Meany Center offers hazmat training

The George Meany Center-National Labor College will conduct four hazardous waste/chemical emergency response training programs in 2002 at its campus in Silver Spring, Md.

Registration for each four-day training session is on a first-come, first served basis, and is limited to the first 25 who apply. The dates are as follows:

The training sessions address OSHA and DOT required procedures, different levels of response, and worker protection in case of a hazmat emergency or release. The training also includes advanced classroom instruction and intensive hands-on drills.

The highlight of the course is a simulated hazmat response in full safety gear.

Transportation, lodging and meals are provided for all participants by a Federal grant. In addition, participants who are unable to receive regular pay through the railroad while attending a training session are eligible for a stipend of $428.
