Intended Audience

This course meets the classroom training requirements for workers, managers and supervisors who participate in hazardous waste operations, specifically:

  • General site workers involved with removing toxic, flammable, or corrosive substances who are likely to be exposed to hazardous substances and site health hazards over permissible and published exposure limits and who are required to wear respirators on the job site
  • On-site supervisors and managers who are in charge of general site workers engaged in hazardous waste operations

Why Take This Course

Our experienced instructors tailor approaches to your organization’s needs and offer a high-caliber educational experience through interactive tools and innovative exercises. Our on-site courses move quickly and give attendees relevant, practical knowledge applicable to their area of expertise.

The On-Site Training Difference

While online training is a convenient option, instructor-led safety training offers benefits that will produce a greater long-term payoff, including:

  1. Knowledge Retention – When it comes to knowledge retention, nothing beats instructor-led training. The classroom provides a focused environment for learning that encourages participation and discussion.
  2. Personalized Learning – Experienced instructors tailor approaches and answer specific questions during the course of the training. Students also receive immediate feedback. If a particular section is confusing, too fast or too slow, the trainer can adjust the teaching plan to accommodate real-time feedback.
  3.  Peer Learning – In a classroom setting, attendees can gain insight from others’ questions and learn from their peers as well as the instructor. This is also a great networking opportunity to meet and learn from others in a similar field or trade.
