As a result of the passing of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) in 1976 and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) in 1980, numer ous jobs were created in the hazardous waste industry. In the process of creating these jobs, another dilemma had been created. Laws to protect the workers’ health and safety were lacking, thereby putting this group at the mercy of their employer’s safety policies. This void was addressed in 1986 when the President signed the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act (SARA; Chapter 2, Section 2.1.1) into law, which addresses the need to protect employees from exposure to hazardous wastes. Specifi c safety requirements are outlined under 29 CFR 1910.120.
