Essay

Contingency Plan

 

 

 

 

 

You are a newly hired environmental manager at a small college in the United States. You are asked to write a hazardous waste management plan for your facility, a Large Quality Generator (LQG). The college creates waste via chemistry laboratories, research activities, and maintenance activities. Using your textbook, the CSU Online Library, and other resources, describe the basic components of your plan and why each is needed. You are not required to write the entire plan, however, you must identify the key sections of the plan and why you would include them.

 

 

 

 

 

Refer to the requirements in Chapter 12, pages 379-390, of your textbook as a reference for the essay. In your essay, be sure to address the following topics:

 

 

 

 

 

1. how you will manage hazardous waste on-site,

 

 

 

2. how you will address emergency response,

 

 

 

3. personnel training,

 

 

 

4. reporting and recordkeeping,

 

 

 

5. permitting,

 

 

 

6. containment buildings and facility requirements, and

 

 

 

7. planning and notification.

 

 

 

 

 

You do not have to address requirements for specific chemicals. The goal for this assignment is to research and discuss the RCRA requirements for an LQG. Your essay must be a minimum of three pages in length, not including cover page and references. At least one reference must be from the CSU Online Library. Feel free to go to the Internet and search out examples of college and university HWMPs, however, make sure to cite them in your essay.

 

 

 

 

 

All sources used, including the textbook, must be referenced; paraphrased and quoted material must have accompanying citations, and cited per APA guidelines.
