Hazardous Waste TODAY for Small Quantity Generators (SQG)

Modern society deals with waste in a variety of ways, from incinerators to landfills, but not all waste can be treated in a similar fashion. Hazardous waste is fundamentally different, and there may be severe penalties if it is disposed of in the same manner as household waste. Hazardous waste can negatively impact human health and the natural environment - they may easily cause injury and ecological disaster if handled incorrectly. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has added approximately 60 items to a law known as the Resource, Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). RCRA touches on almost every aspect of hazardous waste management at generating facilities, and this training lesson instructs employees on these new additions from the Generators Improvement Rule.

There are many examples of hazardous waste, including chemicals, pesticides, and cleaning fluids. This course covers the four key characteristics to help recognize whether a waste is hazardous. The video also demonstrates how to safely store, dispose of and transport hazardous materials.

Even if a facility generates little hazardous waste, or if there are appropriate safeguards in place, an emergency may still occur. You will be given guidance on emergency preparedness here as well. Utilize the information provided in this training to safely work with hazardous wastes.
