HMS Course Overview
The Hazardous Waste Management Specialist course from The National Association of Safety Professionals (NASP) offers students the opportunity to learn the regulations, standards and safety procedures associated with handling potentially hazardous materials. This comprehensive course covers the latest regulatory requirements, universal waste ordinances, VOC standards for hazardous waste generators, waste exemptions and exclusions, and waste minimization requirements.
Students who complete the hazardous waste management training and earn their specialization certificate will be able to:
- Define, identify and correctly label hazardous waste.
- Understand and apply applicable standards from OSHA, DOT, RCRA, CERCLA, SARA and TSCA.
- Develop contingency plans for how to comply with land disposal restrictions.
- Design and implement emergency response procedures.
- Create manifests for different types of waste materials.
At the conclusion of the course, you will be required to take a final exam to demonstrate your understanding. You’ll have two opportunities to pass the test with a score of 80% or better. Only students who succeed will be awarded a specialist certificate.
Students should expect the HMS training course to take approximately 13 hours to complete. 1.3 continuing education units (CEUs) are offered for this IACET-accredited course, which will be reflected on your final certificate.
