The New England Consortium

The New England Consortium (TNEC) at UMass Lowell is the region's model Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Worker Health and Safety training organization.

Since 1987, TNEC has provided dynamic hands-on, participatory health and safety training. With simulated works tasks and mock incidents, students gain a better understanding of work site hazards and how to properly respond in an emergency situation. We offer training on-site and at our training center for public agencies and private companies.
