Credit: 2 PDH
Subject Matter Expert: Mark Knarr, P.E., CEM, LEED AP BD+C, PMP, CCEA, GPCP
In Regulatory Requirements for Hazardous Waste Generators, you'll learn ...
- How hazardous waste generators must manage the accumulation, tracking, labeling, and recordkeeping of hazardous waste
- What is meant by the terms “generator” and “co-generator”
- The three classes of generators defined in 40 CFR Part 262
- Regulations pertaining to accumulation in tanks, containers, containment buildings, and on drip pads
Simply defined, hazardous wastes are liquid, solid, contained gas, or sludge wastes that contain properties that are dangerous or potentially harmful to human health or the environment. The proper management and disposal of hazardous waste minimizes the impacts of these wastes on human health and the environment. 40 CFR Part 262 prescribes how generators (persons producing the waste) must manage the accumulation, tracking, labeling, and recordkeeping of hazardous waste based on one of three classes: large quantity generator, small quantity generator, and conditionally exempt small quantity generator (LQG, SQG, and CESQG, respectively). These classes are based on the generate rate of hazardous waste.
This course covers the three generator classes of hazardous waste and their applicable requirements. The target audience is engineers and managers whose responsibilities include management of hazardous waste, but may have limited experience with it.
