Total Equipment Training – Vacuum Truck Operator Training

Vacuum Truck Operator Training Program- Total Equipment Training

Vacuum Trucks are, by definition, vacuum tanks that are truck-mounted or vac-trailer-mounted coupled with a high-velocity vacuum pump that hydraulically loads wet and dry material through vacuum hoses. Vacuum Trucks are used for the safe removal of hazardous or non-hazardous materials from a worksite.
Total Equipment Training has a comprehensive training program available for your specific training needs. We can tailor our program for your site specific needs.

OSHA Guidelines for Vacuum Truck Safety Procedures

OSHA has set guidelines for the safe removal of hazardous and non-hazardous substances as stated in OSHA Section 5 of Public Law 91-596, OSHA 29 USC 654 and 29 CFR 1910.120, as well as DOT CFR Parts 106-7, 171-180 and 390-397.
