Billions in EPA fines proves need for effective training
EPA Regulations Workshop covers core industry rules
According to the Environmental Protection Agency’s recently released 2013 Annual Enforcement Results, EPA levied over $1.1 Billion in civil penalties for violations of environmental regulations last year. EPA also handed down over $4.5 in criminal fines and mandatory environmental projects in 2013, and sentenced violators to a combined 161 years in prison.
To help manufacturers and industry professionals comply with the many EPA air, water, and chemical programs that affect their day-to-day operations, Lion Technology will present the Complete Environmental Regulations nationwide this year.
The two-day workshop covers the latest requirements under major EPA programs, including shifting Greenhouse Gas rules under the Clean Air Act, chemical and product management standards under TSCA and FIFRA, and new rules for solvent-contaminated rags under RCRA hazardous waste rules. For those seeking ISO 14000 certification, this workshop is critical to identify “relevant legal requirements.”
Upcoming Dates and Cities
The Complete Environmental Regulations workshop will be presented in Detroit on March 31- April 1, Indianapolis on April 3-4, Chicago on April 7-8, and St. Louis on April 10-11. The full 2014 schedule is now available at Lion.com.
