Between March 1990 and November 1992, a sample of 27 field and support facilities operated by the Indiana Department of Transportation were visited by staff of the Environmental Management and education Program, School of Civil Engineering, Purdue University, for the purpose of conducting workplace assessments to ascertain the department’s compliance with federal and state environmental and worker protection regulations. Thirty-eight different department operations and nine different employee functions were observed and analyzed. There were compliance areas at every facility visited which needed strengthening. A total of 222 recommendations for strengthening those areas are included in the research report. The department has implemented or has made plans to implement most of the recommendations concerning environmental compliance areas. The same is expected with regard to the occupational safety and health compliance areas.
