- Effective Training: Covering the Bases
- There are twenty-eight OSHA-approved state plans operating state-wide occupational safety and health programs. State plans are required to have standards and enforcement programs that are at least as effective as OSHA’s and may have different or more stringent requirements.
- Job Hazard Analysis (OSHA 3071). This OSHA booklet explains what a job hazard analysis is and offers guidelines to conduct a step-by-step analysis.
The Community and College Consortium for Health and Safety Training (CCCHST) is administered by one of HMTRI’s partners, the Partnership for Environmental Technology Education (PETE). CCCHST instructors, prepared by PETE and HMTRI, annually train 10,000 workers, technicians, and supervisors to protect themselves and their communities:
- From exposure to hazardous materials encountered during:
- Waste site cleanup.
- Disaster site cleanup.
- Brownfields redevelopment.
- In the transportation of hazardous materials.
- In the response to spills and releases of hazardous materials.
Using a curriculum developed by HMTRI, CCCHST conducts an annual ten-day train-the-trainer program called the GreatEST Institute (Great Environmental Safety Training Institute) to deliver certifications for public and private responders and workers including:
- 40-hour Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER)
