Management Strategies for Using RCRA ExclusionsAt first glance, managing hazardous waste in a way that relieves the generator from some RCRA regulations may seem very appealing. In some cases though, these management strategies may not provide as much relief as initially believed and may make subsequent management decisions even more difficult. One scenario that raises this challenge is the EPA’s exclusion for certain de-characterized hazardous wastes...
Package and Container Communication: DOT vs. GHSWhen dealing with hazardous constituents, hazard communication is a must to protect workers, property, and the general public.

Greenhouse Gas Reporting in 2014This week, Lion News continues to examine the ongoing cycle of Federal and State reporting requirements under major US EPA regulatory programs.

My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
You blew the doors off the competition!
I think LION does an excellent job of any training they do. Materials provided are very useful to my day-to-day work activities.
I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
This is the best RCRA training I've experienced! I will be visiting Lion training again.
Cynthia L. Logsdon
Principal Environmental Engineer
The training was impressive. I am not a fan of online training but this was put together very well. I would recommend Lion to others.
The workshop covered a lot of information without being too overwhelming. Lion is much better, more comprehensive than other training providers.
The instructor was very patient and engaging - willing to answer and help explain subject matter.
Material Control Superintendent
Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
