Description
HEALTH AND SAFETY (HAZWOPER)
Hazwoper (hazardous waste operations and emergency response) is a 40-hour course that promotes awareness of safety and response plans for those who may work with chemical and other hazards in the work-site. Students will learn how hazardous materials are handled and identified; human responses to exposure; learn what to do in case of site emergencies; use appropriate safety methods and work practice controls; and understand labels that are used to alert personnel of danger involving hazardous material. (Many employers in environmental consulting firms and other industries require 40-hour osha training.) The course will count as an elective in the environmental studies major.
