Protecting Health and Safety

Honeywell is committed to protecting the health and safety of onsite workers and the surrounding public. All construction workers are trained to comply with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements and participate in daily safety meetings. Honeywell will implement a detailed Health and Safety Plan approved by EPA and NJDEP. Every site worker is authorized to stop construction work if he or she observes unsafe conditions.

Air Quality, Odors, and Dust Prevention

A major component of the Health and Safety Plan is an air quality monitoring program to protect workers and the surrounding public. The air quality monitoring program addresses odors, dust prevention, and best practices to meet government air quality health standards.

Air Monitoring; Results Posted on Project Website

Five background air samples were collected over two weeks in October. This background air data-collected before any intrusive, below-ground activities begins-will be used to quantify the existing levels of any dust and volatile organic compounds already in the air. It also will be used by the agencies to adjust action and alert levels in the air monitoring plan. Action levels, which are set above the background levels, define the steps the contractor will take to meet the plan's air requirements.

During implementation of the remedy in 2017, the air monitoring system will include multiple fixed and mobile units around the site, placed to provide coverage for wind coming from any direction. Air will be monitored for dust and site-related contaminants to safeguard air quality at the perimeter of the work zones. Air quality monitoring sensors will alert at a low "warning level" to prevent dust or site-related contaminants from reaching the government action levels. A full-time air quality specialist will monitor the system and is authorized to stop work if necessary.

Air monitoring results, which are collected in real-time, will be reviewed by technicians against air quality criteria established for the project, and will be posted on the project website in about 24 hours.

Air samples also will be collected for laboratory analysis of individual chemicals. The results will supplement the real-time air monitoring to confirm that the surrounding community is not exposed to emissions from the site above allowable levels during the implementation of the remedy. Two air samples will be collected per week during the first month. If results confirm the real-time air monitoring data, then one air sample will be collected per week for the duration of the project.
