The hazardous waste symbol has a skull and crossbones on it for a good reason: handling it improperly could result in you being buried six feet under!
Unfortunately, there are many industries from which hazardous waste is a byproduct, and this waste has to be properly removed and disposed of by trained professionals. The question is, who’s looking out for the safety of these workers?
If your company is involved in the transportation or disposal of hazardous waste, it’s important that you’re actively involved in OSHA safety training, both as a business manager and an employee.
What Hazardous Materials Removal Workers Do
According to the Bureau Of Labor Statistics, “Hazardous materials (hazmat) removal workers identify and dispose of asbestos, lead, radioactive waste, and other hazardous materials. They also neutralize and clean up materials that are flammable, corrosive, or toxic.”
Because they’re required to work in volatile and dangerous environments on a regular basis, OSHA safety training is especially important.
