Overview

You can easily think of numerous technological advances and innovations that have developed with society’s evolution, such as electricity, automobiles, and computers. However, negative consequences inevitably have come with these advances, and one such consequence is the production of hazardous waste. Most household waste can be taken care of via recycling, incinerators or landfills, but these solutions do not work for industrial wastes. These wastes, called solid wastes by the EPA, have a number of specialized rules and regulations pertaining to their storage, maintenance, and disposal everyone must strictly be adhere to. Through this training video you will learn these rules and regulations, as well as how to identify and deal with these dangerous substances.

The EPA designates which solid wastes are labeled as hazardous; some examples include solvent wastes and process wastes left over from manufacturing. One of the more severe classifications of hazardous waste is acute hazardous wastes, which can cause severe reactions, even in small doses. Because of the potential dangers of these chemicals, it is critical to know how to identify solid wastes, as well as how to treat dangerous situations that may arise from their use. This on-demand lesson will educate you on the four primary characteristics present within a hazardous waste, as well as what these characteristics entail.

Through the information presented in this lesson, inform yourself on how to properly manage generator-produced hazardous waste, as well as how to best minimize the amount of waste produced. This course will also instruct you how to correctly transport waste so that potential accidents are avoided.

Many different operations produce hazardous waste. These operations may be industrial in nature, or perhaps even governmental. Regardless of where or how it is produced however, from the moment it is produced solid wastes pose a potential danger to both employees and the environment. With the training course, understand the proper ways to handle and treat this waste, as well as know how to potentially reduce and minimize the amount of hazardous waste a generator produces.
