Lion Technology Hosting HAZMAT Management Workshops in Los Angeles, Oakland
February 16, 2011
Lion Technology Inc. will be hosting a two-day Hazardous/Toxic Waste Management Workshop in Los Angeles on March 10-11 and in Oakland on March 14-15.
Training is required annually for all hazardous waste facility personnel. This comprehensive workshop provides hands-on training on the critical rules managers must know to ensure compliance with the regulations. Students learn how to identify regulated waste, handle and store waste on site, prepare waste for off-site shipping, prepare and plan for emergencies, keep records, assure proper disposal, and prepare their site for new regulatory changes.
Lion Technology Director of Corporate Training, Scott Dunsmore, a national expert on hazardous waste management, stresses that proper hazardous waste handling, management, and disposal is critical, especially in light of rising enforcement, which it claims can be as high as $37,500 per day/per violation.
"With a slow economy and budget tightening, the reflex is to go towards shorter and inexpensive training options. However, with enforcement initiatives on the increase, shortchanging your training puts you at risk of costing you more in the long run," Dunsmore says.
Tuition is $795 per person, with group discounts available. Registration includes course reference materials, networking luncheon, certificate of achievement, and one year of follow-up support. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m., and the workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pre-registration is highly recommended.
