The Ohio Public Utilities Commission (PUCO) published a news release that highlights training programs provided by the Cincinnati State Workforce Development Center though the WDC’s Center for HazMat, Rescue and Safety.

The WDC has received PUCO grant funding for 24 years and is the second-largest recipient of PUCO grant funding to support training on how to respond appropriately to hazardous materials (HazMat) incidents.

Between early October 2020 and March 2021, the WDC provided training for more than 650 Ohio public sector personnel.
