Compliance Archives - September 2018
9/25/2018The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) published a Final Rule in the Federal Register on Tuesday, September 25 to remove requirements for electronically controlled pneumatic brake systems (ECP brake systems) on “high hazard flammable trains” of HHFTs.
9/24/2018We don’t get into pop culture too often here at Lion News, we’re mostly too busy studying the CFR, State regulations, and the Federal Register for updates that impact industry professionals. But this week, we saw a classic movie that we think hazardous materials professionals will relate to and enjoy.
9/24/2018The RCRA hazardous waste rules regulate hazardous wastes from “cradle-to-grave.” But as generators, our responsibilities for compliance actually go beyond the grave. When you send waste off for disposal, it pays to know for sure that you’ve given your treatment, storage, and disposal facility (TSDF) the information they will need to properly lay your waste to rest.

Therefore, many oil and gas E&P wastes are excluded from the RCRA Subtitle C hazardous waste management standards...
9/17/2018In this week's EPA Enforcement Roundup, a wood treatment facility and a city power and water authority will pay for hazardous waste and Clean Water Act violations, respectively. In addition, EPA will collect a civil penalty from a city-owned incinerator in New Hampshire...
9/17/2018The medical evaluation is a key component of OSHA's Respiratory Protection Standard at 29 CFR 1910.134. This week, we guide safety managers through the steps of a typical medical evaluation, which must take place even before the employee is fit-tested on the equipment.
9/10/2018The RCRA hazardous waste management program provides a “cradle-to-grave” management system that applies to all hazardous waste generators. But when the government creates rules broad enough to apply to everyone, those rules don’t necessarily work well in every real-world situation...
