Proiect Mission and Scope The HazWaste Project, housed within the Martin School of Public Policy and Administration, serves as the evaluation group for the Midwest Consortium for Hazardous Waste Worker Training. Under the sponsorship of NIEHS, the Consortium is composed of 14 centers; and it provides health and safety training for workers in the hazardous materials industry who might respond to emergencies or remediate sites. In addition, since September 11, 2001, the Consortium has incorporated weapons of mass destruction and homeland security issues into the training to meet new concerns. Since 1987 the HazWaste project has been headed by Dr. Philip Berger, now Professor Emeritus in the Martin School. The group's main function is to evaluate the Consortium's effectiveness and assist Central Administration and the training centers. The major research activities are highlighted below.
