May 7, 2010 – When workers handle hazardous waste or ship hazardous materials, training is not just a good idea, it’s the law. According to the EPA, workers who handle hazardous waste must be trained annually, and the federal DOT requires that workers involved in the shipment of hazardous materials be trained at least every three years. In addition, SARA Title III (Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know) requires you to inform your surrounding community about your facility's hazardous substances and releases - accidental and permitted.

The DOT/RCRA Annual Update and Refresher course is the perfect way to meet both RCRA annual training requirements and DOT 49 CFR recurrent training requirements as well as learn about new requirements that have been enacted over the past year.

Attending the SARA Title III Workshop will inform you of the latest changes in SARA Title III reporting impacting your facility. With the Section 313 TRI reporting deadline quickly approaching July 1, you will learn all you need to know to determine which toxic chemicals must be reported for your facility and how to meet your TRI reporting obligations for these chemicals. How to report using EPA’s TRI-MEweb software will be included in the workshop and you will have the opportunity to ask your highly experienced instructor specific questions related to TRI reporting for your facility.

Environmental Resource Center, the leading provider of environmental and safety training, will present the training in Charlotte, NC at the Holiday Inn – Charlotte University on May 12 – 13, 2010. Classes begin at 8 am and end at 5 pm each day.

DOT/RCRA Annual Update and Refresher will be taught May 12, 2010.

SARA Title III will be taught on May 13 at the same location.

Registration for the mandatory training is available by calling 919-469-1585 or at http://www.ercweb.com/classes

Now in its 28th year, Environmental Resource Center trains not only thousands of industry personnel every year, the company also trains personnel from most of the State and Federal agencies that enforce the regulations.
