The Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard, or HAZWOPER, was enacted by OSHA in 1990. It is designed to protect workers involved in the initial stages of a chemical release emergency, the subsequent clean-up of a site once the emergency has been stabilized, and the clean-up of chemical contamination from the country’s past industrial legacy.
Over time, a wide variety of unexploded ordnance (UXO) from multiple countries and eras have collected on Fort Sill’s impact ranges.
Both the F-16 and the space shuttle use hydrazine fuel, a rare and extremely corrosive, poisonous and flammable liquid that presents a unique set of hazards to emergency responders.
