Hazmat Training Comes to Cary

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.
