    Remediation of hazardous waste may require the application of new technologies.

    These technologies are usually designed by experts who know very little about safety and health issues.

    A user-friendly, easily accessible system that is devised to assist designers during the design phase by pointing out the different downfalls of their design with respect to safety and health issues and impacts, can dramatically improve hazardous waste remediation safety, reduce costs, and most importantly, reduce the chances of injuries and fatalities associated with such technologies.

    For easy accessability, the system should be online via the internet.

    Hence, this web-based consultant was designed using a knowledge-based expert system.

    The system was initially designed by implementing a simple machine, a dithc-digger.

    All hazardous events related to using a ditch-digger were documented into the rules of the ES.

    Ultimately, the final version of this system will allow designers to enter and analyze their designs in terms of safety and health.

    Recommendations will be provided to reduce the potential for hazard exposure.

    This tool should dramatically enhance the safety of new technologyies enhance the safety of new technologies at a fraction of the currently incurred costs.
