Training requirements are abundant across many environmental and safety regulations. The USEPA, US OSHA, and many state worker safety and environmental agencies require ongoing training on an annual or bi-annual basis. Many of these training needs are provided by individual companies for their own workers at minimal cost because the training material is distinct and pertinent to only their particular operation. However, many companies find the more specialized training is beyond their capacity to provide or maintain on a frequent basis. This is the arena that TecServ Environmental, Inc. serves to a broad based clientele. These training areas of expertise are as follows, but not limited to:

  • OSHA HAZWOPER 24 and 40 Hour
  • OSHA HAZWOPER 8 Hour Annual Refresher
  • OSHA 10 Hour General Industry
  • OSHA 30 Hour General Industry
  • OSHA 10 Hour Construction
  • OSHA 30 Hour Construction
  • SPCC Annual Training
  • Stormwater Discharge Annual Training
  • USEPA Annual RCRA Training

Many of these training programs also require written plans to be in place prior to the initial training as well as periodic updates. Allow TecServ to assist you with your training needs as well as keeping you in compliance with the written plans and their updates.


Many environmental rules affect the daily operational, maintenance, and custodial staff in our schools, public housing, and soon in the entire housing repair industry. The rules cover primarily asbestos and lead paint. Additional education can cover mold, general dust issues, black water, natural gas, and electrical hazards. Training of the staff in these situations is critical in maintaining a safe interior environment to which our school-age children and elderly are exposed on a daily basis.

Additionally, beginning on April 22, 2010, new rules will be in place regarding the general repair industry for residential housing. Starting on that date, all contractors involved in the repair, remodeling, and painting (RRP) arenas will need to be trained in the hazards of lead paint, general guidelines for determining if lead paint is present, and what general practices are required to limit worker and occupant exposure to lead-paint dust. TecServ is pleased to be working with Environmental Management Institute in Indianapolis, Indiana in providing the required training for this vital industry to the general housing contractor market place.

In summary, the following courses are offered:

  • Asbestos General Awareness
  • AHERA 2-Hour Asbestos Awareness
  • Lead Paint General Awareness and Safe Practices
  • RRP Certification (Certified Renovator) and their updates.
