Hazardous Waste Management - Virtual Learning

Course Objectives

Hazardous Waste Management - Virtual Learning

By the end of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Reduce waste management cost by effectively distinguishing the different types of hazardous waste and applying the relevant pre-transport requirements and disposal methods
  • Use engineering controls to ensure all individuals involved with hazardous waste have the required Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
  • Avoid accidents by applying the correct handling methods for drums and containers used for various types of hazardous wastes
  • Identify training needs for all individuals involved with hazardous waste management
  • Develop emergency response plans to hazardous substance release

Target Audience

This course is beneficial for individuals in industries that generate hazardous materials and who are charged with the development of contingency or emergency plans. This course is also designed for individuals who are directly or indirectly involved in the cleanup efforts of areas or buildings contaminated with hazardous waste.
