Hazardous Waste Site Training for Occasional Site Workers

Jim Rice and Jim Celenza (RI Committee on Occupational Safety and Health) organized an OSHA mandated hazardous waste training (8-hour refresher) for trainees and faculty who need to go onto contaminated sites per 29 CRF 1910.120. Three-day (24-hour) hazardous waste training courses have been conducted for the Brown University and Boston University SRPs in 2006 and 2010, with refresher (8-hour) courses in 2008, 2010, and 2013. The New England Consortium (TNEC) of the University of Massachusetts – Lowell, conducts the training at Brown. This is of particular value to students whose careers might take them onto contaminated sites after graduation.
