At manufacturing and industrial facilities nationwide, managing hazardous waste can be a burdensome and expensive responsibility. Compliance professionals must manage their waste to exacting standards and pay to have the waste hauled away, treated, and disposed of safely. In addition to these management, treatment, and disposal rules, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requires annual training for facility personnel at hazardous waste generator sites.
The high cost of proper hazardous waste disposal and the threat of future liability for improper disposal and environmental contamination have driven many facilities to work toward minimizing the volume of hazardous waste generated on site. As more companies move toward these “zero landfill” initiatives, streamlining hazardous waste operations becomes critical to gaining and maintaining a competitive advantage.
To help experienced EHS managers discover new management strategies to minimize waste and lower waste treatment and disposal costs, Lion Technology will present the Advanced Hazardous Waste Management Workshop
in area cities in July and August. In addition to meeting the US EPA’s annual training mandate under RCRA, this unique workshop emphasizes cost-cutting options such as:
- Capitalizing on waste ID and counting exclusions
- Keeping solid waste “out of the system” of RCRA
- Treating waste without a RCRA permit
- Best practices for waste minimization and pollution control
- Managing used oil and universal waste, and more
The workshop will be presented in Kansas City on July 14-15, St. Louis on July 17-18, Chicago on July 21-22, Detroit on July 24-25, Cincinnati on August 4-5, and Pittsburgh on August 7-8. Enrollment includes annotated 40 CFR RCRA regulations, a searchable Reference CD, a how-to reference workbook, a pocket-sized quick reference guide, and 365 days of updates and compliance support. The cost for the two-day workshops is $895/student. Group pricing is available.
