EPA Issues New Controls for Mercury Articles
- Barometers, manometers, hygrometers, and psychrometers that were in service prior to May 6, 2011 (the date this rule was proposed);
- Elemental mercury in portable battery-powered motor-aspirated psychrometers that contain fewer than 7 grams of elemental mercury (an ongoing continuous use);
- Sphygmomanometers (a type of manometer) when manufactured, imported, or processed for use as a medical device;
- Manometers used in the natural gas industry (covered by a previous SNUR); and
- Elemental mercury manufactured or processed solely for export (provided it is marked in accordance with applicable sections of TSCA).
- The projected volume of manufacturing and processing of the chemical substance;
- The extent to which a use changes the type, form, magnitude, or duration of exposure humans or the environment will be subjected to;
- The possible manner and methods of manufacturing, processing, distribution, and disposal of said chemical substance; and
- Any other “relevant factors.”

The instructor made the class very enjoyable and catered to the needs of our group.
Very witty instructor, made the long times sitting bearable. One of the few training courses I can say I actually enjoyed.

The instructor was very patient and engaging - willing to answer and help explain subject matter.

Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.

Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!

I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
Hazardous Waste Technician
I was able to present my scenario to the instructor and worked thru the regulations together. In the past, I attended another training firm's classes. Now, I have no intention of leaving Lion!

Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.
