To help New York’s hazardous waste generators meet compliance training requirements under state-specific NYSDEC rules, Lion Technology today launched the New York Hazardous Waste Management Online Course.
Modeled after Lion’s long-running Managing Hazardous Waste in New York Workshop
, the new online course helps hazardous waste managers and personnel build a step-by-step approach to compliance with the 6 NYCRR hazardous waste rules.”
Why a New York Hazardous Waste Course?
In states with distinct hazardous waste requirements—New York, Texas, California, and others—training that covers only Federal RCRA rules is not enough to ensure compliance.
New York’s hazardous waste regulations are more stringent and complex than the Federal standards, and knowing the latest state rules is critical to compliance in the State. The New York Hazardous Waste Management Online Course
will help professionals identify the distinct differences between Federal and New York hazardous waste rules.
Knowing NY Hazardous Waste Rules Is Crucial
“If you don’t know your state’s rules, you may be unaware of extra requirements that affect your site. You could even be missing crucial parts of your hazardous waste management plan, like waste streams not covered under the Federal regulations,” says Lion Technology Manager of Content Development Jennifer Harris, who led the charge to develop the new online course.
By covering the state-specific rules that apply to sites in New York—including management of PCBs as hazardous waste, waste management in sole-source aquifers, NYSDEC reporting requirements, and more—this new online course takes the guesswork out of compliance with both State and Federal RCRA rules.
