I would like to be first to welcome you to the newest topic on the BBS and to say thanks in advance to all who come here for answers or to contribute. We look forward to challenging and interesting questions covering a broad spectrum of topics from asbestos to land use, to zinc. Whether you are faced with a hazardous material, oil tank decomissioning, or just need to know how to safely complete a task, this is where to come. Due to the potential complexity and legal nature of topics, we also sport the longest disclaimer on the board.
Keep in mind there may not be one right answer to a question, and debate is welcomed. Many of the contributors to this board are long-time professionals with experience in dealing with safety, environmental and hazadous materials. In home improvement, knowledge is power. This topic is intended to cut through misinformation and fear, to provide the tools necessary to deal with a problem.
Topic ideas include: hazardous materials and alternatives use, materials removal and disposal; personal protective equipment; managing health risks within and around the home; ladders and scaffolds, power tool safety, fire safety, groundwater, storm, flood and earthquake planning, building and environmental permits, waste and septic discharges, wetland, forest and, vegetation management. These topics are as important to understand in our homes as they are in the workplace.
