AEL conducts work on a number of sensitive sites, and as a requirement of doing work on these sites the individuals conducting the work have to complete the Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response training course. This training is compliant with the requirements of the OSHA Standard 29 CFR 1910.120. Successful completion of the classroom and practical exercises will result in ‘certification’ for the attendees. This certification is recognized in the US and Canada for work performed at uncontrolled waste sites.
This course focuses on understanding US and Canadian health & safety regulations and practices; hazmat recognition; PPE/CPC selection; decontamination procedures; spill control and containment; exposure monitoring; and spill reporting and spill response planning. Practical exercises include level A and B responses to simulated hazmat incidents. Full exposure to realistic spill scenarios designed by instructors with over 40 years of experience, makes this course one of the best training courses AEL has been able to find, and makes us proud to make it a mandatory requirement of our employees while working on remote northern sites.
