The program begins with an exercise on motivating safe work practices. These ideas are incorporated into an exercise which comprises the remainder of the day-long program. Using the description of a mock site sample Site Safety and Health Plan, participants conduct an accident investigation, design monitoring and control strategies, determine necessary personal protective equipment and practice handling the media and dealing with issues related to OSHA inspections. The exercise has been developed to allow groups interested in construction activities, earth moving activities or demolition to work simultaneously from the same scenario, and exchange approaches to hazardous waste site supervision/management.
Persons who are or who anticipate being supervisors/managers at a hazardous waste site. Persons responsible for managing and/or supervising employees at hazardous waste sites, including contractors, consultants, engineers, and other managerial or supervisory personnel. To be eligible for participation in the program the student must provide evidence of completion of a 40-hour training program for hazardous waste site personnel or certification of previous training and/or experience equivalent to the 40-hour training requirements.
