The Consortium targets waste site workers and supervisors, employees at treatment, storage and disposal facilities and emergency response personnel.


Program Description

The Midwest Consortium provides training under the Hazardous Waste Worker Training Program (HWWTP) to workers who may be exposed to hazardous materials while performing jobs covered by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) standard in nine states of the Midwest (Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio, Tennessee, Wisconsin, and North Dakota). The consortium's specific aims are to serve the needs of the region through interactive, hands-on training developed to meet the needs of adult learners employed in jobs covered by HAZWOPER; to document the change in and retention of knowledge and skills as a result of training; to evaluate the impact of training and residents after return to the workplace; to provide training in communities where hazardous materials exposures may occur; and to fully integrate advanced training technologies into program content and delivery.
