What’s in a Name?
To the uninitiated, the word ‘Hazwoper’ might bring to mind a new menu choice at Burger King, but in the manufacturing business, it is serious business. Hazwoper is the acronym for Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response.
Although the ingredients used in manufacturing our customers’ products are not inherently hazardous, as a manufacturer we must be prepared for any potential emergency response need.
Not a Simple Task
Each of our hazwoper team members has undergone 25 hours of training to OSHA guidelines for handling hazardous waste emergencies. Each year, to maintain currency, they must re-certify with an additional 8-hours of refresher training. Indeed, a Hazwoper certification is not a nominal undertaking.
A Very Big Thank You
We greatly appreciate the time and talent it took for each of them to earn their ‘Hazwoper Certification’.
