A manufacturing facility for an organochlorine pesticide

Your company has been contracted to assess and cleanup a site that previously had a manufacturing facility
for an organochlorine pesticide (i.e., aldrin, chlordane, dieldrin, eldrin, or heptachlor). You are tasked with
shipping these wastes off-site to a treatment, storage, disposal facility (TSDF) for disposal.
Review the information found in the 16-point GHS SDS for at least two of the organochlorine pesticides
detailed in this question. Describe how you would prepare for transport of these materials and ensure proper
shipping documentation based on DOT regulations (hazard class, descriptions, labels, markings, and
placards). Describe the importance of having these regulations in place when transporting hazardous
In the event that there is an emergency release of the material while being transported, describe the chemical
properties, uses, and ill effects that first responders may encounter upon arrival to the scene.
Summarize the information found in the SDS, and explain how that information prepares EHS and FS
professionals to assess and mitigate workplace hazards related to organochlorine pesticides during the
assessment and cleanup phases of the project.
