EHS Training

HAZWOPER & EHS Training Services

  • EHS training is an umbrella term for compliance trainings that fall under a variety of environmental and health and safety regulations overseen by different government organizations such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), The Department of Transportation (DOT), International Air Transport Association (IATA), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

    Environmental health and safety training may be required to comply with activities involving waste classification, hazardous materials shipping, hazardous waste operations, or the commercial use of toxic substances (to name a few).

    EHS training may be mandated by certain acts such as the Resource Conservation Recovery Act, Toxic Substance Control Act, and the Frank Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, or it can be a voluntary decision by safety conscious companies and organizations. Each type of training has a different standard and process for certification and renewal.

    A critical assessment of your EHS program, work activities, facilities, and industry nuances is often the best way to determine which courses are suggested, recommended, or required.

  • EHS training not only helps to protect the health and well-being of workers, but it also ensures that employers avoid the legal ramifications of failing to comply with rules and regulations. Failure to adhere to policies can lead to citations, fines, and potential civil and criminal liability.

    With fines ranging from thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars, it simply makes sense to ensure your organization is protected from top to bottom. Often when citations occur, businesses and organizations may contest the decision and negotiate to settle on agreed upon solution. EHS training may be the corrective action to mitigate or negate the fine.

    Quality health and safety training helps prevent work-related injuries and illnesses. It also encourages workers by educating and empowering them to advocate for safer working conditions and environments.

  • While it varies organization-to-organization, OSHA does indicate whether a particular EHS training course must be taken in a classroom setting with an instructor or if it may be taken online. For most EHS training courses Emilcott recommends in person, or ‘proctored’ training. The benefit of a live instructor is that they engage students, actively address questions or areas of concern, and clarify ambiguous or industry-specific issues.

    If your business chooses to leverage online training, we recommend that company management thoroughly evaluate the online EHS course by completing the class to assess the student experience.

  • OSHA training requirements are dictated by the types of activities in which employees engage, and will determine which regulations apply to each company and worker. More than 100 of OSHA’s current standards involve training requirements. Some examples where specialized EHS training is indicated include: working in confined spaces, working on elevated platforms, working in environments where a respirator is required, working around live electrical, and working in excavation or trenches.

  • OSHA mandates that the employer, under their voluntary compliance requirements, ensures that employees meet all required training under the applicable OSHA standards. However, it is up to the employer to understand what types of training should be provided for the relevant regulations. As such there is no formal certification process.

    Employers don’t have the luxury of claiming ignorance of appropriate standards. OSHA operates under a “first instance penalty,” meaning the the first inspection of a facility may result in a citation. This makes environmental health and safety somewhat complicated, since businesses are left to their own devices. Many will delegate internal management identify and pursue EHS training, while others will hire experts in the field to evaluate and apply standards to their respective business.

    Interpreting standards for your specific business, should be the first step. For example, in construction, one must understand OSHA’s 1926 standards. Workers in General Industry, however, must follow 1910 standards. In businesses dealing with hazardous waste operations OSHA Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) standards apply.

  • Businesses involved in the evaluation and/or cleanup of hazardous waste sites in the United States must meet specific HAZWOPER training requirements. A few examples include construction sites where hazardous substances are present, sites with contaminated soil or groundwater, or the handling subsurface tanks and pipes.

    Employees in this sort of work must complete an initial HAZWOPER certification known as the HAZWOPER 40 hour class. In the case of emergency response technicians, the HAZWOPER 24 hour class is indicated. In both instances, employees are certified for a 12 month period and must complete an annual update referred to as the HAZWOPER refresher (which is an 8 hour course). Lastly, there is also special class for supervisors.

    OSHA HAZWOPER classes are also complementary to other trainings such as the OSHA 30 hour and 10 hour courses designed to address varying areas of construction safety.

  • This 8-hour annual HAZWOPER training is a review of the majority of topics covered in the 40-hour course. Content will often vary based on the trade, sector, or skills of the students in the classroom as instructors will accommodate the nuances of different industries with unique safety challenges.

    In general, a good HAZWOPER refresher will address detection, decontamination, planning, protection, and communication in hazardous waste situations. Course content can be delivered either online or via a live instructor. Since no licensure is required, careful attention should be paid to the credentials, expertise, and experience level of the instructor.

    With all HAZWOPER certifications, clear and complete records should be maintained by employers and instructors to show that they have trained their workforce in compliance with OSHA standards.

  • Emilcott offers a number of EHS training solutions, both online and in person. HAZWOPER training is one of our key offerings, given its high demand. Training can be hosted at one of our training facilities in New Jersey, New York, or North Carolina or sent to your location anywhere in the United States.
