ALBANY, N.Y. (CitizenWire) — Lion Technology Inc., a nationally recognized regulatory compliance training firm, will present its one-day Managing Hazardous Waste in New York workshop series during the month of June. This training program is designed to help the regulated community meet New York’s annual training mandate. Workshops will be held in Buffalo on June 7; Syracuse on June 9; White Plains on June 11; Rochester on June 14; Albany on June 16; and Long Island on June 18, 2010.
Many companies are required to comply with the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) regulations regarding the generation and handling of hazardous waste. Typical waste subject to regulation includes spent solvents and used rags, expired chemicals, electronic equipment, batteries, fluorescent and HID lamps, computer monitors, and other waste derived from manufacturing processes. Employees must know how to properly identify waste, handle and store waste, manifest and package waste for shipment, and assure proper waste treatment and disposal.
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 is now $37,500 per day/per violation.
Tuition is $495 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 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Pre-registration is highly recommended.
