In addition to the initial training, 40 CFR265.16(c) requires 'facility personnel must take part in an annual review of the initial training.'
The training requirements for SQGs are found in 40 CFR Part 262.34(d). SQGs must ensure that their workers are:
'...thoroughly familiar with proper waste handling and emergency procedures relevant to their responsibilities during normal facility operations and emergencies'
This may require annual training by a facility or some other type of instruction appropriate to the wastes handled at the SQG site.
Refresher Training Required: Every 1 year(s).
