Content: Hazardous Waste Managementprovides 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 HWM 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 Hazardous Waste Management Department: hazardous waste disposal (chemicals, biohazard, radioactive, and sharps), hazardous materials emergency response, decommissioning of laboratory areas and recycling of metals and other obsolete equipment.
Participation in Hazardous Waste Management & Disposal Training is a new requirement for all personnel working with hazardous materials at McGill.
