Los PCB han sido identificados como un probable carcinógeno para los humanos. Si se le pide a su centro de servicios que recoja un equipo que se sospecha PUEDE contener PCB, haga que lo prueben en campo ANTES de recogerlo.

Near Miss? Near Hit? Close Call? No one ever wants to hear these phrases. These unplanned incidents have the potential of causing serious damage or injury. A good number of these narrow escapes come from a lack of defining proper processes and procedures. Too many people think “no harm, no foul.” Unfortunately, this does not address the root issue.
