program assessment

audits

-Walk-thru of facility to review where hazardous waste is generated, accumulated and stored.

-Review of all documentation including waste determinations/profiles, LDR, manifests, training policies and emergency preparedness, prevention, and contingency plans.

-Review of federal and state regulations, deficiencies, and corrective guidance.

-Formal written report with photos and recommendations

training

Wildflower offers a variety of training opportunities for your consideration. Firmly based in hazardous waste management, based on 5 years of program management and 6 years of training experience, we bring the training that you need to you.

We focus on your company’s operations, your state specific rules, and can recommend the training that you and your teams need. Training topics include:

RCRA for hazardous waste management. Required annually for LQGs, (40 CFR 262.17(a)(7)) and recommended for SQGs (40 CFR 262.16(b)(9)) and VSQGs to stay compliant with new rules as well as the basic regulatory requirements.

DOT HazMat for hazardous materials transportation. Required every 3 years for anyone who performs functions associated with shipping hazardous materials (49 CFR 172.704). Understanding the hazardous materials table, marking and labeling requirements as well as when to placard are all covered for transportation by highway.

OSHA 8-hour hazardous waste operations and emergency response (HazWoper/HWPR) for maintaining your 24- or 40-hour certification (29 CFR 1910.120). If your employees are going to be responsible for responding to, and mitigating spills and releases of hazardous materials/waste, then having the ability to assist them in staying compliant to perform those functions is vital. Additionally, if your employees are not the primary responders, a general awareness HazCom or GHS training may be better suited.

Training can be done both in-person and virtually. We want to meet you where you are, but also be able to train all the employees that you want to participate.

HAZARDOUS WASTE MANAGEMENT

The Environmental Protection Agency’s Resource, Conservation and Recovery Act requires employees of large quantity generators who manage hazardous waste receive annual training LQG, 40 CFR 262.17(a)(7)) and recommended the same for small and very small generators (SQG, VSQG) regularly to stay compliant with new rules as well as the basic regulatory requirements. Some states require all generators to document some relevant training as well. Ensuring that your employees understand the specific management standards, both at the federal and state level, will improve daily handling and safety around the waste.

TRANSPORTATION GUIDANCE

Department of Transportation (DOT) for hazardous materials transportation requires training for anyone who performs functions regulated by the US DOT (49 CFR 172.704). Understanding the hazardous materials table, marking and labeling requirements as well as when to placard are all covered for transportation by highway is necessary for shipping both hazardous waste and all hazardous materials. The correct completion of shipping papers (aka manifest or bill of lading) is also a part of this training and should also be included in any hazardous waste RCRA training that your employees receive. This training is required every three years.

ESG Guidance

Beyond sustainability, businesses are now concerned with ESG, Environmental, Social and Governance factors in the way their operations affect society and the world. Recycling is no longer the goal; it is the expectation. Avowing the practice of “being green” or “carbon neutral” are being challenged by individuals and environmental groups as many of these “conscious organizations” are found to be fraudulent. But acknowledging ESG doesn’t have to start with a global agenda, it can start right in a company’s backyard.
