COURSE DESCRIPTION


2018 Haz Training Announcement.pdf

The State of Wisconsin Bureau of State Risk Management (BSRM) will sponsor Awareness Level training for all employees working at state-owned or state-operated facilities that use and dispose of materials or objects that contain hazardous chemical products. These training sessions are free of charge to eligible employees. The training includes information on the management and proper disposal of products such as: fluorescent lamps, mercury switches, oils, paints, thinners, laboratory chemicals, cleaners, corrosives (acids and bases) and poisons. Attendees are encouraged to bring specific examples and/or questions about hazardous material management from their workplace for general discussion.

State-owned or operated facilities that use products or objects that contain hazardous chemicals are required to provide training to "ensure that all employees are thoroughly familiar with proper waste handling, disposal and emergency procedures, relevant to their responsibilities during normal facility operations and emergencies." These training sessions are designed to meet the state regulatory requirements in Wisconsin Administrative Code NR 662. 192 (e) 3 for Small Quantity Generators of Hazardous Waste and NR 673. 16 for Small Quantity Handlers of Universal Waste. Sessions will be held at several locations throughout the State of Wisconsin from February 22 through April 10, 2018.  
 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

  • Facility operations, maintenance, and buildings and grounds management personnel
  • Personnel involved with vehicle and equipment maintenance and repair including: surface preparation and painting, cleaning activities, battery and lamp replacement, boiler and/or swimming pool maintenance, parts washing, fluid transfers and oil or antifreeze changes
  • Personnel working in laboratories that generate waste solvents or other chemical wastes
  • Personnel working in stock/supply-areas that order, receive or store chemical products
  • Supervisors who oversee personnel with the above duties
