Audits are proving to review training records.  Be sure your team is confident and compliant.

Be Audit Ready!  Tuesday, July 18th!  

ERG presents an enjoyable learning experience that exceeds /meets regulatory requirements.  Our training professionals provide field experiences and examples that deepens knowledge and keeps the class engaged.

Regulations are constantly changing.  Stay up-to-date with the latest regulations for managing your hazardous waste from cradle to grave under the US EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations.

Build team confidence working with the RCRA hazardous waste rules to keep employees safe, prevent releases, and avoid costly EPA civil penalties and liability. EPA requires annual RCRA training for all hazardous waste facility personnel. In July 2016, US EPA raised the fines for RCRA hazardous waste violations. Fines are now as high as $71,264 per day, per violation.

The training includes an overview of hazardous waste management laws and regulations, a guide to complying with hazardous waste regulations including how to recognize hazardous wastes, how to manage waste correctly on site, how to properly select, label and mark waste containers, how to prepare shipments for transport to treatment, storage and disposal facilities, and how to properly keep records for compliance and enforcement.

This class also includes a review of the DOT’s regulations for shipping hazardous materials, including the Hazardous Materials Table (HMT), proper shipping name, hazard classes, marking and labeling, shipping papers, packing groups, and security.

This is a refresher course and is intended for individuals who are familiar with both RCRA and DOT requirements. Hands on materials are used throughout the class.

The class fee includes a light breakfast, beverages, lunch and the course materials.
