The New England Consortium (TNEC)

The New England Consortium (TNEC) is the region's model Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response (HAZWOPER) Worker Health and Safety training organization. Since 1987, TNEC has provided hands-on, participatory health and safety training. TNEC students gain a better understanding of work site hazards and how to properly respond in an emergency situation.

In 1986, the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act was passed - mandating standards be developed to protect the health & safety of workers cleaning up sites contaminated with hazardous substances. Out of that law TNEC was born. Now 25 years later we're still going strong! View pictures.
