Identify the impacted community; what are the characteristics of the working population in the facility? What are the characteristics of the community in the neighborhood where the facility is located?
Explain its production; what does it manufacture?
Identify its processes and hazards; what type of processes does it involve and what type of occupational hazards are workers potentially exposed to?
Describe its environmental impacts; what resources does it use for raw materials and energy? What wastes/pollution does it generate?
