Workshops Complying with North Carolina Hazardous Waste Regulations
Every year, usually in May, the Hazardous Waste Section conducts a series of workshops outlining how to comply with the RCRA regulations. These workshops are conducted by the Inspectors who will be evaluating your facility for compliance. The link below shows the current dates and locations and information on how to register.
Hazardous Waste Compliance Training for Generators
Large quantity generators of hazardous waste must train their employees. The regulations require facility personnel to complete classroom or on-the-job training to become familiar with proper hazardous waste management and emergency procedures for the wastes handled at the facility. In addition facility personnel must take part in an annual review of their initial training. Now you can learn first hand what the regulators from the North Carolina Division of Waste Management expect from hazardous waste generators and treatment, storage and disposal facilities. The Workshop is designed for facility personnel with hazardous waste duties ranging from facility environmental coordinators to on-site hazardous waste handlers. Attendees will go through a full-scale inspection presented by the hazardous waste field staff. You will learn what inspectors look for at your facility. Hazardous waste regulations will be discussed focusing on interpretation of these regulations as they apply to your business. Waste minimization and enforcement will be reviewed. Last year the state fined a North Carolina facility a record $550,000 for failure to comply with the hazardous waste regulations. Learn first hand how to avoid such violations at your facility.
The registration fee includes a RCRA Compliance Manual designed by the field staff of the Hazardous Waste Section. This manual will provide the tools and information needed to allow continuing compliance with the hazardous waste regulations. The registration fee also includes lunch and breaks.
