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 lubrication and related oil management primarily from a generator's perspective. The goal of this training is to provide you with an overview of the used lubrication oil management programs and explain the different regulatory scenarios that apply to used lubrication oil. The training also provides basic information for used lubrication oil handlers whose activities are regulated by the applicable federal, provincial and territorial legislation. 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 lubrication oil and when used lubrication oil is considered hazardous or regulated waste; indicate the regulatory path that must be followed based on specific used lubrication oil mixtures; identify used lubrication oil generators and discuss the regulatory requirements they need to follow; transporting, and recycling requirements; and summarize how used lubrication oil filters are managed.
