More Hazardous Waste Training Needed at Sacramento City Facilities, Judge Says
The Sacramento Bee reports that the judgement resulted from a DTSC investigation into how the city handles spills of hazardous waste and city employees’ ability to identify hazardous waste subject to Title 22 regulations.
Under the terms of the settlement, the city will pay $74,667 and fund a supplemental environmental project (SEP) to help other local generators keep their hazardous waste training and waste handling practices up-to-date. As part of the SEP, the city will fund five years of hazardous waste training and hazardous materials training for businesses in Yolo County.
Hazardous waste generators in California face the most stringent, complex requirements in the nation. In addition to US EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) requirements, the California DTSC creates unique, state-specific standards for generators.
Title 22 Hazardous Waste Training for California Generators
If your site generates California Hazardous Waste Management, knowing the Federal RCRA rules is not enough! California’s State Health & Safety Code and DTSC regulations set additional, state-specific requirements you must follow to avoid costly civil penalties and future liability.
Be confident you know the specific hazardous waste management and reporting rules that apply to industry in California. At the California Hazardous Waste Management Workshop, satisfy your EPA and DTSC training requirement and get up to speed with the latest laws, rules, and CUPA interpretations that affect your business.

I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
I love that the instructor emphasized the thought process behind the regs.

Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
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.
Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.

No comparison. Lion has the best RCRA training ever!!
I had a positive experience utilizing this educational program. It was very informative, convenient, and rewarding from a career perspective.
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!

The instructor was very knowledgeable and provided pertinent information above and beyond the questions that were asked.
You blew the doors off the competition!
