Solid Waste Operators and those that work in the industry of solid waste encounter many different hazardous situations, including handling waste that has the potential to combust. NHDES has partnered with the NH State Police Bomb Squad to provide information to solid waste operators about how to properly address such situations. Instructors will cover how to handle, manage and address the following wastes that may come into the facility: clandestine drug and explosive labs, waste ammunition, flares, fireworks and even blasting caps.
Additionally, these operators at solid waste facilities encounter wastes that may be contaminated with illegal substances, and attendees will learn what to do in these situations, including when Narcan may be needed. Instructors will focus on health and safety at these locations and any emergency actions that must be taken.
