Audits are proving to review training records.  Be sure your team is confident and compliant.

Be Audit Ready!  Tuesday, July 18th!  

ERG presents an enjoyable learning experience that exceeds /meets regulatory requirements.  Our training professionals provide field experiences and examples that deepens knowledge and keeps the class engaged.

Regulations are constantly changing.  Stay up-to-date with the latest regulations for managing your hazardous waste from cradle to grave under the US EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations.

Build team confidence working with the RCRA hazardous waste rules to keep employees safe, prevent releases, and avoid costly EPA civil penalties and liability. EPA requires annual RCRA training for all hazardous waste facility personnel. In July 2016, US EPA raised the fines for RCRA hazardous waste violations. Fines are now as high as $71,264 per day, per violation.

Be Prepared !  Tuesday, July 18th 

The training includes an overview of hazardous waste management laws and regulations, a guide to complying with hazardous waste regulations including how to recognize hazardous wastes, how to manage waste correctly on site, how to properly select, label and mark waste containers, how to prepare shipments for transport to treatment, storage and disposal facilities, and how to properly keep records for compliance and enforcement.

This class also includes a review of the DOT’s regulations for shipping hazardous materials, including the Hazardous Materials Table (HMT), proper shipping name, hazard classes, marking and labeling, shipping papers, packing groups, and security.

This is a refresher course and is intended for individuals who are familiar with both RCRA and DOT requirements. Hands on materials are used throughout the class.

The class fee includes a light breakfast, beverages, lunch and the course materials.

HAZWOPER Refresher Training:   Tuesday, Feb 28th

HAZWOPER : Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response.

HAZWOPER Refresher

ERG Environmental Services is hosting yet another important regulation training.

HAZWOPER Refresher Training!

This is the time of year when the training records needs to be reviewed.

Review your job description.

  • Has your position/job description changed?
  • Do I perform more/different tasks?
  • Does your training line up with your job description?HAZWOPER Refresher training is covered under OSHA standard 29 CFR Part 1910.120.According to OSHA, the HAZWOPER standard applies to five types of employers and their employees and specifically includes any employees who are exposed to hazardous substances and who are engaged in several operations including clean-up, storing, storage, treatment and disposal of hazardous waste.Also, workers involved in an emergency response operation dealing with hazardous waste and workers who have to perform those duties at a waste site where hazardous contamination are equally expected to be fully trained and protected.For clarification, an interpretation letter provided by OSHA gives some guidance as to what constitutes a hazardous substance or situation:
    • High concentrations of toxic substances.
    • Situation that is life or injury threatening.
    • Imminent Danger to Life and Health (IDLH) environments.
    • Situation that presents an oxygen deficient atmosphere.
    • Condition that poses a fire or explosion hazard.
    • Situation that required an evacuation of the area.
    • A situation that requires immediate attention because of the danger posed to employees in the area.

    Employees and employers covered by the OSHA HAZWOPER standard are required to take the initial HAZWOPER training which consists of a 24 or 40-hour course. Depending on your job type and experience, you may be able to take the 24-hour course to meet your HAZWOPER training requirement.

    Every year after the initial training requirement has been met, workers are required to take an 8-hour HAZWOPER refresher training. This refresher training is designed to meet the annual training requirement for hazardous waste operations and emergency response workers.
