EHS - Environmental Health and Safety module
Hazardous Waste Disposal Training for Laboratory Personnel
|Cost:||$0 (Free for McGill faculty, staff and students)|
|The Waste Management Program provides a full hazardous material disposal service to the McGill community. Disposal of waste is free of charge to internal departments, provided the waste is presented in a proper manner. Due to the nature of these materials, a number of basic requirements are necessary for the WMP to process and dispose of hazardous waste safely and efficiently. This training is intended to raise awareness on proper disposal of materials in a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly manner. The training session introduces participants to 4 key elements of McGill’s Waste Management Program: hazardous waste disposal (chemicals, biohazard, radioactive, and sharps), hazardous materials emergency response, decommissioning of laboratory areas and recycling of metals and other obsolete equipment.|
