Hazardous Waste Operations & Emergency Response (HAZWOPER)
We prefer to train at your site, so employees can learn about their own equipment and how to respond to leaks in their own system; however, we can provide off-site training as needed. Training can be general, or specific to refrigeration systems, oil spill response, etc.
