Compliance Archives - September 2017
9/11/2017When natural disasters strike, EHS professionals have a responsibility to keep employees safe and protect their facilities. Already this summer, we’ve seen Hurricane Harvey disrupt the petrochemical industry in Texas and Hurricane Irma devastate the Caribbean and South Florida.
9/11/2017In order to control the concentration of ozone in ground-level atmosphere, the Clear Air Act (CAA) requires the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to study the effect of consumer and commercial products that emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in relation to those emissions’ potential to affect ozone buildup in the ambient air.
9/5/2017In this week’s EPA Enforcement Roundup, the former owner of a Cleveland electro-plating facility is wanted for allegedly drilling holes in tanks of hazardous chemicals in an effort to sabotage the plant. Also, NYC will pay EPA for CERCLA hazardous substance cleanup, and a Massachusetts meat facility will pay six figures for Clean Air Act and EPCRA violations.
9/5/2017If the level of air contaminants in the workplace is irritating, but not dangerously high, employees may choose to wear respirators even when not required.

I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
Lion does a great job summarizing and communicating complicated EH&S-related regulations.
Sr. Environmental Engineer
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.
I like the consistency of Lion workshops. The materials are well put together and instructors are top notch!
Permitting, Compliance & Environmental Manager
I really enjoyed this training. Even after years on both sides of the comprehension coin, I find myself still learning! The quality of the delivery exceeded much of the training I have received in the past.
The online course was well thought out and organized, with good interaction between the student and the course.
Material Release Agent
The instructor's energy, enthusiasm, and knowledge of the subject make the class a great learning experience!
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!
Process & Resource Administrator
Given the choice, I would do all coursework this way. In-person courses go very fast without the opportunity to pause or repeat anything.
Chemical Laboratory Manager
Course instructor was better prepared and presented better than other trainers. Course manual and references were easier to use as well.
