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.

Lion is easily and consistently the best option for compliance training. I've learned new information from every instructor I've had.
Attending Lion Technology classes should be mandatory for every facility that ships or stores hazmat.
The instructor made the class enjoyable. He presented in a very knowledgeable, personable manner. Best class I've ever attended. Will take one again.

I like Lion's workshops the best because they really dig into the information you need to have when you leave the workshop.

Well designed and thorough program. Excellent summary of requirements with references. Inclusion of regulations in hard copy form, as well as full electronic with state pertinent regulations included is a great bonus!
The course was very informative and presented in a way that was easily understood and remembered. I would recommend this course.

I will never go anywhere, but to Lion Technology.
This training broke down the regulations in an easy-to-understand manner and made them less overwhelming. I now feel I have the knowledge to make more informed decisions.
I have attended other training providers, but Lion is best. Lion is king of the hazmat jungle!!!
