to develop a comprehensive program to manage hazardous wastes from cradle to grave in an effort ensure that hazardous waste is handled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. These courses are intended to provide training required by the EPA for those employees whose duties involve the handling, storage, transport, management or disposal of hazardous waste generated by their employer.
The Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES)
stormwater permits, one component of the TPDES program, regulate stormwater discharges from industrial activities, construction activities, and municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) to Texas waters.
HAZWOPER & Spill Response
These courses consist of both lecture and hands-on training exercises. A wide array of personal protective equipment, monitoring equipment and other emergency response equipment is available for student use.
