Abstract

Based on a research project and WERF workshop, this report provides valuable insight into protecting the safety and health of treatment facility workers. Results of the research project demonstrate how control methods used by production facilities, such as chemical and petroleum industries, can be transferred to wastewater treatment facilities to improve safety controls. There is also a discussion of research needs in this area. Published by WERF. 180 pages. Soft cover.

Originally funded as WERF project 97-HHE-3.
