Superfund Job Training Initiative

 

The North Ridge Estates Superfund site project has also provided broader community benefits. In 2016 and 2017, a total of 32 Klamath Falls area residents successfully completed EPA’s Superfund Job Training Initiative (SuperJTI) program, which is a job-readiness program that provides training and employment opportunities for people living in communities affected by Superfund sites. Each graduate earned certificates in flagging, forklift, 10-hour Occupational Safety and Health Administration training, cardiopulmonary resuscitation and first aid, 40-hour hazardous waste operations and emergency response, and asbestos operations and maintenance training. After graduation, participants of the program were placed into jobs with remedial contractors on site to assist with the cleanup.
