Compliance Archives - June 2018
6/25/2018While hazmat special permits and special provisions sound similar, they are actually quite different. You need to know what they are and how to apply them properly in order to remain in compliance with whichever code of hazmat/dangerous goods regulations you are following.
6/25/2018The Council on the Safe Transport of Hazardous Articles (COSTHA) recently shared an interpretation from the Mexican transportation authority that makes it clear that Mexico expects hazmat labels to be placed with the “vertex upwards,” i.e., as a square-on-point, or a square at a 45-degree angle, no matter the size of the package.
6/25/2018In a memo to Regional OSHA Administrators regarding the new permissible exposure limit (PEL) standards for respirable crystalline silica, the Agency stated its plan to “assist employers who are making good-faith efforts to meet the new standard’s requirements.”
6/22/2018At a June 5 Board meeting, the California State Water Board proposed bolstering California’s Underground Storage Tank program requirements to bring the State program up to date with revised Federal UST rules.

The instructor was energetic and made learning fun compared to dry instructors from other training providers.
International Trade Compliance Manager
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!
The instructor created a great learning environment.
CAD & Environmental Manager
I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
No comparison. Lion has the best RCRA training ever!!
The instructor was very engaging and helped less experienced people understand the concepts.
More thorough than a class I attended last year through another company.
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!

Our instructor was very dynamic and kept everyone's interest. Hazmat shipping can be a dry, complicated topic but I was engaged the entire time.

Excellent. I learned more in two days with Lion than at a 5-day program I took with another provider.
