For the last year, Spectral Labs has been working on a program based on the RAILS platform for National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). The program developed specific training designed to meet the mandates of 29 CFR 1910.120 for HAZWOPER training required for workers accessing Superfund sites and other employees who are exposed to hazardous substances through the clean-up, treatment, storage, and disposal of hazardous waste, directly tackling the goals of the NIEHS Hazardous Waste Worker Training Program.
