RAMS General Work Plan

The work plans prepared for RAMS projects to be performed by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers personnel consist of two documents, the RAMS Site Safety and Health Plan (SSHP) and the RAMS Work Plan. The RAMS SSHP discusses all of the safety requirements related to the RAMS projects. The RAMS Work Plan contains a more complete discussion of the RAMS program, along with a thorough discussion of:

  • sampling requirements;

  • field quality control;

  • chemical data quality objectives;

  • project organization and quality control responsibility;

  • laboratory analytical and preparation procedures;

  • sample collection, handling and documentation procedures;

  • preventative maintenance procedures;

  • calibration procedures and frequency;

  • corrective action;

  • data reduction;

  • standard operating procedures; and

  • field equipment manuals.

A brief Site Specific Addendum (SSA) will be prepared for each of the specific project sites, will reference the general Work Plan and SSHP, and will contain any additional procedures, chemical analyses, safety requirements, etc. that are not specifically identified in the general work plans. This approach will greatly reduce costs associated with preparation of work plans for these projects and increase the funds available to perform the field work and prepare reports. The SSA will describe the media, locations, analyses, frequencies, and techniques associated with the major field tasks for that project and will be used in conjunction with the RAMS Work Plan.
