HOUSTON – September 14, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —
ABC Safety Solutions now offers Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response, or Hazwoper, training. Covering the topics outlined in 29 CFR 1910.120, the ABC Safety Solutions Hazwoper course satisfies all the related requirements promulgated by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The 40-hour, OSHA- and EPA-compliant safety training is aimed at workers who are or might be tasked with storing, disposing, or treating hazardous substances, as well as those involved with related clean-up or emergency response operations.
After completing the ABC Safety Solutions course, workers will be qualified to engage in the eight hours of directed hands-on training required of Hazwoper specialists. Students who pass the written exam administered at the end of the course will receive certificates vouching for their mastery of subjects including:
Regulatory requirements concerning hazardous waste and associated operations.
Site characterization techniques that enable the identification and management of flammable, explosive, chemical, and radiological hazards.
The proper use of personal protective equipment.
The effective use of safety data sheets.
Usage of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration’s official Emergency Response Guidebook.
“We’re proud to report that we now offer a 40-hour Hazwoper training course,” said ABC Safety Solutions representative Anis Cehic. “Some materials are inherently hazardous, whether because they are highly flammable, explosive, toxic, chemically volatile, or radiologically active. Managing such materials safely takes a lot of specialized knowledge, and our Hazwoper course is designed to provide everything required. Whether for emergency responders and clean-up technicians or people who work with hazardous waste routinely, this course covers a great deal of truly invaluable information. Students who complete our new Hazwoper course can be confident that they are well-equipped to work around and with hazardous materials.”
OSHA lists five kinds of organizations and workers that are required to comply with all of the regulations detailed in its Hazwoper guidelines. That includes three distinct types of cleanup work, along with hazardous waste emergency response operations and the routine storage, treatment, and disposal of hazardous waste at designated, certified facilities.
As such, companies and their employees in the Houston area regularly need to obtain Hazwoper training. As with all ABC Safety Solutions courses, the company’s new 40-hour Hazwoper program is designed to be highly accessible and effective.
