CPWR’s Hazardous Waste Worker Training meets the requirements for a workers’ initial and refresher training required by 29 CFR 1926.65 and 1910.120. More importantly, it has been specifically designed to meet the needs of construction workers. The training has been prepared for building trades workers, by building trades workers, and is meant to be taught by experienced tradespeople. This training will help construction workers learn about their legal rights and responsibilities, how to recognize and control hazards, how to obtain information about hazardous materials, and how to inspect, use and decontaminate respirators and protective clothing. They will also learn about correct work practices, air and medical monitoring, and emergency response. CPWR Hazardous Waste Worker Training has been designed to be clear, direct, and to actively involve the student in the learning process.
