Workers can be exposed to silica during abrasive blasting work, stonecutting, rock drilling, or the manufacturing of bricks, cement, and asphalt.

I have over 26 years of environmental compliance experience, and it has been some time since I have attended an environmental regulations workshop. I attended this course as preparation for EHS Audits for my six plants, and it was exactly what I was looking for.

My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
The instructor clearly enjoys his job and transmits that enthusiasm. He made a dry subject very interesting and fun.
Lion courses always set the bar for content, reference, and practical application. Membership and access to the experts is an added bonus.
