Loureiro conducted various on-site training programs for one of New England’s largest food manufacturers. At one of their locations, a 24-Hour HAZWOPER Hazardous Materials Technician Training program was conducted. The course fulfilled the Hazardous Material Technician Training 29 CFR 1910.120 (q)(6)(iii) requirement for individuals who respond to or stop the release of a hazardous substance. The training topics included: classification, identification and verification of known and unknown materials; using specialized chemical protective equipment; understanding hazard and risk assessment techniques; and understanding/implementing decontamination and spill response termination procedures. The training incorporated a variety of spill drills and scenarios as a means to provide hands on practice to participants and to reinforce the material presented during the classroom session.

At another location, Loureiro conducted both RCRA Hazardous Waste Management and DOT Hazardous Material Employee training sessions. The RCRA Hazardous Waste Management training was conducted in accordance with 40 CFR 262.34(a)(4) and 265.16 or 262.34 (d)(5)(iii) and included a complete review of wastes generated by the client as well as waste inspection/regulatory waste procedures. The DOT Hazardous Material Employee training was in conducted accordance with 49 CFR 172.704 and included general awareness, safety and security awareness training.

Highlights

  • Trainings were customized to address the site specific hazards and needs of each facility.
  • Spill drills were developed to practice and address site specific concerns and to allow response staff to initiate response action in a safe, controlled and guided manner. This enabled participants to gain experience from Loureiro’s trained responders in a risk free environment while enhancing their ability to manage the safety concerns at the client’s facility.
