An example form is attached. Copies are also available from the District ECC; Notify the Department of Environmental Protection, State Police or National Response in the event of a spill; phone numbers are posted by facility phones; Federal Department of Transportation (USDOT) and Massachusetts Department of Public Safety requirements must be met. This includes the use of a USDOT shipping label for waste other than oil. Used Vehicle Filters Used oil, diesel and gasoline filters must be drained into a properly labeled hazardous waste container until the filter is free from flowing liquid. The liquid content from motor oil and diesel fuel filters must be drained into a designated waste oil drum. Gasoline, from gasoline filters, must be drained into a waste gasoline drum. Under no circumstances should the waste gasoline be mixed with waste oil. *Note: Prior to draining, used oil filters will be punctured from the top side, with a sharp device capable of penetrating the outer metal casing as well as penetrating an inner valve located inside the center of the filter. This will allow for trapped oil to completely drain out. Filters do not need to be drained for more than 24- hours. The drained filters must then be stored in a closeable drum, which has been designated and labeled for this purpose. The drum containing the used oil/diesel filters should be labeled as a non-hazardous waste. When the drums are filled with drained filters, the designated facility personnel shall notify the ECC and/or arrange for proper disposal/recycling.

8 1. Emergency Coordinator Each MassDOT facility which generates or accumulates hazardous wastes shall at all times have an emergency coordinator either on the facility premises, or, to the extent the facility's operations make this option appropriate, on call and available to respond to an emergency by reaching the facility within one hour. The emergency coordinator shall have the responsibility for coordinating all emergency response measures. This emergency coordinator shall be thoroughly familiar with all aspects of the facility's contingency plan, all operations and activities at the facility, the location and characteristics of waste handled, the location of all records within the facility, and the facility layout. The coordinator shall have access to all parts of the facility. In addition, this individual shall have the authority to spend or use whatever is necessary to carry out the contingency plan. The Emergency Coordinator for MassDOT hazardous waste facilities is the District Maintenance Engineer for the district in which the facility is located. If the DME is unavailable, the alternates listed in Section 2.0 by order of ranking shall serve as the Emergency Coordinator. 2. Emergency Contact List In the event of a Hazardous Materials/Waste emergency, personnel shall contact the Emergency Coordinator immediately, or, in the case of fire, explosion, or other lifethreatening emergency, as soon as possible after notifying local fire, police, ambulance and/or other Emergency First-Responder groups. Notifying personnel should continue calling each person on the contact list until the emergency coordinator or an alternate is reached. Report to the Emergency Coordinator the location and nature of the incident, type and estimated volume of materials involved, environmental impacts, and the identity of any other emergency services contacted. Follow the instructions of the Emergency Coordinator, and report back any new developments on a frequent basis. [ Insert site/district specific contacts list here.]

9 3. Available Spill Equipment and Resources 3.1 Description of Emergency Resources at Hazardous Waste Facilities MassDOT facilities which generate and/or accumulate hazardous wastes have spill kits on premises, in close proximity to but outside the hazardous waste accumulation area. The spill kits contain an assortment of absorbent booms and pads, plastic bags, personal protective clothing (tyvek suits, gloves) for use in containing a small spill of hazardous waste material. Supplies of granular absorbents, drain blocker pads, neoprene rubber dikes, brooms, shovels, waste accumulation drums, and other spill containment and cleanup equipment are also available at each facility, or can otherwise be mobilized from a nearby facility. 3.2 Site-Specific Emergency Equipment List The specific Emergency Equipment available to facility personnel in the event of a hazardous waste emergency incident, is presented in Attachment 1. The list shall be kept up-to-date and include the location and a physical description of each item on the list, and a brief outline of its capabilities. Equipment locations may be depicted on the site-specific Facility Environmental Compliance Maps to assist personnel and responders. [The following table shall be completed by the ECC for each facility, and be updated annually or whenever there is a change in equipment or related information. The list can be extended as needed but must include at a minimum those items already listed] Emergency Equipment List MassDOT [Facility Name/ID] [as of Date] Equipment Type Location at Facility Use/Capabilities 1. Spill Kit 2. Fire Extinguisher 3. First Aid Kit

10 4. Emergency Prevention Systems 4.1 Prevention of Fire, Explosion, or Chemical Reaction MassDOT maintenance facilities typically may generate and accumulate waste lubricating and hydraulic oils, diesel fuel, gasoline, and paint related materials, all of which are combustible or flammable. Hazardous wastes are accumulated either inside the facility maintenance garage on spill containment pallets (generally at VSQG facilities) in a designated location and separate from other materials, or; in an outdoor fire-rated hazardous waste shed with secondary containment and ventilation. To mitigate the potential for fire or explosion, MassDOT personnel must keep all waste containers tightly closed except when adding material to a waste container, strictly observe smoking bans, and ensure ignition sources such as welding torches are shut off when decanting hazardous waste materials. Non-hazardous oily rags and other absorbents are stored away from waste accumulation areas, in fire-resistant safety canisters which are emptied daily, to prevent spontaneous combustion. MassDOT facilities seldom if ever generate other hazardous waste materials that may be incompatible with the above routinely generated wastes. When special circumstance arise where a non-compatible waste is generated that may react with other waste materials (i.e. battery acid, alkaline materials, chlorine bleach, etc.) the material is moved to an isolated hazardous waste storage shed at the facility if available, self-transported to another facility for isolated storage subject to waste generator status, or immediately collected for transport to a TSD facility by a licensed waste hauler. 4.2 Hazardous Waste Loading/Unloading Safety Procedures During transfer of hazardous waste drums and other containers from garages to storage sheds, or from sheds to a TSD transport vehicle, all MassDOT and contractor personnel shall use proper drum lifting tools such as overhead drum clamps, drum lifting forks, drum dollies or other devices designed specifically for such purpose. Persons involved in container transfers should be outfitted with proper work attire including steel toe boots, work gloves, hard hat and eye protection. A spill kit or adequate supply of absorbent or containment materials should be near by in the event of a spill during transfer of containers. 4.3 Storm Water Pollution Prevention and Drainage Controls To prevent contamination of stormwater from hazardous wastes generated at MassDOT facilities, routine vehicle maintenance and repairs and other hazardous

11 waste generation activities are performed indoors whenever possible. When outdoor vehicle or equipment repairs are required, spill containment pads, buckets or other means to collect spillage must be employed. Hazardous waste containers are stored indoors and provided secondary containment in the event of a leaking container. Transfer of full hazardous waste containers from satellite accumulation areas to outdoor sheds, or from accumulation areas or sheds to a transport vehicle should only be performed in dry weather whenever possible. Hazardous waste accumulation sheds will be located as far from drainage structures or nearby receiving waters or wetlands as possible. Small Quantity Generator facilities which handle hazardous waste and which are not equipped with storm drains fitted with oil/grease traps will have readily available for deployment, drain-block pads made from Neoprene, latex, or other suitable material to seal off storm drains in the event of spill while transferring hazardous waste outdoors to or from accumulation areas. 4.4 Power Outage or Equipment failure Power outages would have no significant affect on routine MassDOT hazardous waste operations. Hazardous wastes at MassDOT facilities are not managed or processed via any mechanical equipment, therefore equipment failure has no bearing on MassDOT hazardous waste management. 4.5 Protection of the Public and the Environment during Emergencies MassDOT facilities are gated, and restricted from access by the general public. Hazardous wastes are stored at least 50 feet from the adjacent property boundaries as per state and federal requirements. Due to the limited volume and types of hazardous wastes generated and accumulated at MassDOT facilities, a hazardous waste emergency at the facility is unlikely to pose any threat to the general public. As indicated elsewhere in this plan, adequate spill containment materials, secondary containment, and fire/explosion-proof accumulation sheds are provided for the protection of the environment and public health and welfare. 4.6 Personnel Exposure Protection Persons engaged in Hazardous Waste operations, whether routine or emergency, shall wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment suited to the nature of the work being performed and the hazardous waste being generated or handled. This includes work coveralls, work gloves, eye protection and where appropriate, protective rubber gloves for equipment repair activities. Activities involving transfers of hazardous wastes to or from containers, or spill cleanup shall also require the use of heavy duty rubber gloves or work gloves with surgical latex

12 gloves as liners; coveralls, tyvek, or other splash protection, eye protection (full face protection if skin irritant). In the event of a fire involving hazardous wastes, or spills of highly flammable wastes such as gasoline, MassDOT personnel should evacuate the area and notify the Fire Department, the Emergency Coordinator and other necessary emergency services immediately. 5.0 Emergency Evacuation Procedures Most MassDOT facilities engaged in hazardous waste activities are small to large, open vehicle garages with few personnel. If an emergency occurs that would require evacuation of the buildings or facility, persons discovering the emergency should alert others in the garage by yelling an appropriate warning (i.e. Fire ) contact emergency services, and then if safe to do so, attempt to determine if anyone else is in the building that may not have heard the alert, and evacuate as required. A plan of the facility, showing all exits shall be posted at various highly visible locations throughout the facility. A hazardous waste emergency at a maintenance facility located at the District Administrative Headquarters, may result in evacuation of the administration building or the entire property. In such cases, the general emergency evacuation plan for the building should be implemented, and attached to this plan for reference.
