Overview/Description
This course provides basic information on hazardous waste determination and characterization. In addition, this course describes the three types of generator status (Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity Generator, Small Quantity Generator, and Large Quantity Generator) along with applicable requirements. Generators must manage their hazardous waste per the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) regulations. Thus, accumulation, labeling, and other management requirements are described for both satellite accumulation areas and 90-day accumulation areas. Lastly, the importance of, and methods for, waste minimization and spill prevention and response are defined. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. Learner objectives for this course are to identify and characterize all wastes, properly label and manage waste containers, use a manifest when RCRA waste is transported, properly dispose of hazardous waste, prepare waste generation reports, and maintain compliance records.
