About Us * Our Courses  * Our Management

Environmental Options, Inc.
provides high caliber training courses with carefully developed curricula and the integration of quality instructors.

Training must cover the areas of worker health and safety, personnel protective equipment and hazardous risk assessment, allowing the worker to read/execute the  site specific to safety and health plan. 

Environmental Options, Inc.
utilizes a lecture/ exercise/ demonstration method that, coupled with instructors who have actual "field" experience on remediation and emergency response projects, promotes high retention of course information.

Our instructors, experienced in both RCRA and emergency response, conduct our courses with an emphasis on "hands-on" demonstrations, providing trainees practical application as well as textbook knowledge. 

Environemental Options can also help you maximize your emergency response program with specifically designed Incident Command and Hazardous Material Specialist drills.  Aside from a real catastrophe, no test measures readiness more efficiently than simulated emergency situations.

With our program at your site, our professionals will create specialized scenarios to simulate actual emergency situations.  Because emergency response, spill response and contingency plans get developed, but are often never tested under "life-like" conditions, this type of training is truly the best test to identify the need for change, whether it be in preparation, training, procedure or communication.
