About Us

Our History

Environmental Training and Compliance, established in 1989, is a health and safety consulting company specializing in employee training and program management. Our courses focus on hazardous chemical operations and emergency response procedures. These certification classes are developed to meet federal and state Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements.

At ETAC, we stress the practical application of the regulations to ensure “competency-based” training. Our instructors have extensive experience with professional backgrounds in industrial hygiene and emergency response. Our sessions include interactive classroom workshops and “hands-on” use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
