The Hazardous Waste Operation and Emergency Response Standard has existed for a long time (since 1990 in fact). Even today, it's difficult to determine who needs training and what kind of training they require because the requirements are unclear. By providing you with this blog post, we hope to assist you in determining what you, as an employee, need to fulfil your training obligations.
