Compliance Archives - May 2017
5/26/2017Today’s the day! The US EPA’s Hazardous Waste Generator Improvement Rule will have a major impact on the way sites nationwide manage waste. The new rules take effect today, May 30th, 2017, across the USA.
5/23/2017“A rose by any other name would smell as sweet,” Shakespeare wrote in Romeo and Juliet. The same might be said for hazardous materials—no matter what Proper Shipping Name you choose, your material will exhibit the same hazards and be just as dangerous to supply-chain workers and emergency response personnel. That’s why choosing the right shipping name is so important.
5/22/2017This week, our EPA Enforcement Roundup includes two insurance companies paying for Superfund cleanup, an iron nugget producer paying a six-figure Clean Air Act settlement, and a metal recycler in Puerto Rico that allegedly violated the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and RCRA.
5/22/2017Have you ever wished there were some (legal) way around the RCRA hazardous waste requirements? Recycling certain hazardous secondary materials offers a number of ways for facilities to exclude those materials from US EPA’s definition of solid waste (DSW). If a material is not a solid waste, then by definition it cannot be a hazardous waste.
5/19/2017From OSHA's website: “OSHA is not accepting electronic submissions of injury and illness logs at this time, and intends to propose extending the July 1, 2017 date by which certain employers are required to submit the information from their completed 2016 Form 300A electronically.”

The instructor was excellent. They knew all of the material without having to read from a notepad or computer.
The instructor's energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the subject make the class a great learning experience!
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
Lion is at the top of the industry in compliance training. Course content and structure are updated frequently to make annual re-training enjoyable. I like that Lion has experts that I can contact for 1 year after the training.
Excellent class, super instructor, very easy to follow. No rushing through material. Would like to take his class again.
