9/1/2020When does a material become a hazardous waste? While the phrase “point of generation” is used in the regulations, it is not clearly defined..

Much better than my previous class with another company. The Lion instructor made sense, kept me awake and made me laugh!
Enterprise Safety Manager
I have been to other training companies, but Lion’s material is much better and easier to understand.
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.
Lion provided an excellent introduction to environmental regulations, making the transition to a new career as an EHS specialist less daunting of a task. Drinking from a fire hose when the flow of water is lessened, is much more enjoyable!
I chose Lion's online webinar because it is simple, effective, and easily accessible.
Environmental Health & Safety Technician
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
The instructor was probably the best I ever had! He made the class enjoyable, was humorous at times, and very knowledgeable.
