Course Information


The hazardous waste rules are an extremely complex set of rules that apply to most manufacturing companies and many service  related companies.  The Michigan rules closely parallel the federal rules but have some important differences.  While most transport companies can identify and properly dispose of your waste, your company retains all responsibility for the proper packaging, labeling, and disposal of your wastes.


EOCT provides a 40 hour class that will show  you how to implement the Michigan Hazardous Waste rules.   

29 CFR 1910.120, in addition with regulating work on environmentally contaminated sites during remediation, requires most  employees receive training in the proper methods to respond to hazardous materials releases.  Employees must be taught to identify hazardous conditions and protect themselves and their co-workers for these hazards.

EOCT provides awareness training, 8 hour operations level, 32 hour hazmat technician level, specialist level and incident commander training.

49 CFR 172.700 requires a systematic training program that 

  • Is function specific, 

  • Ensures familiarity with the general provisions   of the Transportation Department rules,
  • Ability to recognize hazardous   materials,  
  • Provides a knowledge of emergency response   information
  • Provides self-protection and accident   prevention methods

Additionally, DOT HazMat training must now include security awareness or in-depth security training depending on the company security requirements.

EOCT provides 40 hours of training that follows DOT's own lesson plans to ensure your training meets all of the DOT Objectives.

EOCT also provides Hazard Communication Administrator's Training, Chemical Safety and Chemical Process Safety Management training.
