Chicago, IL, January 28, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- When workers handle hazardous waste or ship hazardous materials, training is not just a good idea, it’s the law. According to the EPA, workers who handle hazardous waste must be trained annually, and the federal DOT requires that workers involved in the shipment of hazardous materials be trained at least every three years. Personnel who ship hazardous materials by air or water must receive training mandated by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) every two years and International Maritime Organization (IMO) every three years. Many workers never get this training, which can result in tragic accidents and big penalties.
Environmental Resource Center, the leading provider of environmental and safety training, will present the mandatory training in Chicago at the Hilton Garden Inn - O’Hare Airport, February 16-19, 2016.
Hazardous Waste Management: The Complete Course will be presented on February 16 and 17.
Hazardous Materials Certification Training for DOT 49 CFR Transportation Regulations will be held on February 18 at the same location. IATA/IMO will be presented on February 19. Classes begin at 8am and end at 5pm each day.
Registration for the training is available by calling 800-537-2372 or at http://www.ercweb.com/classes.
Now in its 35th year, Environmental Resource Center trains not only thousands of industry personnel every year; the company also trains personnel from most of the state and federal agencies that enforce the regulations.
