Hazardous & Regulated Medical Waste Management Training

If you work with* hazardous chemical waste or regulated medical waste, you are required to take the appropriate Environmental Health and Safety Waste Management Training Class.

You are only required to take the training that applies to your work duties. If you work with both regulated medical waste and hazardous chemical waste you are required to take both training courses.

Please note that Hazardous Waste Management Training (ENV 001) and Regulated Medical Waste Management Training (ENV 005) are now offered on-line through the Blackboard e-Education platform. Taking the classes on-line provides the same "credit" that you get when you attend the "live" classroom versions. The on-line versions can also be used to review the course material after you have taken the live classes, or to take the annual refresher classes, when required. For more information on how to access ENV 001 and/or ENV 005 through Blackboard, please click here.

* The term "to work with" or manage hazardous/regulated medical waste means you:

  • decide if a material is a hazardous/regulated medical waste or not
  • add hazardous/regulated medical waste into accumulation containers
  • transport hazardous/regulated medical waste from the accumulation point (lab) to another location
  • inspect hazardous/regulated medical waste storage areas
  • respond to spills involving hazardous/regulated medical waste
