Environmental Careers Worker Training Program
Formerly known as the Worker Education & Job Training Program (WE&JTP), the Environmental Careers Worker Training Program (ECWTP), provides training under the HAZWOPER standard. “The HAZWOPER standard provides employers, emergency response workers, and other workers potentially exposed to hazardous substances information and training criteria to improve workplace safety and health and reduce workplace injuries and illnesses that could occur from exposures to hazardous substances. It is critical that employers and their workers understand the scope and application of HAZWOPER and can determine which sections apply to their specific work operations.”
