A Technical Safety Requirement (TSR) Violation occurred when Waste Disposition Operations personnel failed to meet a Specific Administrative Control while performing a waste drum receipt at the 7572 CH-TRU Waste Storage Facility. The TSR requires that vehicles associated with a staging activity shall be parked a minimum of 25 feet from waste drums with the engines shut off unless the drums are in a closed Sealand or Intermodal. The Supervisor of the drum receipt activity failed to have the tractor portion of the tractor-trailer rig disconnected from the trailer prior to having the Intermodal opened for the drum receipt activity. As a result, the tractor was within 25 feet of waste drums in an open Intermodal.
