September 23, 2010 - When workers handle hazardous waste
and/or hazardous materials, training is not just a good idea, it’s the
law. According to the EPA, workers who handle hazardous waste must be
trained annually. Environmental Resource Center’s DOT and RCRA Annual
Update and Refresher course is the perfect way to meet both your annual
review and DOT 49 CFR recurrent training requirements as well as learn
about new requirements that have been enacted over the past year.
Individuals who are expected to stop, contain, and clean up releases of hazardous
materials are required to have 8 hours of annual refresher training. Environmental
Resource Center’s eight-hour refresher course satisfies the annual training
requirement and will provide you with the "refresher" you need to be fully ready
to respond when needed.
For those who must implement the provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health
Administration’s (OSHA) regulations in the workplace, a two day course is offered
which will provide instruction on a variety of general industry safety and health
standards, including walking and working surfaces, means of egress and fire
protection, hazardous materials, hazard communication, machine guarding, respiratory
protection, lockout/tagout, confined spaces, and recordkeeping.
Environmental Resource Center, the leading provider of environmental and safety
training, will present the training in Cary at its headquarters, 101 Center Pointe
Dr. on October 5 - 8, 2010.
Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response 8-Hr. Refresher Course will be
