After a tiring day of travel and a walk from the stay to the office at 8degree temperature I was looking forward towards my first batch in Saudi. It was based on a very important concept i.e. HAZWOPERM (Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Management).

HAZWOPERM course has been a terminology coined by OSHA and is in effect one of the most eminent standards that regulates the safety and health of the employees involved in clean-up operations at uncontrolled hazardous waste sites, employees engaged in certain hazardous waste sites, employees engaged in certain hazardous waste treatment, storage, and disposal (TSD) operations, and in any emergency response activities involving hazardous substances. In short, HAZWOPERM applies to hazardous waste facilities.

The candidates were all from the same company called as Vinnell Arabia.

The candidates who came work for the logistic department in the company. They deal with the storage and transportation of hazardous materials.

At 11am the candidates were given a 10mins break to refresh themselves. After the break we moved on to the communication of hazardous materials and the various methods of methods of entry of hazardous materials.

After which we took a 1hr lunch break. The students were surprised that lunch was provided to them and they were very thankful for the same.

We the clarified a few doubts and with relation to the topics a case study was given to the students to prepare for submission on the next day. The topic was on the Bhopal gas tragedy.

Candidates were very eager to put forward their taughts with regards to the same.

Once we discussed about the use of PPEs we moved on to the responding to emergency release of hazardous substances. This topic was mainly supported with videos as it is a practical concept. The candidates showed great interest towards the videos and had a lot of interesting doubts regarding the various procedures. After this we had a 1hr lunch break. After lunch we discussed a particular case study with reference to confined space entry. Then to top it all off we ended the session with the pollution prevention and waste minimization.
