Dear Mr. Miller:

This is in response to your inquiry concerning paragraph (q)(11) of the final standard on Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (29 CFR 1910.120). Please accept my apology for the delay in this reply.

The specific question is whether contractors who routinely work at a plant facility can meet the requirements of 29 CFR 1910.120(q)(11)(ii) versus the more lengthy requirements of (q)(11)(i). Contract personnel assigned full time at a plant facility are considered "plant or workplace employees" for the purposes of (q)(11)(ii) when such workers are conducting clean-up in areas they routinely work. Contractors brought in specifically for clean-up are covered by (q)(11)(i).

I hope this information is helpful.


Patricia K. Clark, Director
Directorate of Compliance Programs
