About this Workshop

Generators of hazardous waste are required to train their employees involved with hazardous waste management.

State and federal regulations require hazardous waste generators to train employees involved with hazardous waste management. Facility personnel must 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 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 environmental managers and coordinators to on-site hazardous waste handlers.

NC hazardous waste leadership will provide insights into policy and initiatives that affect your business. Compliance personnel will present all aspects of safe waste handling practices required for regulatory compliance. You will learn what inspectors look for at your facility through a full-scale inspection exercise. Technical support staff will discuss and interpret hazardous waste regulations as they apply to your business. Waste minimization and enforcement will be reviewed.

The workshop includes plenty of time for questions during each presentation as well as during breaks and lunch. Attendees with specific questions prior to the workshop can also submit those questions to NCMA. NCMA will then provide the questions to DWM staff anonymously so that they can address the questions during the workshop.
