Learn to Properly Identify, Accumulate, and Dispose Hazardous Waste
Accumulating, managing, and shipping hazardous waste in full compliance with the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) requires an understanding of requirements that apply at generation, accumulation, storage, transportation, and disposal stages. This annual course delivers a breakdown of current requirements, presented within a context that simplifies understanding.
RCRA training is required for hazardous waste personnel.
Large Quantity Generators must provide training to hazardous waste personnel within 6 months of hire or assignment. Untrained personnel may not perform hazardous waste functions unsupervised until training is complete (40 CFR 262.17(a)(7)(ii)).
Large Quantity Generators must provide repeat hazardous waste training annually (40 CFR 262.17(a)(7)(iii)).
Small Quantity Generators must similarly provide training to ensure hazardous waste personnel are “thoroughly familiar with proper waste handling and emergency procedures, relevant to their responsibilities during normal facility operations and emergencies (40 CFR 262.16(b)(9)(iii)).
Our Hazardous Waste Compliance Manager™ training course provides both beginning and returning waste generators, handlers, and managers with the tools and understanding needed to meet federal and state training requirements and master the complexities of RCRA, while avoiding the confusion and faulty interpretations that can lead to regulatory pitfalls. This course incorporates a series of presentations, in-depth discussions, and practical exercises designed to guide participants towards mastery of RCRA. The fifth day provides attendees with the tools and training necessary to prepare and sign your hazardous waste manifest in accordance with DOT hazmat training requirements.
