    Hazardous Waste and Disaster Response Training
    In collaboration with The New England Consortium (TNEC), NH COSH offers specialized training to workers who respond to hazardous waste emergencies, clean up hazardous waste sites, and emergency responders to disasters.

    TNEC provides dynamic hands-on, participatory health and safety training. With simulated work tasks and mock incidents, students gain a better understanding of work site hazards and how to properly respond in an emergency situation. In addition to open enrollment classes, TNEC can custom design training to address the specific client needs.

    Indoor Air Quality - Healthy Schools
    NH COSH can help facilitate the training of a Healthy School team in your school to help improve the indoor and outdoor environments and the health of students and staff. The program provides free assessment, training, technical assistance and mentoring to address environmental and asthma management needs identified by the team. The training is provided for the school community, administration, teachers, parents, para-professionals, maintenance no one is left out.

    The one-on-one mentoring process brings common sense and order to indoor air quality issues while together we look for the low cost solutions throughout the process. This training increases a school team’s ability to sustain the process even after NH COSH is finished.

    Throughout the process you will gain the tools and information to help you make healthier informed choices about your school’s environment. Most suggestions call for only minimal actions by in-house staff making a big difference in the schools health.

    For more information, call or Contact Us.

    Union Workers
    NH COSH can design customized training for your local, whether your members need job-specific safety information, training on workers' compensation, or information about how the local can advocate for safer work places.
