New at—RCRA & DOT Hazmat Training for Personnel

Posted on 10/20/2017 by Roger Marks

To help managers ensure personnel are fully trained in US DOT hazmat and RCRA hazardous waste regulations that impact their jobs, Lion Technology launched two new online courses this month.

Storing & Shipping Hazardous Waste—Ops (Course Code RCRA 231)

2_55_gallon_Drums_remove_hand_Truckl.jpgThis new online course is designed specifically for operations personnel who have responsibilities for handling or managing hazardous waste on-site, and who also prepare shipments for ground transport.

The online course covers critical RCRA compliance topics for personnel, and includes hazmat general awareness, hazmat security awareness, and function-specific training on preparing hazardous waste shipments for transport in compliance with the 49 CFR Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR).

This course is designed to satisfy both US EPA’s initial or annual RCRA training standard (now found at 40 CFR 262.17(a)) and US DOT’s initial or 3-year hazmat training standard at 49 CFR 172.704.
