The 40-Hour HAZWOPER, which takes place annually each Fall, is scheduled for the week of November 14 – 18, 2016. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your interest in taking the course.
NEIA, in association with Atlantic Environmental Training & On-Site Services Inc., annually conducts a 40 Hour HAZWOPER (hazardous waste operations & emergency response) training course.
Also known as the 40 hour contaminated sites course, this training is compliant with the requirements of the OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.120 HAZWOPER. Successful completion of the classroom and practical exercises will result in ‘certification’ for the attendees. This certification is recognized in the US and Canada for work performed at uncontrolled waste sites. DCC and PWGSC are now requiring contractors to have this certification to qualify for some tenders involving hazmat.
This course focuses on understanding US and Canadian health & safety regulations and practices; hazmat recognition; PPE/CPC selection; decontamination procedures; spill control & containment; exposure monitoring; spill reporting and spill response planning. Practical exercises include level ‘A’ and ‘B’ responses to simulated hazmat incidents. Full exposure to realistic spill scenarios designed by instructors with over 40 years experience, will make this one of the best training courses you have ever participated in.
For those who currently have valid 40 Hour certification (certificate training within the last two years), an 8 Hour Refresher is also offered. Click here for information on the 8 Hour Refresher.
The HAZWOPER course is designed for hazardous waste clean up (remediation) workers, treatment, storage and disposal workers, emergency response personnel, health and safety staff and environmental consultants. Course content is compliant with 29 CFR 1910.120(e) which satisfies municipal, provincial and federal requirements for health and safety training for site workers at uncontrolled waste sites in the US and Canada.
The 40 Hour Contaminated Sites Health & Safety Training (40 Hour HAZWOPER) meets the mandatory requirements of the OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.120(e) which also satisfies the requirements of Public Works and Government Services Canada for delivery on projects such as the Argentia Remediation Project.
