Price: $695.00

Workers assigned tasks at hazardous waste sites, storage, treatment, and or disposal facilities are required by OSHA and the EPA to acquire 40-hour HAZWOPER level training before they begin working at these locations. Failure to do so can leave companies vulnerable to citations and fines. In addition to the legal penalties, workers can be exposed to dangerous situations and not even know it.

Health and Safety Sciences’ HazMAT40™ training group members are high-speed, real-world responders that have hazardous waste site and TSD experience. The training cadre comes from fire service, law enforcement, emergency management and military backgrounds.

Health and Safety Sciences’ interactive training techniques are designed to immerse students in the world of hazardous waste site operations. By using comprehensive, hands-on instructional methods, HSS trains you for likely scenarios at your facility. To supplement class lectures, HSS’s HazMAT40™ instructors introduce problem-solving case studies to further engage trainees. Each student dons personal protective equipment and functions under the site safety plan to perform mission critical skills.
