Hazmat Training Comes to San Diego





Released on: October 15, 2009, 11:36 am
Author: Environmental Resource Center
Industry: Environment

October 15, 2009- When workers handle hazardous waste or ship hazardous materials, training is not just a good idea, it’s the law. According to the Department of Toxic Substances Control1, 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.



Environmental Resource Center®, the leading provider of environmental and safety training, will present the mandatory training in San Diego on November 3-5 at the Courtyard by Marriott – Airport/Liberty Station.

Hazardous Waste Management: The Complete Course will be taught on November 3 and 4.

DOT Hazardous Materials Training: The Complete Course will be taught on November 5 at the same location.

Untrained workers are frequently the cause of environmental accidents and penalties. Last year, more than 470 companies were inspected by the DTSC, resulting in almost $1.7 million in penalties for the mismanagement of hazardous waste.2

Registration for the training is available by calling 800-537-2372 or at http://www.ercweb.com/classes.

Now in its 28th 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.

Notes to Editor:

1 See California Code of Regulations, Title 22 Chapter 12 66262.34(a)(1)(C)(4) and 66265.16

2 A summary of DTSC penalties is available at http://www.dtsc.ca.gov/HazardousWaste/upload/SCD_FinalReport_FY05-06A.pdf
