CHICAGO, Ill. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Annual training is mandatory for employees who generate, manage, or dispose of a RCRA hazardous waste. Training must be job-specific and cover waste management procedures such as waste classification, proper container and tank storage, manifesting, emergency response, and disposal. Failure to comply with the RCRA hazardous waste rules can result in penalties up to $37,500 per day/per violation. Effective training is the best line of defense to assure regulatory compliance.
Lion Technology Director of Corporate Training, Scott Dunsmore, a national expert on hazardous waste management, stresses that proper hazardous waste handling, management, and disposal is essential, especially in light of recent superfund liability cases. Dunsmore says, “It is imperative for industry to keep up-to-date with changing regulations and new waste management concepts. EH&S excellence can provide your company with a competitive advantage in today’s business environment.”
