    In this time of coronavirus and working at home, MWCC is pleased to offer an opportunity for you to relax over lunch with a continuation of our free webinars. So, grab your lunch and coffee, and join us!

    Shortly after the “Stay-At-Home” orders were implemented by many states this past spring, Burns & McDonnell hosted a virtual round table where local governmental solid waste managers shared their perspective on the initial impacts of COVID-19 on their day-to-day operations. 

    Join our panel for a continuation of this discussion of COVID-19 driven program operational changes that are likely to have long term beneficial impacts on individual community programs such as:

    • Updating contingency operations plans to increase preparedness
    • Automating scale house services to increase efficiencies
    • Cross training staff to build team adaptability and resiliency
    • Gaining valuable insight on alternative solid waste and recycling collection practices

    Our panelists for this presentation are:

    • Katie Council, Republic Services
    • Erick Roberts, City of Springfield Solid Waste Program
    • Kathrina Donegan, St. Louis County Public Health
    • Robert Craggs, Burns & McDonnell

    The moderators will be Laura Drescher, Burns & McDonnell and Mike Sieczkowski, JRW Bioremediation.

    MWCC has contracted with Nova Consulting Group, Inc. to provide a 40-hour HAZWOPER Training consistent with OSHA's Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response standard (29 CFR 1910.10 and 1925.65). Students will receive a training manual, and at the conclusion of the course, they will receive validation certificates.

    Registration fee per registrant is $150; $50 for full-time students. Class is limited to the first 50 participants. A waiting list will be available in the event of cancellations. 

    All registrants must be employees of a Missouri state or local government agency, or companies that work in Missouri or a full-time student at a Missouri school.

    At the conclusion of this course, the participant will be able to:

    • Understand the purpose of OSHA and its role in regulating occupational safety
    • Use Site Characterization to establish problems that may exist in your workplace and measures that can be implemented to eliminate hazards
    • Identify hazardous materials existent in the workplace and the possible methods, symptoms and preventative measures of exposure
    • Be able to use a Safety Data sheets (SDS) to identify and properly handle hazardous materials
    • Become familiar with materials, compounds and mixtures that may present flammable, explosive, chemical or radiological hazards
    • Understand the importance of personal protective equipment in limiting hazardous exposure
    • Establish an effective Site Control Program to limit the risk of exposure to only those working in the hazardous work zone
    • Implement procedures for treating workers in the event of hazardous exposure

    As indicated, this class will be offered virtually.  Please review the requirements for the class below:

    • Participants will have one “Teams” log-in per day (5 different log-in links)
    • Nova will post the HAZWOPER manual on the first day of the course for downloading and/or printing.
    • Nova will daily, and periodically throughout the day, be downloading the participants list to record the student attendance.
    • This is a 40-hour course and attendance is required in order to complete the course and obtain a certificate.
    • Due to the Covid situation, no “hands-on” training of equipment and PPE will be conducted.  Equipment and PPE will be shown by the instructor.
    • Participants will need a printer to download/print the final exam, complete the exam, and return to the instructor by email for grading.  If you have .pdf standard you may be able to complete the test electronically (versus printing) and return.
    • Participants will be required to have their cameras on and be shown/present for the entirety for the course (as well as their name).  Nova would prefer computer involvement versus cell phone (which cell phone movement can be distracting to the other students).
