The Training is designed to meet the requirements for:
U.S. & State Departments of Transportation (Section 172.700, 49 CFR)
State and Federal DOT regulations require each shipper, generator, carrier and transporter to instruct and test all company officials, employees or agents on the applicable hazardous materials regulations pertaining to their job functions and contact with hazardous materials and substances on a triennial basis.
Occupational Safety & Health Administration (Sections 1910.120, 1910.1200, 29 CFR)
NEW OSHA-GHS International Harmonization, including new definitions, marks, pictograms for the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) and containers. Protect your customers and employees that are exposed to hazardous chemicals and substances in the workplace. Includes the First Responder Awareness level for hazmat employees in the event of a hazardous substance release; annual training.
U.S. & State Environmental Protection Agencies (Part 262 and 265.16, 40 CFR)
State and Federal EPA regulations require each generator and owner/operator of a TSD Facility to ensure that all employees engaged in any activity involving hazardous waste successfully complete a training program on the applicable DOT, OSHA and EPA regulations. This requirement must be carried out on an annual basis
Who Should Attend?
- Managers and company personnel responsible for compliance with
the DOT/EPA/OSHA regulations for hazardous materials, substances,
chemicals or waste.
- Managers and company personnel who must instruct others on
applicable DOT/EPA/OSHA regulations.
- Company hazmat employees who need either the required initial or
annual update training.
The “Critical Interface” Problem
Compliance may become clearer when the “INTERFACE” is laid out as per
the chart. For example, when one of the 50,000 plus Hazardous Materials
is in transportation, it is subject to the DOT Regulations in 49 CFR.
When used in-plant, it now is subject to the OSHA Regulations in 29 CFR.
When it no longer has a value and will be discarded, it is subject to
the joint DOT/EPA/OSHA Regulations in 49/ 40/29 CFRs. If, at any time in
either of these three areas, it is released or discharged from its
container into the environment in an “RQ” quantity, and is not
recovered, it is now a Hazardous Substance and is subject to the
reporting responsibilities of the Clean Water Act, the Hazardous
Materials Transportation Act, the Comprehensive Environmental Response,
Compensation and Liability Act, and SARA/Title III. Understanding these
interfaces is one of the objectives of the seminar.
