The targeted population for the DOEWTP is workers who are engaged in hazardous waste remediation, hazardous materials transportation, warehousing, and emergency response on DOE sites. The long term objectives and specific aims of the IBT Consortium are to increase worker, community, and environmental safety and resilience by training workers to appropriately respond to accidental releases of hazardous materials; work safely on hazardous waste remediation projects on DOE sites; and safely transport hazardous materials, including radioactive materials, via truck or rail. The IBT Consortium will access the nationwide population of targeted workers through established partnerships with appropriate local unions/lodges, community-based organizations, and other partners to deliver training to 15,200 workers during the 5-year project period.
