Product Description

The Hazardous Waste Compliance Guide helps employers easily understand the most important hazardous waste regulations that affect their business. It explains the basic links between employee safety regulations and hazardous waste. The Guide also asks and answers fundamental questions regarding the handling and reduction of hazardous waste.

The Guide includes in depth discussion of OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard (Employee-Right-to-Know), which is one of the most commonly cited OSHA standards, and is among the standards for which employers pay the most in annual fines and penalties. There is emphasis on Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs), which are the main source for employee information about hazardous chemicals in the workplace.

The Hazardous Waste Compliance Guide provides an overview of the major federal laws that address hazardous waste, primarily the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and its implementing regulations and amendments. The Guide discusses other relevant laws, such as the Risk Management Plan under the Clean Air Act and Storm Water Program and Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure regulations under the Clean Water Act.

Because EPA's regulatory scheme rewards waste minimization, the Guide discusses the two basic ways to minimize waste: reduce the volume of waste or reduce its toxicity. There is discussion of waste minimization techniques for both hazardous and non-hazardous waste, with special emphasis on recycling. The Guide also details the requirements that apply to universal wastes.The Hazardous Waste Compliance Guide comes with six sample safety plans required by EPA and/or OSHA, including a new sample Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure Plan. This edition of the Guide also includes discussion of these and other current topics:

Discussion of recent regulatory action including these and others: changes to effluent guidelines for construction sites, withdrawal of exclusion for emission comparable fuels, revisions to Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) requirements and SPCC Plan deadlines, and updated training programs for operators of underground storage tanks (USTs)
