Hazardous Materials & Waste Management


Training is required for all individuals who are responsible for the management of hazardous materials and waste. The course describes the laboratory workers responsibilities and the university’s responsibilities for complying with environmental protection standards and transportation of hazardous materials. The course reviews Oakland University’s Hazardous Waste Management Program, which also describes EPA's Resource Conservation & Recovery Act (RCRA) and acceptable methods and processes for hazardous waste disposal.

Annual refresher training is required to stay informed of changes and review safe practices.


Training is required by Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Dept. of Transportation
