RCRA Training for Life Sciences, VSQGs, CESQGs, and SQGs

The EPA’s Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulates the management of hazardous waste. In addition, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) enforce their state Hazardous Waste Regulations (HWR) that govern hazardous waste generation, treatment, storage, and disposal. Facility personnel assigned to the management of hazardous waste need to know how to conduct their duties in a manner that ensures compliance with the federal and state rules.

This RCRA Training for Life Sciences course educates generators of hazardous chemical waste and employees signing hazardous waste shipping documents (manifests) how to comply with the requirements for Small Quantity Generator and Very Small Quantity Generators, also known as Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generators. Hazardous Waste (RCRA) training is required prior to assignment of duties and at least annually thereafter.
