RCRA and Hazmat Site Assessments

Both US DOT's Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) and US EPA's RCRA hazardous waste rules consist of thousands of pages of requirements, restrictions, exemptions, exclusions, and special conditions. The rules that impact industry change constantly, and achieving compliance can feel like shooting at a moving target. Meanwhile, you’ve got a job to do, a reputation to uphold, and employees to protect.

A Site Assessment with Lion will empower your team with a robust understanding of the RCRA and/or 49 CFR requirements that impact your operations. You will gain a solid handle on the regulations you must know and simplify the everyday job of compliance.

Identify Compliance Gaps and Opportunities

By reviewing your current hazmat or RCRA compliance program, Lion can identify any existing gaps in your organization’s institutional knowledge or day-to-day procedures.

Lion can provide answers to questions like:
  • Are there critical EHS or dangerous goods regulations that we’re not aware of?
  • Have we fallen out of compliance due to recently added or revised regulations?
  • Can we cut costs without sacrificing safety or compliance?
  • Are there opportunities to simplify or streamline our compliance training program?
  • Can we make minor or major changes that reduce our compliance costs?

When Lion visits your site to assess your compliance with hazardous materials or waste regulations, we take time to get to know your operations. Lion will review Safety Data Sheets, shipping papers or Manifests, hazmat classification/Waste ID data, and other documentation to get a clear view of what you do and how you do it.

When the Assessment is complete, we will lead an informal debrief session to identify findings, make recommendations, and answer your questions. You will also receive a copy of your assessor’s evaluation checklist for your records​.
