10/6/20175 DAYS LEFT TO SIGN UP! Next week at the Lion Training Center in Sparta, NJ, join full-time Lion instructors for in-person training to simplify the complex compliance requirements for managing hazardous waste (RCRA) and shipping hazardous materials (49 CFR).
Seating is limited at these exclusive training events, only available at the Lion Training Center in North Jersey!
2/3/2017If you manage hazardous waste in Texas, you’re already aware that the regulatory landscape is a bit more convoluted in the Lone Star State than elsewhere. The complex web of EPA and TCEQ requirements that affect you can make it difficult...
2/3/2017To help shippers protect personnel and maintain full compliance with the new DOT, IATA, and IMDG shipping regulations for 2017, Lion will present nationally trusted DG shipper training in Nashville, Charlotte, Houston, and more in February and March.
11/15/2016Next month, Lion will present the final RCRA Hazardous Waste Management Workshops of the year in Boston, Manchester, Hartford, North Jersey, and Philadelphia. Even if you've worked with RCRA for decades, there’s always something new to learn at this workshop, trusted nationwide since 1977.
11/14/2016Among the updates that will impact facilities in EPA's RCRA Generator Improvements Final Rule, EPA added clarification to key parts of the regulations. One such clarification is the addition of online training (i.e., computer-based training (CBT) or electronic training) as an acceptable method for training hazardous waste personnel.
3/10/2016The US DOT’s hazmat training standard for “hazmat employees” includes a specific provision that requires employers to certify that the hazmat employee has been “trained and tested, as required by this subpart." Hazmat employers often wonder: Is a copy of the test requried to prove to DOT that an employee has met the hazmat training standard at 49 CFR 172.704?
5/6/2014OSHA’s fire extinguisher standard sets specific standards for the use, maintenance, and testing of these devices, as well as requirements for training employees who may be called on to use a fire extinguisher in an emergency. When deciding what role fire extinguishers will play in their facility’s safety plan, employers have four options...

About 1 out of every 10 forklifts in operation each year is involved in some form of accident, whether it is tipping, crushing, or striking a pedestrian.

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
My experience with Lion classes has always been good. Lion Technology always covers the EPA requirements I must follow.
My experience with Lion training, both online and in the classroom, is that they are far better organized and provide a better sequential explanation of the material.
Manager, Dangerous Goods Transportation
The instructor was very very informative, helpful, understandable and pleasant. This course answered many questions I had, being new to this industry.
I chose Lion's online webinar because it is simple, effective, and easily accessible.
Environmental Health & Safety Technician
Lion was very responsive to my initial questions and the website was user friendly.
Supply Chain Director
Our instructor was very dynamic and kept everyone's interest. Hazmat shipping can be a dry, complicated topic but I was engaged the entire time.
Senior Director of EH&S
Convenient; I can train when I want, where I want.
Hazmat Shipping Professional
I can take what I learned in this workshop and apply it to everyday work and relate it to my activities.
I tried other environmental training providers, but they were all sub-standard compared to Lion. I will not stray from Lion again!
