Due to the unprecedented extent of the Gulf Coast oil spill, the need for industry professionals with Hazwoper training is steadily growing. OSHA requires Hazwoper training for any personnel that participate in the oil spill clean-up operations.
Personnel who are expected to stop, contain, and clean up releases of all types of hazardous materials are required to have 24 hours of initial training. Personnel who are involved in clean-ups at waste sites, including Superfund sites, RCRA corrective action sites, or voluntary clean-ups involving hazardous substances must have 40 hours of initial instruction.
Environmental Resource Center, the leading provider of environmental and safety training, will present the mandatory training in Cary, NC on June 21-23 for the 24 Hr. Hazwoper and June 21-25, 2010 for the 40 Hr. Hazwoper. Classes begin at 8am and end at 5pm each day.
Personnel that complete this course, will receive a Hazwoper wallet card, a training certificate, one year of free Answerline service and handbook updates, and a free subscription to Environmental Resource Center’s safety and environmental e-newsletters.
Registration for the mandatory training is available by calling 919-469-1585, 1-800- 537-2372 or at http://www.ercweb.com/classes
