Federal and State regulations as well as the UH HMMP require that all generators of hazardous waste receive mandatory initial training and annual refresher training. The purpose of the training is to provide waste generators with EPA requirements and University hazardous materials/waste policies and procedures. EHSO will not accept a request for disposal of excess hazardous materials or hazardous waste unless the Hazardous Waste Turn in Form is signed by a generator that has attended the initial training or a refresher training within the past year.
- Initial Hazardous Waste Generator Training is being held online. There are no in-person Initial Hazardous Waste Generator Training courses scheduled. Please fill out the Google form below to sign up for the online Initial Hazardous Waste Generator Training course. It may take 1-2 business days to process your request. After your request is processed, a link to the training site will be emailed to you via Laulima. Once the link is emailed to you and you gain access to the training site, follow the instructions on the “Overview” tab to the left of the page. After successfully completing the quiz, you will be able to print out your certificate of completion. Please provide a copy of all your training documents to your PI or lab supervisor for record keeping purposes.Please contact Leimomi Kekina, EHSO Education Coordinator, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 808-956-5180 with any training related questions or if assistance is needed scheduling classes.
