Abstract: Abstract: There has been little or no formalized training available within the Army for installation personnel to appropriately identify, handle, and dispose of hazardous materials generated during the renovation and/or demolition of Army buildings. As the Army’s new construction programs wind down, attention must be paid to operation, repair, and renovation of existing facilities — where hazardous materials are more likely to be encountered. An ad hoc, reactive approach to dealing with hazardous materials will adversely impact repair, renovation, and operation budgets and schedules while in-creasing the likelihood of regulatory noncompliance. Development of a training regimen was previously deferred but is now being addressed. Per direction from the Office of the Assistant Chief of Staff for Installation Management Facility Policy Division (DAIM-ODF), a Public Works Technical Bulletin, “Toxics Management,” was completed in 2014 and published through Headquarters, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. That publication provides guidance to address specific toxic and hazardous materials associated with buildings that are owned, leased, or otherwise controlled by the Department of the Army. For additional training documentation, this report captures a workshop-style training curriculum developed to enable installation operations and management personnel to identify, handle, and dispose of hazardous building materials in a safe, thorough, efficient, compliant, and economical manner.
