Faculty, staff and students who deal with hazardous or solid waste, hazardous substances, and spill response are required to receive training in accordance with the University’s Environmental Management Training Plan. No faculty, student or staff member is allowed to work unsupervised in a position in which they handle or are exposed to hazardous waste, hazardous materials, or are involved in spill response until they have received the required training.

The Director of Environmental Management (and the designated Back-Up DEM) will attend training/refresher courses to develop skills and increase knowledge in the areas of hazardous materials and hazardous waste, DOT requirements, OSHA requirements related to hazardous materials, webpage design and development for disseminating information, bio-safety and bio-hazardous waste, and to maintain Certified Hazardous Materials Manager status.
