It's true. An ounce of training is worth a pound of cure. Many harmful incidents could have been prevented if staff had been trained to be aware of and understand how to deal with particular circumstances. The team at American Osage Environmental (AOE) is unique in that they are subject matter specialists as well as trainers. This is an advantage in that our environmental and safety specialists understand the system design and can translate required operations and safety information into a systematic and successful approach to training. We can customize and incorporate your company's sites and equipment in our training courses so your employees can see first hand the existing conditions relating to their safety.

We offer a variety of training classes, and can customize each class to meet your specific needs and situation, bringing in specific examples you have experienced directly. The training classes we offer include:

RRP Certification:

RRP Manual RRP Initial Class - Certified Renovator
The Certified Renovator is an individual who works for a certified firm. A Certified Renovator must be assigned to each project and must be present on the job site for certain specific phases of the job. A Certified Renovator may not delegate these specific responsibilities to a non-certified person. The Certified Renovator is also responsible for training all non-certified workers who will be doing actual work on the project. However, non-certified workers may not perform the specific duties required of the Certified Renovator.

EPA's RRP website ( has more information on the rule itself. The site also has a handbook to help contractors understand the RRP. (Small Entity Compliance Guide to Renovate Right)
