Hospital Fined $108K For RCRA Violations
EPA announced the settlement last week on January 27. EPA cited various alleged violations of RCRA in its statement, including:
- Failure to label and date hazardous waste containers;
- Storage of hazardous waste for greater than 90 days without a storage permit;
- Failure to maintain aisle space necessary for emergency response;
- Failure to minimize the risk of release of hazardous waste; and
- Failure to conduct weekly inspections of the hazardous waste accumulation area.
US EPA recently increased its maximum monetary civil penalties for violations of air, water, chemical, and hazardous waste programs. The Final Rule increases maximum penalty amounts to keep pace with inflation. As of December 23, 2020, the maximum fine for RCRA violations is $76,764 per day, per violation.

This was the 1st instructor that has made the topic actually enjoyable and easy to follow and understand. Far better than the "other" training providers our company has attended!

Lion was very extensive. There was a lot of things that were covered that were actually pertaining to what I do and work with. Great Job. I will be coming back in three years!

I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
Very well structured, comprehensive, and comparable to live training seminars I've participated in previously. I will recommend the online course to other colleagues with training requirement needs.
I used the IT support number available and my issue was resolved within a few minutes. I don't see anything that could have made it better.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
Very good. I have always appreciated the way Lion Tech develops, presents and provides training and materials.
Energetic/enthusiastic! Made training enjoyable, understandable and fun!
