Hazardous Materials/Waste Generator Training (Mandatory)
All campus personnel who procure regulated materials or who generate regulated chemical waste must attend this training on an annual basis. This includes faculty members, staff members, graduate students and some undergraduate students. This training is required by federal and state law.
The EHS Department maintains a list of persons who have received the training within the last year and are thereby “authorized” to handle regulated materials. Unauthorized persons who request chemical procurement or waste disposal service are notified that service has been denied because their training is no longer current.
EHS requires new lab workers to attend an in-person Hazardous Waste Generator Training. EHS offers training sessions at the beginning of the semester with additional sessions available throughout the year. This training is required annually, and subsequent trainings can be completed online. The online training is available at the link below. Contact EHS@mines.edu with any questions.
