Building Capacity with American Indians and Alaska Natives to Handle Hazardous Materials and Respond to Emergencies
Tribal nations across the U.S. are self-governing entities, operating their own solid and hazardous waste programs, utility systems, and law enforcement agencies. The NIEHS Worker Training Program (WTP) funds health and safety training for American Indian and Alaska Native tribal workers and communities across the country. These training efforts protect workers, improve emergency and disaster response, increase employment opportunities, and build capacity in tribal communities.
