Failure to properly dispose of used oil is a serious, but little recognized, environmental problem. This half-hour course reviews the various regulatory requirements associated with used oil management primarily from a generator's perspective. The goal of this training is to provide you with an overview of the used oil management programs and explain the different regulatory scenarios that apply to used oil. The training also provides basic information for used oil handlers whose activities are regulated by the Used Oil Management Standards. The content in this course is designed to comply with the intent of the applicable regulatory requirements. The learning objectives of the course are to describe what constitutes used oil and when used oil is considered hazardous waste; indicate the regulatory path that must be followed based on specific used oil mixtures; identify used oil generators and discuss the regulatory requirements they need to follow; state the used oil record-keeping, transporting, and recycling requirements; and summarize how used oil filters are managed.
