Popis

Treatment work in contaminated sites falls under the bracket of occupational safety and health (OSH), environmental protection and (in some cases) construction work. The guide provides information on chemical risks (e.g. hazardous substances that may be found in different types of contaminated sites), monitoring worker exposure, risk assessment and protective measures. It does not explicitly address vulnerable workers such as migrants or ethnical minorities, but such workers are often those working in landfills and contaminated sites.
