HAZWOPER Chain of Command

According to 29 CFR 1910.120(b)(2), the organizational structure part of the site program must establish the specific chain of command and specify the overall responsibilities of supervisors and employees.

The organizational structure must include, at a minimum, the following elements:
* A general supervisor who has the responsibility and authority to direct all hazardous waste operations
* A site safety and health supervisor who has the responsibility and authority to develop and implement the site safety and health plan and verify compliance
* All other personnel needed for hazardous waste site operations and emergency response and their general functions and responsibilities
* The lines of authority, responsibility, and communication

See http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_table=STANDARDS&p_id=9765

According to 29 CFR 1910.120(b)(2)(ii), the organizational structure must be reviewed and updated as necessary to reflect the current status of waste site operations.
