Compliance Archives - March 2017
3/13/2017For the second time in six months, EPA in January raised its fines for noncompliance with major environmental programs. We hope that providing information about EPA enforcement cases will help you identify and fix noncompliance issues that could leave your company facing costly penalties and future liability.
3/13/2017The Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments of 1986 (SDWA) required the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to establish criteria through which an aquifer may be declared a critical aquifer protection area. These aquifers are colloquially referred to as “sole source aquifers.” These are, essentially, aquifers that are the only drinking water supply for the population of a region.
3/13/2017Capitalizing on these OSHA lockout/tagout exceptions the correct way can prevent employees from ignoring or “working around” what some may see as overly burdensome or time-consuming safety requirements. By taking alternative, OSHA-approved precautions during machine maintenance or service, employees can keep normal operations moving smoothly without unnecessarily risking their safety or health.
3/7/2017In a memo aimed at field staff who perform workplace safety inspections, issued in September but posted to OSHA’s website recently, OSHA provides useful guidance for chemical industry professionals tasked with maintaining compliance with the updated GHS Hazard Communication Standard, or 2012 HCS.
I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.
Director of Regulatory Affairs
The instructor was great, explaining complex topics in terms that were easily understandable and answering questions clearly and thoroughly.
Lion does a great job summarizing and communicating complicated EH&S-related regulations.
Sr. Environmental Engineer
The instructor does a great job at presenting material in an approachable way. I have been able to save my company about $30,000 in the last year with what I have learned from Lion!
I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.
Tom Bush, Jr.
Lion's training was by far the best online RCRA training I've ever taken. It was challenging and the layout was great!
Hazardous Waste Professional
You blew the doors off the competition!
I was recently offered an opportunity to take my training through another company, but I politely declined. I only attend Lion Technology workshops.
Material Production/Logistics Manager
I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.
Corporate Product Stewardship Specialist
The price was reasonable, the time to complete the course was manageable, and the flexibility the online training allowed made it easy to complete.
