The RCRA corrective action process consists of three primary activities: characterizing the release, selecting a remedy from identified alternatives, and implementing the selected remedy until the desired remediation goals are achieved. To design a process capable of collecting the information necessary to achieve these primary objectives, the HAZWOPER employer relies not only on this guidance document but others prepared by the EPA which describe all aspects of the corrective action process.
Plan States (approved by U.S. OSHA) must have standards at least as stringent as the Federal HAZWOPER training requirements. These Plan States may have additional training requirements.
