    Regulatory Training in Underground Storage Tanks: NJDEP Approved Training

    8:00 am-4:00 pm
    2019.06.12

    If you are becoming UST certified for the first time or if your certification is in need of renewal, this class is for you! Stay current with New Jersey’s UST regulatory requirements and help your company and clients avoid costly penalties and fines.

    The New Jersey Underground Storage Tank (UST) regulations (NJAC 7:14B Subchapter 13 & 16) require that all personnel who install, close, test, and design corrosion protection systems for regulated USTs be certified as well as those subsurface evaluators (SSE) who perform services on unregulated USTs (UHOT).  All owners/operators of regulated USTs who are persons responsible for remediation must retain the services of a Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) as of May 7, 2012.

    The NJDEP requires professionals who work on USTs to be trained, certified/recertified every three (3) years. This NJDEP approved course fulfills the NJDEP course requirement for regulatory training and must be taken within one year prior to renewal. Professional engineers and plumbing contractors, exempt from the certification examination, must attend the course within one year of certification.

    OSHA 8-Hour HAZWOPER Annual Refresher Training

    8:00 am-4:30 pm
    2019.06.26

    Have you taken a 24 or 40 hour OSHA HAZWOPER course, and need to renew your certification?

    Don’t be out of compliance with OSHA regulations. This full-day training course meets the requirements outlined in OSHA 29 CFR 1910.120 for 8 (eight) hours of annual refresher training for workers at hazardous waste sites. This program is designed for general site workers who remove hazardous waste or who are exposed or potentially exposed to hazardous substances or health hazards and who have already taken the HAZWOPER 24-hour or HAZWOPER 40-hour certification training. This program covers topics pertaining to workplace hazards associated with Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER).

    Topics Include:
    HAZWOPER regulations, site characterization, toxicology, hazard recognition, personal protective equipment, decontamination, medical surveillance, confined space entry and emergency procedures and will include a combination of lectures, class exercises and hands-on training.

    Benefits from Attending this Program:
    Employers that invest in workplace safety and health can expect to reduce fatalities, injuries, and illnesses. This will result in cost savings in a variety of areas, such as lowering workers’ compensation costs and medical expenses, avoiding OSHA penalties, and reducing costs to train replacement employees and conduct accident investigations. In addition, employers often find that changes made to improve workplace safety and health can result in significant improvements to their organization’s productivity and financial performance.

    Instructor:
    David Sweeney is the former Assistant Commissioner of the NJDEP Site Remediation Program which oversees the investigation and clean-up of contaminated sites in New Jersey. He has worked on revisions to the Site Remediation Program’s Technical Regulations and associated Technical Guidance documents.

    Undercurrents in Site Remediation: Hydrogeology for LSRPs & Environmental Professionals

    8:00 am-3:30 pm
    2019.09.13
    Undercurrents in Site Remediation:
    Hydrogeology for LSRP’s & Environmental Professionals

    Introduction

    Groundwater – a fugacious, transient phase, moving unobserved and un-seeable through a three-dimensional network of cryptic subterranean passages, entraining, transporting, precipitating and re-entraining a dissolved load of mineral and chemical species, ultimately emerging from the Earth’s crust as surface water. Never actually seeing their object of study, hydrogeologists rely on indirect measurements to internally visualize groundwater flow and then communicate their visualizations using second-hand representations or simulations. Engaged thus in the unseen, it is small wonder that even geologists disagree with each other in their conclusions about groundwater, contaminant transport and remedial strategies.

    Faced with making decisions pertaining to the invisible world flowing beneath their feet, Site Remediation Professionals must synthesize hydrogeologists’ esoteric and indirect measurements into a reasoned, compliant, and ultimately defensible site remediation strategy. A seemingly hopeless endeavor, that objective is nonetheless achievable because, despite the uncertainties and competing hypotheses, hydrogeology is an objective science and LSRPs and Site Remediation Professionals are in the unique position to require geologists to support their conclusions/solutions with hard data, empowered to question every interpretation and conclusion along the way.

    Course Description

    This course will provide you with jargon-free explanations of the fundamental aspects of geology and hydrogeology relevant to site remediation decisions. The approach for all topics discussed is that decision makers must know the questions to ask and must be able to understand the responses. This assures that the technical persons making recommendations in support of the individual’s remedial decisions can defend those recommendations with hard data which will stand scrutiny and challenges!
