January 7, 2008 – Epping, NH – EnviroVantage, Inc., a leader in the safe handling of hazardous materials at building and historic reconstruction sites, announced today that its management team has successfully completed annual refresher courses in asbestos and lead abatement training.
The courses, required by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) respectively, took place at EnviroVantage‘s state-of-the-art training facility at its Epping headquarters.
Wendy Johnson, an instructor with the Institute for Environmental Education (IEE), facilitated the asbestos course on Thursday, December 27, 2007 for twenty EnviroVantage supervisors. The eight-hour course includes a written test workers must pass to maintain their asbestos licenses in compliance with OSHA requirements.

Vicki Shallow, a lead specialist with New Hampshire‘s Department of Environmental Services, audited the IEE-led session to ensure the course content covered all Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) standards and guidelines.

We avail customers and associates use of our training room for any purpose that furthers our mission of eco-friendly materials management.”
