When workers handle hazardous waste or ship 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, and the federal DOT requires that workers involved in the shipment of hazardous materials be trained at least every three years. If your facility generates hazardous waste in the state of Texas, you must comply with the Texas hazardous and industrial waste regulations, as well as federal regulations that have not yet been incorporated into the Texas rules.
