
if field operations may obstruct the road. An entry and exit checkpoint will be visually defined to
identify the area as a HAZWOPER site and to regulate the flow of personnel and equipment.
Additional signs may include "High Noise Area," as appropriate. The number of people and
equipment will be minimized to control physical hazards and the spread of contamination.
The following standard rules will apply to all entries into the work area-
" All personnel will wear the prescribed level of protective clothing.
" All items and related paraphernalia intended to be placed on the face or in the month (e.g.,
cigarettes, lighters, matches, chewing tobacco, food, or cosmetics.) are prohibited.
* All personnel will follow the buddy system.
.2 CONTAMINATION REDUCTION ZONE
A contamination reduction zone will be established, as necessary, outside the exclusion zone to
provide a transition from and a buffer between the contamination area and the clean area. An entry
and exit checkpoint will be visually defined at the periphery of the zone to regulate the flow of
personnel and equipment. The entry and exit checkpoint and the perimeter of the zone will be
delineated with the use of cones, ropes or barricade tape and signs.
