Many of the regulatory programs that affect our clients include some requirements for employee training. In order to maintain compliance, improve performance and reduce liabilities and costs, many of our clients also conduct employee training that may not be required by specific regulations.

For smaller and medium sized facilities that require cost effective EH&S training, Caltha has developed the Employer’s Environmental Health & Safety Training Center. You can request further information or a quote for EH&S training using an on-line request form.

Caltha also offers “real time” web-based training.  Trainees can log into a webinar format at their own work station and can interact with the trainer in real time, saving time and money and giving your employees the advantage of interacting directing with their trainer.

RCRA Training & Universal Waste Handling Training
Some facilities are required to provide routine training to employees regarding hazard waste management. Facilities that generate only “universal wastes”, such as spent light bulbs, batteries, etc, need to document that employees have been trained on the proper handling of wastes. Caltha will develop RCRA training materials specific to your facility for you to present, or can provide an experienced RCRA trainer to present waste handling training to your employees.
Hazard Communication Training, HazCom Training

OSHA’s Hazard Communication standard includes a strong training component. Caltha prepares HazCom Training Programs for your trainers to present, or we can supply one of our expert trainers. HazCom training can also be an integral component of other compliance programs, including emergency response, spill response, hazardous waste management, and stormwater permit compliance.

Caltha also provides training on the new OSHA requirements for labelling and MSDSs, as OSHA aligns its requirements with the Globally Harmonized System, or GHS.

EMS Awareness and ISO 14001 Training
One of the key compliance elements is development of an Employee Training Program. Based on an individual employees job responsibilities, different level of training may be required, included training certification. Caltha provides stormwater training in a number of flexible formats, including “train the trainer” to maximize your training investment.
Stormwater and SWPPP Training
Caltha has provided SWPPP training to meet State storm water permit requirements in over 40 different States. Stormwater training has included Employee SWPPP Awareness Training, Inspector Training, Stormwater Monitoring Training, and Overall Permit Compliance Training modules.
SPCC Training & 40 CFR 112 Compliance Training

Facilities that exceed the SPCC rule oil storage threshold of 1,320 gallons need to prepare a Spill Prevention, Control & Countermeasure (SPCC) Plan and comply with the US EPA SPCC Rule. Caltha prepares SPCC Plans, including the new SPCC Template Plan used by smaller facilities, and assists facilities in developing their SPCC rule compliance program, including SPCC inspections and SPCC training.
