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.
“A Talk to Teachers” by James Baldwin was a pitch to change the views of society’s outlook on racial discrimination, it emphasised the flaws in society as a whole and how we were all the same regardless of our colour of skin. The quote ‘But on the other hand he is also assured by his country and his countrymen that he has never contributed anything to civilization – that his past is nothing more than a record of humiliations gladly endured.’ Highlights the flaws in society, how they are welcomed on a misconception, how on the surface they are shown to be treated equally but actually they are regarded as lower class people who are portrayed as not of contributed to the world in which they live. In conclusion, education is a broad term, it could be seen as an elixir to life, it provides individuals with knowledge of how to prosper and help them to better themselves. Education isn’t just textbook study though, it has numerous applications. To know right from wrong, morals and etiquette. Knowing how to use the knowledge you learnt from the textbooks and then applying it. That is the key to education. How to use the knowledge you know and adapt it into a day-to-day scenario.
