HAZWOPER Site Characterization: What Is It?

HAZWOPER site characterization and analysis identifies the safety and health hazards on a hazardous waste site so that they can be controlled. Site characterization must be done before cleanup begins on a hazardous waste site and conditions must be monitored after site characterization to detect changes.

Every site has specific hazards and no two sites are alike. Site Characterization helps in identifying site specific hazards and determines hazard controls to be used, as well as Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to be used by the employees entering the site.
