Training for RCRA environmental,
Federal regulations from the EPA, DOT, and OSHA require training for employees in certain situations, including any employee who works with any hazardous substance.
For example, the DOT requires training for any employee who will be handling, transporting, preparing for transport, or even preparing paperwork of hazardous materials (49 CFR 172.700).
The OSHA hazardous materials training requirement, found in the regulations at 29 CFR 1910.120, is referred to as the "Hazwoper" standard. The EPA's hazardous waste training requirements are generally incorporated into Hazwoper.
The EPA has other training requirements such as that required to handle or work with or near certain hazardous substances; such as Asbestos (40 CFR Part 763), PCBs (40 CFR Part 761), refrigerant CFCs (40 CFR Part 60), etc.
