Hazardous Waste Operations & Emergency Response – OSHA ruled that workers must be HAZWOPER trained if they perform the following operations:

  • Clean-up operations required by a governmental body involving hazardous substances that are conducted at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites
  • Corrective actions involving clean-up operations at sites covered by RCRA
  • Voluntary clean-up operations at sites recognized by Federal, state, local or other governmental bodies as uncontrolled hazardous waste sites
  • Operations involving hazardous waste that are conducted at treatment, storage, disposal (TSD) facilities; and
  • Emergency response operations for releases of, or substantial threats of releases of, hazardous substances without regard to the location of the hazard.

Emergency Action Plan

You truly never know when an emergency will occur, so it is better to be safe than sorry. Having a well-thought out and developed emergency action plan (EAP) that explains company protocol for worker training, sheltering in place, and immediate evacuation procedures will help provide direction in a crisis.

site assessment program development etc training

Site Assessment Program Development

In the case of a hazardous spill, will you have an onsite response team? Hire a third party contractor? What kind of spill response equipment do you need? Are your employees properly trained?
