Indianapolis, IN, March 02, 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. Many workers never get this training, which can result in tragic accidents and big penalties. Environmental Resource Center’s “DOT and RCRA Annual Update and Refresher” course is the perfect way for workers to get their mandatory annual hazardous waste training as well as their DOT 49 CFR recurrent training.
In addition, 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.
With the recent chemical spills in West Virginia and North Carolina, many companies now understand the importance of working with their local government agencies and emergency responders to prevent, prepare for, and respond to chemical incidents. That’s the goal of the Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act (also known as SARA Title III). This law requires both companies and government agencies to inform the surrounding community about their facility's hazardous substances and prepare for accidental releases.
Environmental Resource Center, the leading provider of environmental and safety training, will present the mandatory training in Indianapolis at the Crowne Plaza - Indianapolis Airport, March 15-17, 2016.
DOT and RCRA Annual Update and Refresher will be taught on March 15. Transportation of Dangerous Goods: Compliance with IATA and IMO Regulations will be held on March 16 and SARA Title III (EPCRA) Workshop will be held on March 17 at the same location.
