RCRA Hazardous Waste Generator Training course is designed for individuals seeking training and certification for work in compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations 40 CFR Part 261 and 40 CFR Part 262 for handling and management of hazardous waste in line with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) of 1976. The EPA requires training for personnel engaged in hazardous waste management and handling operations to familiarize them with the procedures for proper management of hazardous waste from “Cradle-To-Grave.” The term Cradle-To-Grave means to manage hazardous waste from the time the waste is first created, through transportation, treatment, and storage, until its final disposal.
The RCRA Training course is suitable for hazardous waste generators; supervisors; owners and personnel employed by treatment, storage, and disposal facilities (TSDFs); hazardous waste contractors, and environmental compliance specialists, among many others.
This training will enable employees to understand EPA regulations for handling hazardous waste and help employers comply with these regulations to ensure a safe work environment for all stakeholders. The training will also encompass emergency procedures for various categories of hazardous waste generators.
The RCRA Hazardous Waste Generator Training must be provided to personnel within six months of job assignment or change in job function and on an annual basis thereafter.
