Hazardous Waste Site Worker and Emergency Response Training is required under the OSHA 1910.120 standard. All of TNEC’s courses meet or exceed the OSHA standard for protecting hazardous waste workers and employees who respond to hazardous material emergencies in their workplaces. Our training includes simulated work tasks and mock incidents which ensure our students are thoroughly prepared for work site hazards and emergency response situations. Upon completion of each course, students receive a certificate that documents their training.
Effective training has the capability of empowering workers so that they are more fully able to participate in the protection of their own health and safety. In doing so, they also are able to contribute to the health and safety of their co-workers and of the community at large around their place of employment. More and more businesses view training and other environmental, health and safety issues from a business strategy perspective rather than from the former pure cost of compliance standpoint.
TNEC has worked with more than 2,000 New England employers, and provided training to many of the major environmental and health and safety regulatory agencies in New England, including the U.S. EPA and OSHA, Region I. TNEC’s adherence to NIEHS’s Minimum Criteria for Worker Health and Safety Training for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response ensures the provision of high quality training from one of the nation’s model health and safety training programs.
