Course description

Hazardous Waste Management

This course is intended to help the participant understand the difference between what is hazardous and what is not. Many types of hazardous material require special handling, and the correct handling methods must be used for the material being disposed. Hazardous waste, if not contained correctly can lead to fires, explosions, or the release of toxic fumes due to interaction with the container. It is crucial to ensure the hazardous material is ready for transport in order to reduce risks, last minute efforts and added expenses.

This course provides every professional involved with the knowledge and skills to ensure the safe handling of hazardous waste as well as drafts of contingency/emergency plans.

This course will be highly interactive and include group discussions, case studies and syndicate work. It will include practical exercises that will allow all participants to use the knowledge they gained to demonstrate their skills in hazardous waste management.
